“MARY HAD THE PERFECT LAMB WHOSE FLEECE IS WHITE AS SNOW!”
So, let’s be sure we get this straight. Mary did not have a little lamb, but the virgin gave birth to the perfect male spotless lamb, born to die. The one who took our place, served our sentence and rose from the grave to prove its finality.
Read all about it!!!! Not in nursery rhymes, but in the Old testament of God’s Holy Word. Not just as white wooly animals kept by the shepherd, but as merchandise sold at the market.
It was year after year that everyone was to buy a lamb and bring a lamb. What kind? A clean one, the best male wool they could find. (Leviticus 22:21) Then what? Bring it to the high priest to be sacrificed on the altar to cover their sin, cause day after day the people found themselves falling short of God’s standard. (some things never change!) For without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sin. (Hebrews 9:22)
These little lambs were pointing to Jesus, the Lamb of the world, planned before the beginning of time whose blood was shed for us, once and for all. (Romans 6:9-10) Jesus proclaimed it at His last breath saying, “It is finished!” (John 19:30)
No other sacrifice is needed. Only believe and receive His sacrifice.
And we know that since Jesus has been raised from the dead to die no more, His resurrection life has vanquished death and its power over Him (and us) is finished. For by His sacrifice he died to sin’s power once and for all. (Romans 6:9-10)
Kneel and sing Alleluia. Bend your knee to earning acceptance and sing to Jesus who accomplished what we never could. The Lamb of God, Jesus, took away the sin of the world and purchased our eternal inheritance. Be held as you are and received into eternal life now. All is done.
Mary’s lamb was the Lamb of the World!
For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect. (1 Peter:18-19)
