The next day he saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! John 1:29
What the ”Lamb of God“ meant to the Jews is significant for their worship and identity. As Christians, Jesus is the full expression and representation as the Lamb of God.
Once and for all, there would be no need for ongoing lamb or animal sacrifice for our sins. The message to the Jews and the world is freedom from our efforts and the works of sacrifice. Jesus the Lamb of God would take away every sin!
We all know people who do not accept or recognize Jesus, as the God/Man and Lamb of God. Let’s pray for those in our lives who don’t know Jesus as their Savior. Let’s pray that their spiritual eyes would be opened, as John’s was, to behold the Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of their world!
Let’s thank God for our growing revelation through the Spirit of God, that our eyes have been open to behold Him!
