25 Names of Jesus: {Day 14} 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

As I mentioned previously, without the shedding of blood, there is no remission of sins (Hebrews 9:22). A perfect, spotless sacrifice had to be made, in order to make a way for sinners to receive forgiveness. God sent Jesus to be that sacrifice.

 We all, like sheep, have gone astray,
each of us has turned to his own way;
and the Lord has laid on him
the iniquity of us all.
7He was oppressed and afflicted,
yet he did not open his mouth;
he was led like a lamb to the slaughter,
and as a sheep before her shearers is silent,
so he did not open his mouth. (Isaiah 53:6-7)

I hope you are having fun hanging your 25 Names of Jesus advent ornaments and discussing His names with your family! Go here to read the other posts in this series and to download the free printable ornaments if you want to follow along as we countdown to Christmas!
