Behold the Lamb who can save you
John 1:29 - The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.
In the Old Testament during the exodus of Israelites from Egypt, there was a moment when the people sinned against God and attracted his wrath. There were serpents that came in midst of them and started killing them by thousands. When Moses prayed to the Lord, the Lord asked him to make a fiery serpent of brass on a pole, and if anyone who attracted the wrath of God and looks up to that fiery serpent, would be saved.
The wrath which we attract as sinners is like the serpents which came in midst of the Israelites and God has made a fiery serpent of brass on a pole for us to behold. Jesus took the maximum wrath on Himself and was hung on the cross. When we lift our eyes and behold Him who took our wrath for us, we are saved.
The Lamb of God is full of grace and timid; and by beholding Him, He saves us from the wrath of God which our sins attract. If you see the wrath of God among us, destroying us; it is time to behold the Lamb of God hung on the pole.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Father God, You are Holy and Righteous. Our sins attract your wrath but your love saves us. You have given us Jesus your Lamb, to look at hung on the cross. Father we behold your Son hung on the cross, save us from the wrath which is unleashed among us. We make this prayer in Jesus' Name, Amen.
