Come to the sacrifice. May 27
The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. John 1:29
Sin is most certainly an awful thing, we can look into our world and see it’s terrible effects. Both in nations, families, individuals. as terrible as it is, sin should not cause us to despair or give up. The reason it should not is because we can draw near to the sacrifice that takes way the sins of the world. Listen to what John goes on to say in verses 35-37. Again the next day after John stood, and two of his disciples; and looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, behold the Lamb of God. And the two disciples heard him speak, and they followed him. Jesus is the offering that takes away our sin. In the Old Testament, they had many feast and festivals complete with sacrifices for the people’s sin. Large crowds gathered during these Holy days. They drew near to the sacrifice, that their sins would be removed. Today don’t let sin cause despair and defeat in your life. Simply draw near to our sacrifice who is the lamb of God , Jesus Christ. Be as Johns disciples when they knew that he was the lamb sent from God to be the sacrifice for their sins they followed him. Thank God their is a cure today for sin And it’s effect upon our hearts,minds and life .The lamb of God, Jesus Christ.
