Lamb of God, Son of God!
Scripture reading for April 5th: John 1, Psalm 69, Proverbs 7
Key Scriptures: John 1:29, 32-34 “The next day he saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world! . . . .And John bore witness: “I saw the Spirit descend from heaven like a dove and it remained on Him. I myself did not know Him, but He who sent me to baptize with water said to me, ‘He on Whom you see the Spirit descend and remain, this is He who baptizes with the Holy Spirit.’ And I have seen and have borne witness that this is the Son of God.””
When Jesus appeared where His cousin John the Baptist was baptizing, John made a faith declaration concerning Jesus. John plainly stated that Jesus was the “Lamb of God” who takes away the sins of the world. He also stated that He would be the One who would baptize with the Holy Spirit and Jesus was the “Son of God.” John stated that the Father who had sent him had revealed this to him.
Faith confession: Jesus is the Lamb of God, Son of God, who gave His body and life blood to obtain my forgiveness and allow me to receive the baptism with the Holy Spirit. I hold fast to these truths forever!
Proverbs 7:1-3 “My son, keep My words and treasure up My commandments with you; keep My commandments and live; keep My teaching as the apple of your eye; bind them on your fingers; write them on the tablet of your heart.”
