As the name of my blog indicates, I spend a lot of time thinking about home. Of course, my Heavenly Home is the one that is eternal, so that’s where I need to lay up my treasures, and that’s the one I’m striving for. But in the meantime, I have been given this tiny piece of the here-and-now—this home on the edge of town, this family, this neighborhood—in which to serve Him. And, though this is in the earthly realm, I want the things that happen here to be investments in the Heavenly realm.

The Lamb

Musings about Jesus, the Lamb...

"Who would have thought that a Lamb could rescue the souls of men?”
(lyric from the modern hymn "Wonderful, Merciful Savior" by Eric Wyse and Dawn Rogers)
Behold the Lamb of God who taketh away the sins of the world. John 1:29

Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers;
But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:
Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you.
I Peter 1:18-20

After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;
And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.
Revelation 7:9, 10

Thanking God today for Jesus, the Passover Lamb, the Lamb of God who was sacrificed to take away my sin!
