A term commonly used to refer to our God is as a lion. Man, how ferocious. It makes me think of Aslan from the Chronicles of Narnia. The best line in that entire series is this:
“Aslan is a lion- the Lion, the great Lion." "Ooh" said Susan. "I'd thought he was a man. Is he-quite safe? I shall feel rather nervous about meeting a lion"..."Safe?" said Mr Beaver ..."Who said anything about safe? 'Course he isn't safe. But he's good. He's the King, I tell you.”
Our King isn't safe. But he is good. He is OUR lion.
