MARY HAD A LAMB
By Elvin C. Myers
Scripture Reading: John 1:29
The title of this devotional is not very original. It has been used by pastors all over the country for years. When Christ was born of Mary in Bethlehem, this was in fulfillment of a plan made by the triune Godhead in eternity past. "And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship Him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world" (Revelation 13:8). God knew Adam and Eve would sin before they were created. He already had a plan of salvation formed. Man would be redeemed by the shed blood of His only Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.
The Lord Jesus would become the sacrificial Lamb of God at an appointed time in the history of the human race. When that time came, John the Baptist announced to Israel, "Behold the Lamb of God which taketh away the sin of the world" (John 1:29). God was under no obligation to save the human race. He offered salvation out of a heart of love beyond anything we can understand. How can we know God loves us? Love is always a giver. That is why John 3:16 says "For God so loved ... He gave .... " Since God has done everything that needs to be done to save lost sinners, how can a sinner be saved? John 3:16 goes on to say, "whosoever believeth on Him should not perish, but have everlasting life." To be saved, it is required that a sinner believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as the Lamb of God who takes away the entire burden of sin and gives that person everlasting life. Aren't you glad that Mary had the Lamb of God, the only One Who can save us and give us never ending, everlasting life!
