John 1:29

John 1:29 (ESV): "29 The next day he saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, "Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!"


One of the greatest declarations ever made in the history of mankind is one by John the Baptist about Jesus, "Behold, the Lamb of God, that takes away the sin of the world." Our hope is found here and nowhere else.

The world has needed a Savior since the fall of man. Murder, envy, jealousy, rage, infidelity, slander, and the like have plagued our world since then. Nothing can change the fact that human has fallen but there is a way to be redeemed out of this mess. God sent His Son Jesus to be the perfect sacrifice so that we could be snatched from the clutches of despair and hopelessness. He came to buy back what was lost.

Have you felt the brokenness of the world to the point of despair? Maybe its the brokenness inside that has caused you to wake up. This is what points us to the Lamb of God, Jesus Christ. He alone takes away the sin of the world. Only He can save us from our fallenness. Believers should be making this declaration daily to those around us. The world needs to hear that our sins can be wiped away. Be the John the Baptist of your generation and make this declaration to the lost. They need it desperately and we can use the reminder!

Father, we thank You for saving us from our sin. Our world is so broken but You have made a way for us. May we repeat the declaration of John daily to anyone who will listen we pray in Jesus' name, amen.
