God is a roaring lion.
That is a very simple fact. Do you feel like you’re surrounded by the enemy and that you don’t know which way to turn when you’re challenged on your faith? Do you feel like that if you open your mouth others are going to shout us down? Well, we have forgotten that God has the louder voice. He has the power to quell those voices, but we have to be brave enough to stand up in a situation and engage the person or persons who wish to fight against God’s truth.
I realize I haven’t written in a while, my job has been crazy busy and I have had some awesome opportunities arise in my life. But now, going forward, I would like to start a series on how we should be roaring lions—being salt and light—in our culture. This series is going to cover the book of Daniel—a man, along with his friends, thrown into a culture hostile to God and His Word. Daniel was a man who had multiple opportunities to stand for God, and took them even when it was unpopular and even when he was facing death.
I am hoping that through this series, we can learn walk as Daniel did—being an ambassador for Christ, an ambassador in chains, A ROARING LION. Remember Lion King? Simba who was young couldn’t roar like his father? But then later in the movie, when he came back to face Scar, he was a spitting image of his father Mufasa, and his roar was just as terrifying—we are to be the very same. We are to be Christ-like but it is His voice that people are to be hearing. We are to lambs with the faces of lions.
Join me on this trek, will you?
