CHANNELS OF FULFILLMENT DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR FEBRUARY 9, 2022 (The Lamb of God.)
TOPIC: The Lamb of God.
TEXT: (John 1 vs. 23 – 34)
I welcome someone to the very presence of God. Do you know that sheep is soft-hearted, upright, elegant and meek. They are usually very quiet and gentle, holding themselves aloof from the world. In a herd, all the sheep tends to listen to their leaders and show esteem to them. No wonder Jesus spoke in John 5 vs. 30 saying, “I can of my own do nothing: as I hear, I judge and my judgment is just; because I seek not my own will, but the will of my Father which sent me”.
Jesus was the Lamb of God who listens and does the will of His Father. As He hears He judges. On your behalf Jesus will hear, decide deliberately with God and all the host of heaven to uplift you and cause you to stand on the mountain top. Amen!! It is the Lamb of God that delivers from the hand of sin. In verse 36 of today’s scripture we saw, “And the next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sins of the world”. He is the lamb and He taketh away the sins of the world. If He takes it away then why should you stay with it?
He takes out sin in us which we cannot take out by ourselves and lives in us to actualize perfection with us. Why then did you chose to retain sin and carry out the works of the flesh when Jesus came to take them away, why would you have them kept? “Nothing that defileth shall enter into the kingdom of God”. Horace Bushnell said, “O thou lamb of God that taketh away the sin of the world, what thou bearest in thy blessed hands and feet I cannot bear, take it all away.
Hide me in the depth of thy suffering love; mold me to the image of thine divine passion”. His will is to take them all away. The greatest miracle is not the breeze of anointing. It is not the blind who saw neither is it the dead that arose but it is the transformation of men. A change of heart where one can gladly say, the things I use to do before, I do them no more. God bless you earnestly, Amen! Hold God by discipline!!
- Oh God I thank you for your word to me.
- Father arise and show me your strength and power.
- Father, take away any impurity in me.
