Jesus Life

Greatest Gift of Love

Holy is the Lamb
Slain for all of man
Came to set us free
Give us victory

He laid down His life
The greatest sacrifice
Then rose again
Rose again to give me life

Holy is the Lamb
Holy is the Lamb
Holy s the Lamb that was slain for us

Jesus Son of God
Greatest gift of love
Came down from heaven
Died on a cross
Greatest gift of love

From the very beginning of time, sin has been covered by a blood sacrifice. When Adam and Eve ate of the tree of knowledge of good and evil and realized they were naked for the first time, they were suddenly ashamed. God was not pleased with their sin and used animal skins to make them a covering. God Himself set a pattern for the covering of sin. We see Abraham almost sacrificing His son before God provided a lamb. When Israel was in Egypt, it took the blood of an innocent lamb, which had to be swiped on the top and sides of the door, to keep the death angel away. In Leviticus, we read of all the sacrifices the people had to make to cover their sin. It’s just the way God planned it from the beginning. “Without the shedding of blood, there is no
remission of sin” (Hebrews 9:22). Man can do nothing about removing their sin except cover it by the blood.

Jesus is the Lamb of God, sent down to this earth to be our sacrifice for sin. His blood covers us, just like the animal skins covered Adam and Eve in the old testament. The difference now is that Jesus removes our sin completely, washes us white a snow, and casts our sin as far as the East is from the West. He is the Lamb of God, seated on the throne in heaven just waiting for us to come home. Do you know Him today? Have you asked Jesus for forgiveness? Have you asked Him to wash away your sin? This is a personal decision. Please make it today!
