The King of the Jungle

 “There are risks and costs to a program of action. But they are far less than the long-range risks and costs of comfortable inaction.”   -John F. Kennedy

A lion is not granted his feed simply because he is the king of the jungle and he has the biggest mane: he must hunt and capture his prey.  A passive lion will starve; a pursuant lion will eat.  A Christian is not granted good things simply because he is a king in Christ Jesus and he has a big prayer-life: he must live out faith, that which produces works and righteousness.  A passive Christian will spiritually starve; a pursuant Christian will be spiritually full. 

“Even strong young lions sometimes go hungry, but those who trust in the LORD will lack no good thing” (Psalm 34:10, NLT).
