16. The Lion of Judah
“The King of Beasts.” That is the title of the lion. This is an acknowledgement of his strength, his awesomeness (not of the teenager kind, but really), his power, and his rule of the life-giving waterholes. A lion is nothing to fool with. A lion cannot be ignored. A lion is not approached casually or helter-skelter. A lion demands respect. So too our Saviour. He is not tame. He is not cuddly. He may not be treated like a pet, at our whims. But note: this is the lion of Judah, of the tribe from whom the promised Savior would come; so this lion uses his strength for his family, for his own, to protect and provide. So we can be happy He is for us, not against us.
