Things that are considered fierce are always considered dangerous and out of control. A fierce fire. The fierceness of an animal. The fierceness of a person’s reaction.
It is this last example I would like to touch on today. When someone gets angry, we often consider them fierce. Rage is a fierceful emotion. Even Jesus got fierce.
But do you ever notice how He was only fierce on matters that affected eternity? He always was calm, cool and collected, as far as we can see in The Scriptures unless He was talking about Eternity. When the sales people turned His Father’s house into a sales floor and at His crucifixion. Two fierce examples of Christ.
I am not sure I would have liked to be there to witness either scene. Jesus was filled with a Holy Anger at those times. And since He is The Son Of God, I can only imagine a fierce energy about the size of an atom bomb building up.
I mean, when He died on the cross, The Earth shook!! The whole thing! And there are stories outside of Biblical proof that corroborate that story! You wanna talk about FIERCE??! People who had never met Jesus, people in other lands far away from Jerusalem at 3pm that afternoon, no idea The Son Of Man was being crucified and taking His last breath, all of a sudden felt their world shake!!
Imagine a snow globe in your hands at the exact moment you get so incredibly angry. That was this planet at the time Jesus died. And we still don’t get it today!! Jesus died for every single sinner, person, human being, gay, straight, black, white, yellow, red, green. Color and sin DOES NOT MATTER!! He has today a fierceness for your soul!! And so many people point fingers and say you can’t come in. Wrong!
Now I am getting fierce, so I shall leave it here. I love each and every person in this planet with a fierceness that only comes from the Holy Spirit. I know one day every knee will bow at the name and vision of Jesus Christ. But until then I will continue to spread the word of God and His Fierce Love for us all.
