In Old Testament days, before Jesus walked on the earth, the Jewish culture used perfect lambs as an offering to God. Because of sin on earth, they needed the shedding of blood for forgiveness.
As Easter approaches, I am forever grateful that I no longer have to sacrifice lambs to ask for forgiveness. Jesus came to earth, as planned from the beginning of time, to be my sacrificial lamb once and for all.
He did that for anyone willing to accept Him and live a life with purpose. He walked the life we do while on earth, yet without sin. He understands our pain, our grief, and all the disappointments we face. What a comfort as I come to Him, the perfect sacrificial Lamb, to seek help and guidance.
My husband and I are now into lambing season. We have many beautiful lambs. I am thankful I don’t have to sacrifice any of them as my need to be forgiven. Easter has taken care of that. Thank you to Jesus, the Sacrificial Lamb, for His sacrifice of giving his life so we can be forgiven.
The next day, John saw Jesus coming toward him and said:
Here is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! John 1:29
Happy Easter. We have much to rejoice for our eternal state.
