The Lion of Judah

on October 1, 2015

Although Jesus is the Lamb of God who came to take away the sins of the world, He’s also something else—a Lion. One day, He’ll return in victory to finally put an end to sin, pain, and tears forever.

The first time Jesus came to earth, He came to die for us like a humble Lamb on the Cross. He lived a perfect life—never sinning and always following God’s will. We could not do that, but He did. Jesus took our sin on Himself so that we could be made right with God (2 Corinthians 5:21). That’s an amazing gift!

But the next time Jesus comes, things will be much different. He is the promised lion of the tribe of Judah, who will rule as the King of the universe (Genesis 49:9; Revelation 5:5). Not only that, He promised to make a new heavens and a new earth (Revelation 21–22). When that happens, He promised that those who trust Him as their Savior will be with Him forever.


Do you want to be in the new heavens and earth, too? You can! The Bible says you must ask for forgiveness and believe that Jesus is the Lamb of God who died and rose again to take away our sins (Romans 10:9).

Hey, Kids! Buddy Davis here.

Jesus has a place in heaven for everyone who asks Him to forgive their sins. Will you ask Him to forgive you today?
