|Sheepies are so cute!!!!!!!!!!!|
To further elaborate this reality check to all Christians, sheep are so stupid that when they will hear water at the bottom of a gigantic cliff, they will get thirsty and literally walk off the cliff to a long falling death if the shepherd does not notice their peril and stop them before they walk off the edge. In fact, they are so stupid that shepherds often have to break their legs to forcibly prevent them from accidentally killing themselves! It sounds cruel, but it's either that or they accidentally commit suicide. With this in mind, a person would have to admit that in all likelihood all sheep would have died from natural selection at the beginning of creation if it weren’t for human intervention as shepherds. Similarly, it is in the same way all humans would have killed themselves and each other without Christ, who is our Shepherd. We are stupid like sheep, and if a man or woman in Christ realizes this then they will also know that this means God's grace and forgiveness is not generous solely due to love, but also because we are so stupid that if Christ was not absolutely generous with His grace we would all die still from ourselves. Hopefully no one will go walking off a cliff now that they have read this...
Anyone who has ever felt that they are doing well with Christ should understand that it is only by absolute grace that we are even prevented from all killing ourselves in our mounting sins as we near the end times. Just as sheep often kill themselves in their own stupidity, we too are stupid and fall into sin just as sheep fall off cliffs, even when it means that sin is our certain death. This sin-condition will worsen as we near the end times, so remember this verse below to help solidify this lesson in humility and the coming of the end of the age...
22 “If those [end times] had not been cut short [by Christ's intervention], no one would survive, but for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened."
