"Mary had a little lamb; its fleece was white as snow." You probably never thought of it as a Christmas song. But it sure could be. "Mary had a little lamb, and Jesus was His name."
The Bible says, "John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, ‘Look! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world'" (John 1:29).
Why? The Bible tells us that for centuries God's people sacrificed spotless lambs as a symbolic payment of the death penalty for human sin. Until God's Lamb came. That baby in the manger. That Savior on the cross. We've hijacked our lives from our Creator but He loved us so much that He sent His Son to pay sin's eternal death penalty. The Lamb of God. Carrying away the sin of the world.
My sin. Your sin. The day you pin all your hopes on Jesus, you can have every sin of your life erased from God's book - and be guaranteed eternity in heaven. And today, that could begin for you. Contact us at 888-NEED-HIM or ChatAboutJesus.com.
