John 1:29 (NIV®)
The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!”
The good news about Jesus is the only story we have to tell, and Jesus is the only solution we’re offering. Diminishing God the Father does not make Him more acceptable, and lowering His standards does not make us more acceptable. We are sinners who are utterly, completely dependent upon God’s mercy and the saving power of Jesus Christ through His shed blood on the cross. Let’s give thanks to Almighty God for His power to take away your sins and mine!
Father, I come before You in humility to repent of my sin. I thank You for the blood of Jesus Christ that cleanses me and washes me and sets me free. Thank You, Lord, that You have forgiven me and made me righteous in Your sight and cast my sins into the sea of forgetfulness. In the powerful name of Jesus, amen.
