The Lion of Judah
Revelations 5:5 Stop weeping. Behold the lion that is from the tribe of Judah, the root of David has overcome so as to open the book and its seven seals.

John knew that the book must be opened and that the seven seals must be broken. It seemed hopeless that no one could be found that was worthy for the task. Even God himself did not step up to open it.
Worthiness came from the ultimate sacrifice of the lamb. Only He was worthy.
He is the overcomer. We have no real choice but to serve Him and give Him glory by living the example He showed us in His life and His sacrifice. He lived LOVE and that is what we are called to emulate in all that we do.
Lion of Judah, give me strength to serve you faithfully and fearlessly to share your love with others. Let them see you when they look at me.
