“Judah, your brothers shall praise you;
your hand shall be on the neck of your enemies;
your father's sons shall bow down before you.
Judah is a lion's cub;
from the prey, my son, you have gone up.
He stooped down; he crouched as a lion
and as a lioness; who dares rouse him?
The scepter shall not depart from Judah,
nor the ruler's staff from between his feet,
until tribute comes to him;
and to him shall be the obedience of the peoples.
Advent. Anticipate. The anticipation is the best part for Christians. While we certainly celebrate the birth of the Savior of the world and remember that Jesus came to the earth a sacrificial lamb, a poor baby sleeping in a manger we can anticipate that He will return in a much grander fashion. When we all see Him in the clouds (Mark 13:26) we will know that He is not only a lamb. We will all see that He is The Lion of the Tribe of Judah.
When we think of the baby in a manger we have advantages the Shepherds didn't see that night. We can understand that The Gospel tells us that the King will return. Back then, they shouted that He was not a king. That He couldn't even save Himself. (Matthew 27:42) But He still holds the scepter. It's the promise God made way back in Genesis 49. He rose on the third day and He is coming back in glory! So this is my drawing. I will celebrate the birth of the Lion this Advent and wait for His mighty and glorious return! What are you anticipating this season? Whatever it is, friend. We can rest on the knowledge that our God keeps His promises and live with HOPE because Jesus was born, died and raised again.
