March 9: The Perfect Sacrificial Lamb

Read 1 Peter 1:18-20

For you know that you were redeemed from your empty way of life inherited from the fathers, not with perishable things like silver or gold, but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without defect or blemish. He was chosen before the foundation of the world but was revealed at the end of the times for you who through Him are believers in God, who raised Him from the dead and gave Him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God. (1 Peter 1:18-20)

The perfect Lamb of God journeyed first to the cross, then to the tomb before rising victorious. The precious blood of Christ, given for us, suffered the unimaginable along this journey to the empty cross so you and I would not have to.

“Lamb Of God”, written by Twila Paris

Your only Son no sin to hide
But You have sent Him from Your side
To walk upon this guilty sod
And to become the Lamb of God

Your gift of love they crucified
They laughed and scorned Him as He died
The humble King they named a fraud
And sacrificed the Lamb of God

Oh Lamb of God, Sweet Lamb of God
I love the Holy Lamb of God
Oh wash me in His precious Blood
My Jesus Christ the Lamb of God

I was so lost I should have died
But You have brought me to Your side
To be led by Your Staff and Rod
And to be call a lamb of God

Oh wash me in His precious Blood
My Jesus Christ the Lamb of God
