Lamb of God

The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! John 1:29

Who is The Lamb of God? John the Baptist clearly identifies him as Jesus Christ. So what does it mean for Jesus to be the Lamb of God? And how is John able to identify him?  John the Baptist was sent as a messenger from God to pave the way for the Messiah (Isaiah 40:3) The voice on one calling in the wilderness to prepare the way for The Lord. John was a witness and confirmation that Jesus is The Messiah, The Lamb of God to take away the sins of the world

The Passover Lamb was instructed by God to be sacrificed to save the Israelites from death. The blood of the Lamb was a sign and seal they were protected by God (Exodus 12) The requirements of the Lamb of God was to be without defect and to not have a single bone broken in there body (Leviticus 22)

Jesus is The Lamb of God, who was without sin yet paid for the sins of the world. (1 Corinthians 5:7) By the power of his holy blood, we are redeemed and protected. This is why Jesus allowed himself to be crucified to be our sacrificial Lamb to save us from our sins.

Remember what Jesus has done for you, he laid down his life for you as the Lamb of God. There is no power greater than his blood, so rejoice for you have been redeemed by his blood in Jesus Name Amen
