Behold the God of Diverse Excellencies: Behold the Lion Who is the Lamb
Bible VersesRevelation 5:1-10
November 1, 2020
With the presidential election days away, many Christians feel frustrated that their choices come down to two imperfect candidates associated with either character traits or policies they find unworthy of the office. They wish, in an ideal world, for a candidate who possesses all the qualities they desire. And that is why Revelation 5 is a most timely passage for us – because here we are given a vision of a leader, who comes from the ideal world, who possesses everything we are looking for. Far from being a jumble of contradictions, Jesus is the embodiment of an array of diverse excellencies.
