Look to the Lamb!

"Behold the Lamb of God, who takes away  the sin of the world!" John 1:29
To continually behold this Lamb of God--is life to our souls, and death to our sins! Sin cannot terrify with its guilt, nor prevail in its power--while the heart is looking to this Lamb!

Thus to behold--is to be happy. Thus to look--is to be holy. May this, O my soul, be your daily
employment below, until you behold the Lamb in the midst of the throne above! Astonishing
Thanks to the gracious Father--for the gift of this precious Lamb! Thanks to this
holy Lamb--for bearing and taking away sin! Thanks to the loving Spirit--for showing this Lamb to poor sinners and myself!
"I saw a Lamb, looking as if it had been slain, standing in the center of the throne!" Rev. 5:6
