Week three of the series, Seven, a dive into Revelation.
Revelation 4 and 5: John's vision continues and he is taken into God's heavenly throne room where he hears of a mighty and ferocious lion that will finally bring heaven to earth. What he, and often we, expects is that a powerfully lion will destroy the enemy once and for all. But what he sees is a slain lamb covered in its own blood. It is this lamb, the resurrected Christ, that is able to end injustice, hatred, and violence in our world and bring the Kingdom of Heaven in all its fullness. As the church, we too are called to trust that the slain lamb that is as powerful as the lion and to imitate Christ as the self-sacrificing lamb.
