I was reading this today in the book “Fashioned to Reign” by Kris Vallotton. I felt it to good not to share.
“When most Christians think of Jesus, they envision a mild-mannered, soft-spoken gentleman walking the streets of Jerusalem, meekly sharing His wisdom while kissing the foreheads of children. Sadly, many believers have very little idea about the real nature of the Christ they are following. For the most part, the Church has domesticated the Lion of the tribe of Judah, relegating Him to a household pet or imprisoning Him behind the bars of some religious zoo. But the truth is that when Jesus walked the earth, He was a countercultural radical who not only healed the sick and raised the dead, but also liberated the oppressed and set the captives free.”
