"March-like Messiah"

 

Scripture reading:  Php. 2:5-11

Opening text:  Matt. 16:13-18

Additional reading:  I Pet. 2:4-8; Acts 15 {esp. v. 13};

     You are probably familiar with the saying:  "March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb."  The Lord Jesus Christ, our precious Messiah, could also be described with such a similie.  One of the Messianic titles for Jesus is "The Lion of the Tribe of Judah."  This name reminds us of His sovereign, kingly majesty.  Our Lord is also referred to as "The Lamb of God."  This Messianic symbolism reminds us of the amazing substitionary, sacrificial atonement of His life in place of ours.
