The Lamb Is More Than Enough

“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony…” Revelation 12:11


Jesus Christ is the lamb that takes away the sins of the world. You may think what you have done is too ugly or terrible to be forgiven, but Jesus was the lamb who was slain before the foundation of the world. So, even before the world was in the condition that it is in now, the lamb was already more than enough. Sometimes, it may be hard to get over the horrible thing you did that hurt so many people, but God looks beyond that moment and sees the blood that Jesus shed and pardons you from your sin. 


When the very first humans, Adam and Eve, messed up, the Bible tells us that “God slew an animal, and He took the covering, and He covered their nakedness.” Then, the next generation in their family, Cain and Abel, had a fight, and Cain murdered his own brother. Even though Cain was living in a society that encouraged “an eye for an eye” mentality and would have endorsed Cain being killed as punishment, God forbid anyone to touch him. He showed him mercy because the lamb was more than enough. God’s mercy even extends to generations.


Then, a godly man named Lot got into a terrible mess in Sodom and Gomorrah. He had no business being there and was trapped, doomed, and headed for judgment. But God said the lamb is enough, and He extended mercy to his family, and an angel led them away from that terrible place. 


Your family is not too far gone. They are not out of God’s reach. It doesn’t matter if they are in “Sodom and Gomorrah” right now; the lamb is mightier, and His blood cannot be conquered! Don’t give up on what God told you He will do with your child, marriage, or difficult situation.


In the New Testament, there was a woman who was caught in the act of adultery. Right out of the bed, barely clothed, she was thrown at the feet of Jesus. She was ashamed, embarrassed, and humiliated. The Pharisees wanted to stone her, but Jesus stood by her side and showed her mercy. The lamb was all she needed, which was more than enough to save her from a life of sin. 


“He canceled the record of the charges against us and took it away by nailing it to the cross.” Colossians 2:14. Jesus will stand by your side in your times of failure. He will never leave or forsake you. His sacrifice is more than enough to cover all your shortcomings. Remember, you are an overcomer by the blood of the lamb, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
