Lamb of Our Sacrifice
Lord, I have heard of your fame; I stand in awe of your deeds, Lord (Habakkuk 3:2, TNIV)
Sometimes, like if you’ve grown up in church, or if you’ve just heard about the crucifixion enough times, it starts to lose its hold on you. “Yes, Jesus died for me.” “Yes, He took my sins on Him on the cross.” “Yes, He rose to give me new life.”
On Good Friday, we remind ourselves of Jesus’ sacrifice, but what about the rest of the year? Is Jesus’ death for us so insignificant that we don’t need to think about it for 365 days?
Paul stood firm in the face of persecution by carrying the death of Jesus with him. (See 2 Corinthians 4:10.) But we don’t want to be reminded of Jesus’ death only when we’re in trouble or facing trials.
So take the time today, right now, to remind yourself of what exactly Jesus did for you. To let the enormity of His sacrifice sink in.
Habakkuk was in awe of the Lord’s mighty deeds. Let’s also be in awe of Jesus’ one amazing deed, His taking our place, His taking away our sins. Be humbled. Be filled with wonder and amazement.
Give Jesus your reverence, your admiration, your praise, your fear. He is the lamb of our sacrifice, and He is also God.
FAITH STEP: Give Him all of you—surrender yourself to Him in thanks for what He did. Be completely uninhibited in your love for Him, your gratitude, your worship. Stand up, right where you are, and be in awe of your Jesus.
