Role models have been in the news a lot recently. Apparently we all need someone to look up to and aspire to. Recent celebrity names put forward have been Amey Winehouse and the Spice Girls. As a Christian I have an array of role models to choose from. Paul the Apostle for his dedication and zealousness for the work of the Gospel. The Lord Jesus Christ for his selfless sacrifice on the cross. The Disciples for thier ordinary-ness. In fact the Bible is jam pacted from cover to cover with characters we could all aspire to and take on as role models. Noah for his steadfast faith and refusal to confirm to the world. Daniel for his focus and David for his humility.
And in more modern times Wesley, Spurgeon & Wilberforce. Great men of faith who teach us all that 'He who puts his trust in the Lord shall not be ashamed."
