Did you know that the story of Little Red Riding Hood is from Romanian folklore? The mountainous regions of Romania still have a high population of bears, wolves, and creatures that are higher on the food chain than livestock or people!
Because of the threat from predators, it’s common in Romanian villages to see cows meandering down the village streets, unattended by anyone, in the mornings and evenings. Cows are kept in pens behind the houses at night to keep them safe, but when the sun rises, the pens are opened the cows are set free to graze in the open fields.
People have been the prey of the devil for thousands of years. But when the Son arose from death, our pen (the law) was opened by Christ Jesus. Jesus poured out upon us His grace. Everyone is free to accept God’s salvation which is only found when we place our faith in Jesus. All are free to receive salvation by grace, through faith. (Ephesians 2:8-9)
God’s kingdom is available for His children to graze in His open field and be safe both day and night. John 8:36 (KJV) says, “If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.”
That’s good news!
