Reflection

What does it mean when we say Jesus is the Lamb of God.

St John the Baptist was the first person to use this term for the Lord as he introduced Jesus after His baptism in the Jordan river.

St John the Apostle also carries on very clearly in his gospel writing and the book of Revelation the continuing narrative of Jesus as The Lamb of God.

When we ponder the Old Testament we see Moses being instructed by God to carry out the Passover meal in a certain way.

A lamb without blemish is to be killed, the blood of the lamb is to be sprinkled on the door posts and lintels of the homes of the children of Israel, and the flesh of the lamb is to be roasted and eaten with unleavened bread and bitter herbs. – Exodus 12: 3 – 11

In the New Testament we see the Lord Jesus Who has been identified as The Lamb of God celebrating the Passover with His disciples at the upper room the night before His death on Good Friday. 

In this meal, He calls the bread, His body given up for His disciples. And the cup after supper, the new covenant in His Blood. Luke 22: 14 – 20.

The LORD was clearly confirming His role as the Lamb of God Who was slain for the salvation of the world. And on Good Friday the fulfilment of His words came to pass as He died on the cross.

So the question is why? Why did Jesus have to go through all this pain and suffering! And humiliation! 

He did it because sin humiliates us as children of God and robs us of the ever abiding presence of God. This is why Adam and Eve hid themselves from God, they were “ashamed and naked”.

Jesus wanted to restore to us our dignity as children of God and restore us to His Father’s Eternal Presence! O glory to God!

He died to save us from sin and all the lies of the devil. To reveal to us the Truth and Eternal promises of the Father and to restore to us the promise of eternal life with Him and The Father by the power of The Holy Spirit.

When we consider ALL THAT CHRIST HAS DONE FOR US we realise that nothing else matters but our eternal love with God forever. And so all things on earth should chart the path to His glory as we hold firmly to the salvation that Christ has won for us through His death on the Cross and victorious Resurrection.

Prayer

Lamb of God, You take away the sins of the world, have mercy on us.

Lamb of God, You take away the sins of the world, have mercy on us.

Lamb of God, You take away the sins of the world, grant us peace.

And the grace of eternal life with You forever in our Father’s glory.

Amen!

With all my ❤

Always & Forever,

To The Lamb.
