MARCH


March, from the western viewpoint would be the Lord’s month, in that it uses two symbols of our Lord to describe it.  “In like a lion, out like a lamb.”

In response to the question, who is worthy to open the  seals?  “Weep not: behold the Lion of the tribe of Judah.”   Revelation 5:5

They worshipped Him with a loud voice in Revelation 5:12 saying, “Worthy is the Lamb that was slain.”

The power of the lion with the meekness of the lamb.  He can be ferocious in attacking the sin in our life; yet be gentle with us at the same time.   Truly the lamb that was slain is now the lion that reigns.

In Mark’s Gospel, one considered written to the  Romans who marched  over the whole known world, we see Mark use military terms in describing Jesus’ ministry: casting out demons, rebuking death, walking on water, etc.  He uses terms like straight way, and forthwith showing power over whatever He faced.

Jesus will be powerful in your life like a lion, and He will be gentle to you as a shepherd who would watch over His lambs.  Come to Him in meekness and humility, and you will see that He is humble.  Come to Him with pride, and you will see the lion.
