The Compassionate Side of History

John sees the “scroll,” God’s plan to save the world.  Who can open it? An elder “said to me” that the “Lion” will rescue us.  The Jewish people heard that the power of the Lion will save.  However, John turned and “saw a Lamb” (Rev. 5:5-6).  In Jesus, we “see” God’s compassion unfurl the saving plan for the world. Lord, let me be on the compassionate side of history.
