Easter Lamb

My Friend Debbie          "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16 (KJV)

         Easter is a time to consider the importance of this great event celebrating the death and resurrection of Christ, John 3:16 was the only reason for Jesus' coming to earth. Without purpose, He had no reason to leave heaven. His main objective for living was to die, as a sacrificial lamb, on our behalf, so, in turn, we might live.

         Matt. 20:28 states that Jesus came to give His life a ransom for many. Luke 19:10 tells us He came to seek and save the lost. His purpose was to fulfill the Father's plan for redemption, and He was obedient to the Father, even unto death.

         Jesus is Easter's Lamb whose blood was shed for the forgiveness of our sins. It is liquid love poured forth as from an alabaster jar. Once poured, it cannot be contained. It runs its course, touching all in its path, searching out the deepest crevices, softening the hardest heart with its sweet fragrance, like the healing balm of Gilead. Its perfumed essence prepares us for our own death in Him.

My Friend Debbie          It is God's love that conquers all, heals all, saves all, for God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son whose liquid love took the form of blood drops, which poured forth from the wounds of the Lamb, the one who was Love Himself. Calvary is proof of this love divine, everlasting and totally complete - an acceptable sacrifice offered in exchange for us. There is no limit to God's love for us; it was fulfilled in Christ Jesus

         The custom at the feast of the Passover was to release a prisoner, whomever the people wanted. A notable prisoner called Barabbas was an insurrectionist who had committed murder. When Pilot asked the people who they would want released, Jesus or Barabbas, the people cried, "Give us Barabbas. Crucify Jesus."

         I ask you today, whom are you accepting, and whom are you rejecting. Will you accept the ransom made by Easter's Lamb? Consider your answer carefully. It will make the difference between eternal life, or eternal death. I Cor. 15:21, 22 says "For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive." (KJV)
