Trinity Lutheran School – March 2018 Newsletter Article.
The next day [John] saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! John 1:29
Lent is such a wonderful season for Christians. We spend forty days contemplating the price Jesus, the Lamb of God, had to pay to be the final sacrifice that took away our sins and the sins of the entire world.
Lambs played a major role in the lives of God’s people throughout their history. Abel was a keeper of sheep. Moses was a shepherd before God called him to shepherd His people out of Egypt. David was out keeping the sheep when Samuel came to anoint him. The Old Testament priests used lambs for sacrifices to pay for the sins of the people. The shepherds around Bethlehem were watching their flocks when the angels announced the Savior’s birth. Jesus used sheep in a lot of His stories and parables.
God’s plan was to sacrifice His only Son to pay for our sin. Sins that we continue to commit 2000 years after Jesus lived. Sins that were committed back in Eden by Adam and Eve. Sins committed by Caiaphas and the council that led to Jesus’s death. The sins of thought, word and deed that I committed the day I wrote this. All of our sins, all of the sins of the entirety of humankind were paid for that day on Calvary.
So let us embrace the Lent season. Let us go with Jesus to dark Gethsemane. Let us walk up Calvary. Let us see Him on the cross. In other words, let us “behold the Lamb of God.”
