Don’t be a weak sheep. Be a baddass lamb!

I hope you’re enjoying Sheep Week. I am.

One of the reasons I think the sheep analogy is no longer helpful is because sheep are weak. If you are a sheep, then you are supposed to be weak.

So if you have to be a sheep, be a baddass one!

    Jesus said, “Feed my sheep.” It wasn’t because his plan was for all of mankind to be thoughtless sheep under his control. It was because he knew that people ARE generally thoughtless sheep, self-centered, politically correct trend-followers, and we need the proper care until we grow into spiritual maturity and can care well for ourselves. That proper care is not given by lecturing and preaching, but by example. But again, that’s getting off the topic.
    The Spirit calls us not to be sheep, but to not be sheep. In the film, The Life of Brian, Monty Python’s reluctant messiah was trying to make that point. He told the gathered crowd, “You’re all different.” To which the crowd chanted beck in unison, “We’re all different.” Only one man called back, “I’m not!”
    That man had the right idea.
    But what about lambs?
    Sometimes we are called to be sacrificial lambs. Not because God takes some sort of perverse pleasure in, or is fascinated by, watching us suffer, like a child burning ants with a magnifying glass; but because sometimes the only course by which moral integrity can be upheld involves suffering. Jesus did not die to pay for our sins, but because the only other option open to him was to abandon his principles, thereby destroying his life’s work. He didn’t pay our moral debts, he just showed us how to do it. Each of us is still responsible for one’s own actions.

    Lambo should lose the cross. It’s loaded, and dangerous.

    Good points Lutek. I have fallen in love with Mark’s presentation of Jesus and the gospel. At the end we have a mystery where the resurrection happens off page And you ask where is the big reveal? Well if you follow the angels advice and go back to Galilee, in Mark you will turn to Jesus call of the disciples at the lake. Follow me, he implores. And the story takes us to the cross. And there is where you find the risen Christ. You follow his path.

    We could also just be goats…they are very bold and will charge at things that make sheep flee.
