The Lion and the Lamb

A word picture most of have heard of:  Jesus is the Lion and the Lamb. Check out this beautiful insight from John Piper as you mull on this truth today.

“Remove the lop-sided and distorted images of your Son that weaken our worship and lame our obedience.  May the power of the Lion and the love of the Lamb make our faith in Christ unshakeable…deliver us from small dreams and timid ventures… Make us love with fierce and humble love.  Let us share the confidence of the Lion of Judah that gave him the will to die like a Lamb and rise in everlasting joy.”
