What makes real Heroes?
*** Many times when heroes are asked;
why they put themselves in jeopardy to save someone else, they reply that they didn't even think about themselves at the time.
All they thought of was there was danger and wanted to help the other person. Heroes are not made; they just notice certain dangers and react as needed - irregardless of the danger to them selves!
Irregardless of how it felt or the circumstances present! ***

Here is what happens when Heroes are asked - Why??
What makes real Heroes?
They have learned how to forget about themselves - and then have got to the point where they truly "Love thy Neighbor"
Come to understand how real true Heroes are made!
John 18:23 "Jesus answered him, If I have spoken evil, bear witness of the evil: but if well, why do you smite me?"
Jesus replied, If I have said anything wrong [if I have spoken abusively, if there was evil in what I said] tell what was wrong with it. But if I spoke rightly and properly, why do you strike Me?
God's kind of love is not self-serving or self-seeking!
Agape love causes a person to lay down his life for another (John. 15:13), because he has literally forgotten himself.
John 15:13-15 (NIV)
13 Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
14 You are my friends if you do what I command.
15 I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.
Many times when heroes are asked why they put themselves in jeopardy to save someone else, they reply that they didn't even think about themselves at the time. All they thought of was the danger and helping the other person.
Agape God's kind of love!
God's type of love involves emotions many times, but it is not an emotion.
It is an act of the will.
We can choose to love even when we don't feel like it and we can always conduct ourselves in a godly manner, when ever we feel God's kind of love.
God's kind of love is a choice.
God's kind of love is also the antidote to selfishness and pride.
We can never conquer self by focusing on self.
The only way to win over self is to fall in love with God more than with your-self.
It is in discovering God's love that we lose self love.
** This is what gives humans access to the Kingdom of God!
Jesus didn't just feel some emotional sensation when He chose to die for us, this was the greatest demonstration of God's kind of love that the world has ever seen! He made the total dedicated choice in spite of any emotions. Because He was totally consumed with God's love, He acted properly, even when His emotions didn't agree.
Jesus is the ultimate example of God's kind of Agape Love.

By Jack Zavada
Definition: Agape is selfless, sacrificial, unconditional love, the highest of the four types of love in the Bible.
This Greek word and variations of it are found throughout the New Testament. Agape perfectly describes the kind of love Jesus Christ has for his Father and for his followers:
Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them.
(John 14:21, NIV)
Jesus lived out agape by sacrificing himself for the sins of the world.
All Types of Love in the Bible
Eros, or sexual passion. The first kind of love was eros, named after the Greek god of fertility, and it represented the idea of sexual passion and desire.
Philia, or deep friendship.
Ludus, or playful love.
Agape, or love for everyone.
Pragma, or longstanding love.
Philautia, or The love of one self.
