Appear, the Lamb of God!


John is on my thoughts.

I was reading the Book of John 1 day and it occurred to me that I need to create a little sermon on just two verses that caught my interest.

The very first verse says, “When [John] saw Jesus passing by, he mentioned, ‘Look, the Lamb of God!’” (John 1:36, NIV).

As I meditated on this verse, I noted two issues.

The very first is that John was exceedingly excited about Jesus. I could inform by the exclamation mark at the finish of his statement that the sight of Jesus basically blew John up. John acted like a kid who was seeing his father soon after a extended period of separation. It is the type of excitement that 1 would not be capable to include.

Then a believed came to me saying, “This is how excited I need to often be about my Lord!” How correct! You and I have to be this excited, often. God expects this of His worshipers. He is under no circumstances excited about people today of low temperature.

I also learnt a further terrific lesson, i.e., if 1 is excited about Jesus, they can’t afford to hold quiet about Him even if they wanted to. They would uncover themselves shouting, “Look, the Lamb of God!” I then realized that I also had all along been performing specifically the exact same issue. For some time I had been writing articles on Jesus and the Kingdom life. That is my way of saying “Look, the Lamb of God!”

You also have a related obligation. You need to always confess Jesus. You need to often speak about Him, no matter if to Christians or non-Christians. You have no alternative.

This is what occurred to these who heard John shout — “When the two disciples heard him say this, they followed Jesus,” (John 1:37, NIV). Praise God!

When they heard John shout, the two disciples followed Jesus. This is soul winning. God expects every of us to do the exact same, to win Him souls.

Other people today won us more than to Christ. We need to in turn do the exact same for other people. “How does 1 do it?” you may ask. By shouting, “Look!” You can do it your way. John did it his way. Nonetheless, what ever way 1 chooses should quantity to, “Look, the Lamb of God!”

Is it just the unsaved who will need to appear? The answer is ‘No’.

Christians face numerous challenges in life. Due to the fact of this, some of them take their eyes off Jesus and commence to concentrate on their challenges, in the approach providing undue respect to such challenges. This practice magnifies the challenges and tends to make them appear invincible.

We thus will need to hold pointing Christians to Christ. “Look at Jesus. Never ever be overwhelmed by your challenges, status in life or any such issues,” we need to hold reminding them.

It is not just about every Christian who emerges victorious from a fight with the devil. Victory is for Christians who repair their gaze on Jesus, not these who repair their gaze on their challenges. These who repair their eyes on their challenges continue to face defeat till they revise their concentrate.

As youngsters of God, we should hold searching at Jesus, no matter if we are in problems or at peace, no matter if we have a lot or tiny, no matter if people today honor or despise us. That is why we are called Christians.

Appear, the Lamb of God!
