The Lamb vs The Jungle

The Lamb vs The Jungle…

Charles Darwin based his theory of evolution on the law of “the survival of the fittest.” It’s basically the same as the “law of the jungle.” It states a truism: that which survives is that which is most fit to survive – or the strongest survive. From Darwin’s law came “Social Darwinism,” which states that the most fit or strong humans, or races, or nations, are those which survive.

The world, in many ways, does function after the law of the jungle. But we go by the law of the Lamb – which states that, in the end, it’s not the strongest who prevail – but the good. Jesus gave His life as a Lamb – and yet his life has become the most powerful, prevailing, and world-changing life ever lived. So don’t seek to be the strongest or the most forceful – seek to be good and holy – and, in the end, you will prevail – in the law of the Lamb.

If you love me, keep my commands. John 14:15

Don’t live by the law of self, survival, and the jungle. Live by the law of the Lamb. Seek not to be the strongest, but to be the most good and holy.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
