Wolf To Sheep

Wolf to Sheep

I had heard stories about wolves in sheep’s clothing
I tried to beware of such things, but seeing nothing

One day whilst I was busy nitpicking,
By keeping an eye out for ill-fitting,

Undeniable Truth struck me down,
My eyes up opened and I found…

I was one of them.

I stripped the fake wool from me,
Fell to my knees, asking for mercy

God, change me from my evil wolfish ways
I want to be a sheep for all of the rest of my days

In that moment, His grace alighted upon my wolf skin
He had changed it to white wool, no longer a slave to sin

 


 

Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves. (Luke 10:3)

Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which He hath purchased with his own blood. For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. (Acts 20:29)

Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves. (Matthew 10:16)

Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. (Matthew 7:15)

 


 

A little background on this one – someone on WordPress spoke about a wolf in sheep’s clothing, and then I remembered how Paul started out which led to writing this. For some reason, I had previously read the verses about being sent out as sheep among wolves as a type of warning, like be on guard for the tricky wolves, but then it occurred to me that Paul started out as a wolf, and yet, God struck him down on the road to Damascus and used Him to do so much. So yes, we should wear the armor of God (Ephesians 6:11) to protect ourselves from the wolves, yet, keep in mind that wolves can change – and that’s why God sends sheep among wolves. So that packs of wolves will have the opportunity to become flocks of sheep – because He loves them too. ❤
