THE LAMB OF GOD


By Bible Names of God


      John 1:29 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. {taketh away: or, beareth}

      How shall we say in a few words that which springs up in our hearts and would break forth from our lips? “The Lamb of God which beareth away our sin” is a better rendering, for He takes it away BY bearing it. He bore the sins of those who received Him while here on earth, and he bore them away when He paid the penalty on the Cross and shed His Atoning Blood. God’s Lamb! No one else COULD be God’s Lamb. He was the vlountary offering. What can we do? Believe it, accept it, take our place -WITH- Him, listen to and obey Him.

      Lets us behold Thee every day — Jesus Thou Lamb of God — counting nothing too good to give [up] to Thee or too much to do for Thee. Amen.
