THE REAL LION
TEXT: REVELATION 5:5-12
MEMORY VERSE: “And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof” (REVELATION 5:5).
Lions are fascinating creatures with marvelous strength and intriguing terrifying roars that can be heard five miles away. They are magnificent creatures known for their strength to fight against other animals for food and to protect their territory and pride. In the scriptures, the devil is symbolically referred to as a roaring lion. Our Lord Jesus Christ is also referred to as a Lion in our text today. There should not be any confusion in the minds of believers because both of them were referred to symbolically as lions.
Jesus is the real Lion because He prevailed in opening the book which no other man could. The devil is a fake lion and could only roar and destroy sinners who yield themselves to him through sin. No other is as strong and powerful like our Lord. He conquered death and the grave, making Him to be eminently qualified to conquer your fears and failures and solve all your problems. Do not be afraid because you have the Real Lion living inside of you if you are a real child of the kingdom.
QUOTE: Jesus is the Real Lion.
CHALLENGE: You should be as bold as a lion.
PRAYER: Lord, make me bold like the Lion of the tribe of Judah.
