A Crow Among Doves

A Crow Among Doves

The following Indian fable illustrates the difference between having a form of religion in contrast to one who is the LORD’s by His Grace in Christ.

“A crow found a covey of doves feeding together, living in perfect unity and goodwill. Anxious to join them, he realized that his raven-black feathers contrasted strongly with the white or light grey coats of the doves. So, finding a heap of white ashes, he rolled in them until his coat appeared, if not white, to be a light grey hue. As he tried to join the doves, their immediate reaction was to edge away from the intruder and finally to fly off altogether. The wise crow noticed that his walk was different from the doves! He hopped: the doves walked, putting one foot down after another. After some practice at this new kind of locomotion, the crow came another day to where the doves were, a fresh layer of ashes covering his black feathers and walked along carefully in imitation of the walk of the doves. He made some success and was about to become friendly when he smelled a carcass some little distance away. Leaving the grains the doves had permitted him to share with them, he flew over to the carcass and was soon enjoying himself feeding on the dead body. The next day, realizing that his eating habits had offended them, the crow made up his mind that no carcass should divert him from enjoying their company that day. However, soon after, another jet-black crow came and perched on an overhead branch. Looking down and recognizing a brother crow began to make a series of ‘caws.’ Its brother crow among the doves, forgetting himself, fittingly replied, “Caw! Caw!”

Being a believer in Christ is not a matter of learned behavior but being made so by God in Christ. His saving, redeeming Grace in Christ alone is what makes the difference! It is the electing Grace of God that marks out those that are His, Christ’s precious blood has redeemed them to Himself and the Holy Spirit that calls them out and separates them to Christ, by whom their sins were forgiven and His righteousness put to their account by the Father in His death. Any other attempts at righteousness are certainly false and will be exposed as such.

“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.” (Ephesians 2:8-10)
