Where Are All The Lions?
Proverbs 28:1 (KJV) The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.
It seems we live in a world full of lions, but when it comes to those who publically profess a personal relationship with Christ, God’s people often present as meek and mild as field mice. In other words, the content of this message from scripture seems far removed among lost and saved souls. Instead, the wicked are busy and boisterous, and the regenerated are often spiritually lackluster and physically lazy, with some not serving God.
It seems hearts pleading with lost souls about the saving power of Christ are few and far between. Instead, numerous individuals, lost and saved alike, gather together to claim their rights and freedom but often forget to profess God’s truths above the selfish clamoring of this world. Or in other words, even some of God’speople do as they please, when they want, how they want, and when they want rather than as God leads them. Instead of identifying with God, some choose to show the world how close they are to following after the god of this world traveling down the path of wickedness and deceit, leaving a chasm between them and God.
“Lost-hearted lions” travel in riotous fashion, often boldly going against the spiritual grain of God among the world-based wickedness for selfish purposes rather than humbly living in alignment with God and reaching hearts with His vital message of salvation. This kind of narcissistic parade leaves lost people without a message of God or receiving the truths of His Word and left to forge their way through this world.
Spiritual lions seem far and few in between the many disorderly and spiritually dead walking on this earth. However, that said, we do know that God promises a remnant will always remain at work, sowing the seeds of His heart-changing salvation message. This statement remains valid as long as this corrupt world exists. No matter the ever-enlarging number of souls serving and savoring the god of this corrupt earth, lost people never limit God, for He is unlimited in the presence and power of saving souls.
