All of us like sheep have gone astray, Each of us has turned to his own way; But the LORD has caused the iniquity of us all To fall on Him. -Isaiah 53:6
I don’t particularly like sheep. I never heard of one being strong or doing anything heroic. Some prefer the ancient Greek humanist idea that sinning shows courage to rebel against the gods. Sin is a fall uphill, they think. But sin actually is a deadly plunge, and ignoring it leads to death. Sin is rebellion against our true nature. God is grieved, but we are damaged severely when we stray. That’s why Jesus took on our sin. He invites us to let all the pain be His. If that takes being a helpless sheep, than one would be a fool not to delight in the role.
