The Power Of The Lamb

“You were dead because of your sins and because your sinful nature was not yet cut away. Then God made you alive with Christ, for He forgave all our sins.” Colossians 2:13 


In the Bible, the lamb represents Jesus. Exodus 12 says that God instructed the Israelites to put the blood of the lamb on the doorposts of their homes to protect them from the destroyer. After they ate the Passover meal, God told them to get ready to leave Egypt. 


When you give your heart to Jesus and partake in the “meal of the lamb,” be ready to leave your old life behind! You may be held captive by an addiction, bondage, or stronghold that has been passed down for generations, but the blood of the lamb is still powerful enough to break you free. The Israelites were slaves in Egypt for 470 years, but that did not stop God from moving them into a new life. Egypt represents a sinful life, and God is saying to you that the lamb is the way out of Egypt. Nothing is too difficult for Him. Vaping, alcoholism, drug addiction, sexual immorality, or any other sin can stop His power from setting you free. The lamb (Jesus) covers it all.


In Revelation 5, there was a frantic search for someone worthy in Heaven. John said, “And then I began to weep bitterly because no one was found worthy to open the scroll and read it.” No one could meet the standard, not Abraham, Samson, or David- all of these had fallen short. But then suddenly, someone told John to stop weeping, and when he looked up, he saw “a lamb standing that had been slain.” Despite all the sin in the world, there was “a lamb still standing.” Jesus is still standing today. He is standing in the gap to offer you a way into eternal life. If you haven’t accepted Jesus, the lamb of God, as your Lord and Savior, it’s not too late. His sacrifice is more than enough to cover all your sins today. 


If you would like to leave your old life and accept Jesus as your Savior, you can pray this prayer right now: “Jesus, I am a sinner. I need to be full of you, and I need your sacrifice to cover me. I ask for your forgiveness, and I will give my life to you from this day forward.”
