Heroes are hard to come by. They are overrated and over-played by today's standards. Where are the real heroes? Real men and women? People who have faced a giant and won?

David Wilkerson was a true life hero. He faced giants and won. He was no coward or weakling. He spoke truth when it wasn't popular or fancy. He wasn't a gimmick man.

Tragically he was killed in a motor vehicle accident on Wednesday. His death is a real loss to the Kingdom.

He loved the down and outer. He reached out to drug addicts, prostitutes, and drunkards. He spoke God's Word in love and with great faith. He made a difference in this world.

He authored the best selling book "The Cross and The Switchblade" and founded Teen Challenge Ministries, an outreach to drug addicts. His vision was world changing. It was powerful.

Once when I was a young teenager, he laid his hands on me and prayed for me. I will never forget it. He was strong and powerful. I felt God when he prayed.

We will miss David Wilkerson, but we will see him again. He was a real-life hero.
