"We are often conditioned to see, and trained to see, what we expect to see." The Jews of Jesus' day expected a reprieve from their physical oppression and saw the Messiah as the triumphant Lion; today we see the meek and mild Lamb, rejected, despised, and crucified to take away the sins of the world. He is both. Know that the spirit of the Lion lives in us and gives us victory over sin and our flesh, that He will roar, that He will return and all will bow before Him.
