Lamb of God

Description

A young sheep on its own is an easy target for enemies. This why we have our Savior and our Salvation walking this earth as a Lamb.

John 1:29-34

The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! This is the one I meant when I said, ‘A man who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me.’ I myself did not know him, but the reason I came baptizing with water was that he might be revealed to Israel.” Then John gave this testimony: “I saw the Spirit come down from heaven as a dove and remain on him. And I myself did not know him, but the one who sent me to baptize with water told me, ‘The man on whom you see the Spirit come down and remain is the one who will baptize with the Holy Spirit.’ I have seen and I testify that this is God’s Chosen One.”

And so we have Jesus, the Son of God, our Savior and Salvation walking this earth as a Lamb. This should tell us a lot about the attitude He took as He apprised His mission to save us. He didn’t come with a strong offensive push against the governments of this world, and He didn’t have a strong defense against them either. He came as a Lamb into a world of wolves -- and He won; for us.
