New Mascot!

Why do we have a Lion with a crown as our mascot? In the Gospels of Matthew and Luke, we learn that Jesus Christ is a descendant of the tribe of Judah. In Revelation 5, we find John the Apostle on the Isle of Patmos weeping because no one is found worthy to open the scroll of God’s judgment or even to look inside it. Then, one of the elders from God’s throne room says to John, “Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed. He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals” (Revelation 5:4–5). Here, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, is revealed in all His glory as the promised victorious Lion of the tribe of Judah. He is the true king, and the One to Whom belongs the long-awaited obedience of nations. Jesus is worthy of worship because He lived a perfect, sinless life, and in shedding His blood, He defeated sin and death. His death and resurrection have resulted in salvation for His people (John 3:16) and an eternal kingdom that will honor and worship God. He is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords before Whom every knee will bow. At Lakes Church Academy, we are beyond grateful for the salvation Jesus has provided those that believe in Him, and we willingly submit to His Lordship over our lives. Jesus Christ is the Lion of Judah, and therefore the perfect representative of our academy.
