Jesus The Lamb Of God



John 1:35-37

*******

In these words, John sets forth two important truths regarding the Lord Jesus Christ.

He Is The Savior Of Sinners. He is the “one and only” Lamb of God. He is the only solution to Man’s problem. Man’s problem is that he is a sinner (Rom. 3:10-13). Man’s problem is that his sin is leading him to Hell (Rom. 6:23). Jesus Christ is the only solution to man’s sin problem (Acts 4:12; John 14:6; John 10:9; 1 John 5:12).

He Is The Sacrifice For Sin. He is the “Lamb of God.” This name pictures Jesus as a sacrificial animal. When Jesus came into this world, He came for the sole purpose of going to the cross to die for sin (Mark 10:45). Only His death can satisfy God (1 John 2:2; 4:10). Only His blood can cleanse the sinful soul (1 Pet. 1:18-19; Rev. 1:5). Jesus is the only Lamb God will accept.

*******

We are to trust in the Lord Jesus as our Savior. We are to come to Him for the cleansing power. We are to be washed in the blood of the Lamb. We are to fully trust in His grace every time.
