The Barking Lion August 9, 2016

When the Liu family went to the People’s Park zoo in China, their disappointed son said the lion was barking like a dog. How come? It was not a lion at all, but a Tibetan mastiff, a large hairy breed of dog which closely resembles a lion. Zoo officials had sent the regular resident, an African lion, away to a breeding centre. The only way to be a lion is to be born one. And John, in his gospel, clearly states that the only way to become a Christian is to be spiritually re-born. Since we are all born with a natural tendency to do wrong he wrote “As many as received Him (Christ) to them He gave the right to become the children of God, to those who believe in His name…who were born not of the flesh, but of God.” And that’s why Jesus tells us, “You must be born again.” I’m Alex Rockwell.
