Quiet Time with Jesus – The Lamb of God

Thursday, 22 December 2016

No Bible character is perfect except Jesus. He is perfect in His Father’s eyes. He is the perfect Lamb to be sacrificed. Only His blood can wash away our sins. Only His blood can cleanse and purify us to be worthy of God’s pardon. He is worthy.

Song: Thank you for the cross Lord; Thank you for the price you paid; In love you came and gave amazing grace; Thank you for this love Lord; Thank you for the nail pierced hands; Washed me in your cleansing flow; Now all I know; Your forgiveness and embrace; Worthy is the Lamb; Seated on the throne; Crown You now with many crowns; You reign victorious; High and lifted up; Jesus Son of God; The darling of heaven crucified; Worthy is the Lamb; Worthy is the Lamb; Thank You for the Lamb; Worthy is the Lamb; Worthy is the Lamb; Worthy is the Lamb; Amen!

You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for You created all things, and by Your will they were created and have their being.
— Revelation 4:11

John wrote: Then I looked and heard the voice of many angels, numbering thousands upon thousands, and ten thousand times ten thousand. They encircled the throne and the living creatures and the elders. In a loud voice they sang: 

Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise!
— Revelation 5:11-12

Then I heard every creature in heaven and ON EARTH and UNDER THE EARTH and ON THE SEA, and ALL that is in them, singing:

To Him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be praise and honor and glory and power, for ever and ever!” The four living creatures said, “Amen,” and the elders fell down and worshiped.
— Revelation 5:13-14

What an awesome picture!

 

The truth is: there is nothing we can do to earn salvation. It is BY GRACE, THROUGH FAITH IN JESUS that we have been saved. If we think that we can earn salvation through works (using our own abilities), we miss it.

O Father God, I pray that nobody misses it. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen!

Jesus said to Martha,

I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?
— John 11:25-26

JESUS is asking, "Do you believe?"

I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life. John 8:12
