The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. …John1:29
‘Behold’ by definition ‘…something that should not be neglected by the listener’…..I imagine the greatness of beholding the sight of Jesus. We can hold that image close to our hearts today as He is always with us-we can pray and talk to Him at will, and in our hearts know His great sacrifice for us through God’s grace.
Are we truly submitted to Him?
I pray to know Him better every day and God reveals! Jesus is Love manifested in the flesh – He is God’s immense love for us and as a lamb was sacrificed for temporary atonement, the Lamb is sacrificed for our eternal atonement. We submit to Him. He is our Advocate to the Father.When considering God’s love, consider how immense Jesus’ sacrifice was. He died for our sins. We do not own the ability to come to God without the purified, atonement from sin through Jesus. To know this is to begin to know how big God is. Every person has this gift of grace – one drop of our Saviour’s blood purifies all who come to Him and shed their old skin and adorn themselves as followers of Jesus Christ. He is truly our Love and the manifestation of God’s love for us.
“Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.” – Mt6:34
“My grace is sufficient for thee. “- 2Co12:9
Evil shall pass with the day that brought it,
As the sea is stayed by the barrier land;
When the Giver of Good shall say, “No farther,”
And bid the foeman restrain his hand;
But the grace of the Lord outstays the evil,
Outlasts the darkness, outruns the morn,
Outwatches the stars in their nightly vigil,
And the foe that returns with the day re-born,
As he left it unwearied, shall find it unworn.
