Lamb of God
The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!” John 1: 29
Jesus was and is Grace and Truth fully embodied (John 1: 14). Not half-grace and half-truth, but full grace and full truth. When Jesus saves us, we become new creatures in him (2 Corinthians 5: 17). We start seeing sin for what it really is—bondage, not freedom.
Thomas Brooks said, “Saving grace makes a man as willing to leave his lusts as a slave is willing to leave his galley, or a prisoner his dungeon, or a thief his bolts, or a beggar his rags.”
“No man shall ever behold the glory of Christ by sight in heaven who does not, in some measure, behold it by faith in this world. Grace is a necessary preparation for glory and faith for sight.” John Owen
