“Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!” John 1:29
“These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Therefore they are before the throne of God, and serve Him day and night in His temple.” Revelation 7:14-15
He that washes himself continually in the blood of Christ does not make light of sin — but detests it above all things; for what can be more abominable than sin, since it cannot be taken away but by the blood of the Son of God? This humbles true believers and makes them watch against sin; and, if it has not the same effect on you, the state of your soul should make you tremble. Talking of the blood of the Lamb and yet trifling with sin cannot agree together — but show a false or a deceived heart. Nothing crucifies us to sin but the cross of Jesus — but this always does. Sin cannot thrive in Gethsemane or Golgotha. Blood makes it wither, fade, and die. And what destroys sin, nourishes grace, so that the believer who has much to do with Jesus in His sufferings, will be holy unto the Lord, ornamental in the Church, and useful among men. May I look away from everything below, and behold the Lamb of God.
Behold the Lamb of God, who bore
Thy burden on the tree,
And paid in blood the dreadful score,
The ransom due for thee!
Look to Him, till the sight endears
The Savior to thy heart;
His pierced feet bedew with tears,
Nor from His cross depart.
Devotion by Karl Heinrich von Bogatzky (1690—1774)
