“The Sacrificial Lamb”
Monday, April 8.
“The next day he saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world” (John 1:29).
Genesis 22 provides a picture of how Jesus give his life for our redemption from sin. In the Genesis narrative, Abraham took his only son Isaac to Mount Moriah after God told him to sacrifice Isaac. Isaac asked his father about the lamb to be sacrificed. Abraham told his son that God would provide the lamb.
God provided Jesus Christ to be crucified for our sins and our redemption. Abraham did not have to sacrifice his son. God provided Jesus Christ for this purpose. God sees each of us as his child. God loves us and wants us to live a life freed of sins. Let us allow Jesus Christ to take control of our lives.
Memory verse: John 3:16
“As the Father has love me, so have i loved you.” Jesus Christ
