Again the next day John was standing with two of His disciples, and he looked at Jesus as He walked, and *said, “Behold, the Lamb of God!” John 1:35-36
Christ is the sacrificial lamb. His death, endured so innocently, waited for its time so patiently, lead to the atonement of our sins. He was the One Who sacrificed His all for each of us. He endured so much because He loved us so. He paid the price for us all…for me. Thank You, Jesus.
But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:... 1 Peter 1:19
Jesus lived His life with us on earth without a blemish or a spot. He was consecrated to God, set apart to be holy and devoted to His Father. Through Him, we are blessed and able to also be consecrated. Oh, Father, only that I would be able to walk in His steps.
And although you were formerly alienated and hostile in mind, engaged in evil deeds, yet He has now reconciled you in His fleshly body through death, in order to present you before Him holy and blameless and beyond reproach—if indeed you continue in the faith firmly established and steadfast, and not moved away from the hope of the gospel that you have heard, which was proclaimed in all creation under heaven, and of which I, Paul, was made a minister. Colossians 1:21-23
“They will hunger no longer, nor thirst anymore; nor will the sun beat down on them, nor any heat; for the Lamb in the center of the throne will be their shepherd, and will guide them to springs of the water of life; and God will wipe every tear from their eyes.” Rev 7:16-17
Then he said to me, “Write, ‘Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.’” And he said to me, “These are true words of God.” Rev 19:9
Dearest Father, I long to know the One Whom I call Lord…well. I want to truly understand how He was willing to die for one such as I…how He loved me so in order to be the Sacrificial Lamb for me. He is so beautiful and caring, loving and filled with kindness. Thank You, Father for Jesus, the Sacrificial Lamb. Through my gratitude, I open my heart and mind to learning more and more about You, the Holy Trinity,,,the Three-in-One Who are always with me for every need. Oh, I thank You. May my heart be still in order to know You, to see You, to be with You. May we sense the celebration of the birth of Christ Jesus and the true meaning of Christmas. In the Name of Christ, I pray to You. Amen.
