DIG for Monday the 26th of December…..His birth told us about His death…..John 1 v 36

Over the recent weeks we have been celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ.

As we have seen His birth was a picture of His death; He was born as a sacrificial lamb to take away the sins of the world.

Jesus dealt with all sin for all men forever through His death and resurrection (Hebrews 10 v 12 and 14).

In John chapter 1 we see the account to Jesus being baptised by John.

Prior to His baptism John says, “Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world” (John 1 v 29).

John then baptises Jesus, and we know this is a picture of His death and resurrection.

The next day when he sees Jesus John just says, “Behold the Lamb of God” (John 1 v 36).

You see, after His death and resurrection sin is no longer an issue, it has been dealt with.

Being born at Migdal Eder we see that Jesus was our sacrificial lamb, born to die for all our sin.

Our sin was taken away at the cross, and is no loner an issue between God and us.

By looking at the birth of Jesus we can see what His mission was, we can see why He came and what He came to do.

Jesus did what he came to do; He has dealt with all your sin; that is also something worth celebrating.

Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord for the finished work of Jesus, thank you that He has already dealt with all my sin”.

John 1 v 36…..And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God
