VOG: Lions, Crocodile, and Buffalo

I really like this video that Jul at Voice of Grace posted. It's about 8 minutes long, and well worth the watch. In this amateur video, see how a baby buffalo gets captured by lions - and then a crocodile tries to steal their catch - and watch how the other buffalo come to the rescue. It's an amazing video. I like how Jul likens this to the body of Christ working together as we prevail against the devil, who goes around like a roaring lion, seeking to devour.


  1. Joel, This video is awesome!! I'm an animal lover. (Please note the link on my blog for the Animal Rescue Site). Anyway, I was a little nervous about watching but since Julie said the calf was saved, I decided to watch the whole thing even though, at times, my heart was in my throat.

    What a powerful ending and what a great analogy. There's no telling what the church would be able to accomplish if we focused our attention on freeing people from our common enemy, the devil, instead of trying to free people from their denomination so that they can join ours instead.


  2. Aida,

    Yep I'm one of those who will watch videos like this with one eye closed but I also was able to watch the whole thing because I had heard that it was a good ending. At times I wondered... 'how could anything good possibly come out of this!' :)

    But yep, what a great analogy to the church working together as a whole body rather than being divisive.
