If you look closely at the Evanwear Christian Clothing logo you’ll see it’s made up of three components - a crucifix, a lion and a lamb. But what do these elements mean and what do they tell us about our Lord and Saviour?
In the Revelation of John 5:5 we see Jesus described as the Lion of the tribe of Judah. The tribe of Judah was the royal lineage through which many great men of God were born - such as David and Solomon to a name a few - and ultimately from which emerged Christ himself (Matthew 1:1-16). As the Lion, Christ showed himself strong and mighty on our behalf, bringing destruction to the works of the devil and claiming his place at the right hand of the Father.
In the gospel of John 1:29 we see that the great evangelist John the Baptist on seeing Jesus for the first time as the Messiah declared ‘behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world!’ Furthermore returning to John’s vision in Revelation 5, we see Christ depicted as the unblemished Lamb, the perfect sacrifice, and the only One on heaven and earth worthy of the task of redeeming mankind to God.
Finally, through the cross, the merciful Lamb and the mighty Lion are manifested as the man Jesus, who not only bore the weight of our sins, He completely destroyed the power of the enemy, conquered death forever and opened the way for all of mankind to be reconciled with God. As we see in 1 Corinthians 1:18, the cross is indeed the power of God to those being saved.
What a powerful symbol of God’s matchless power and unfailing love!
In a generation where symbols are more than just embellishments - they are a defiant proclamation of who a person is, what they believe and what they stand for, we invite you to join us to boldly and unashamedly stand for Jesus.
