A man and his son were walking in an isolated forest. They reached a point where they realized that they had gone too deep into the forest.

Having no weapon, they realized that it might be dangerous because there was a possibility of meeting a bear. They decided to walk back.

As they made a U-turn, the son commented: “Daddy, you can run faster than me”
“That is true!” The father responded.
“That means, if a bear attacks us, you can run and leave me behind,” the son said.
“No, son! I wouldn’t do that.” The father emphasized.
“What then would you do?”
“I would make sure that you are ahead of me as we run.”
“But my pace is so slow, that means the bear will catch up with us in no time.”
“If it does, I will engage it in a fight as you run for your dear life.”
“But daddy, you don’t have any weapon with which to fight it, will it not kill you?”
“Yes son, that is a possibility! If it is the price for your life, I would pay it.”

***************

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life”—John 3:16.


Jesus loved us so much that He allowed Satan to “catch up” with Him and kill Him so that we may live. He engaged Satan without any weapon. Ours is to ‘run’ for our dear life:

“He was oppressed and afflicted, yet he did not open his mouth; he was led like a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is silent, so he did not open his mouth”—Isaiah 53:7.

He is the Good Shepherd:

“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. The hired hand is not the shepherd and does not own the sheep. So when he sees the wolf coming, he abandons the sheep and runs away. Then the wolf attacks the flock and scatters it. The man runs away because he is a hired hand and cares nothing for the sheep—John 10:11-13.

Have a blessed Easter.
