I overheard someone last night telling somebody else, somewhere in London, that he would rather prefer to live 1 Day as a Lion than 100 Days as a Lamb and that gave me something to think about. What would I choose? .. I said to myself..
For me, the answer that immediately came to my mind was that I would rather live 100 days as a Lamb. Why? Well, because I choose to follow Master Jesus, who was The Lamb and who died 2000 years ago so that I can now be free and trully live.
In the eighth book of the New Testament of the Bible. Paul the Apostle and “Timothy their brother” who wrote this epistle to “the church of God which was at Corinth, with all the saints which were in all Achaia” said:
“Christ’s love has moved me to such extremes. His love has the first and last word in everything we do. Our firm decision is to work from this focused center: One man died for everyone. That puts everyone in the same boat. He included everyone in his death so that everyone could also be included in his life, a resurrection life, a far better life than people ever lived on their own.” (2 Corinthians 5:15, MSG)
To me, personally, 100 days as a Lamb vs 1 Day as a Lion is a far better life.
What would you choose? To live 1 Day as a Lion or 100 Days as a Lamb?
