Behold the Lamb of God
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 in the book of Moses the Lord had instructed Moses to put a fiery serpent on a pole and set it before the people so that when they look up at it they may live (Numbers 21:8-9).
When Jesus died on the cross He took our sins on Himself and became sin for us. So that, when we behold Him on the cross, we may live.
So my dear brothers and sisters if you are feeling unworthy as a sinner, I invite you to the foot of the cross of Jesus, and I ask you to look up at the Body of Jesus hung on it and receive forgiveness and new life; in spirit be resurrected with Him.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord Jesus, even when I was not worthy and did not know You, still You chose to die for me. Now I come to your cross and look up unto your Body which was given up for us and I receive forgiveness for my sins. For You have taken them on You and died for me, thereby with You I may be resurrected. Amen.

1 Peter 1:19-21
19 But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:
20 Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you,
21 Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God.
