Did you catch the scene? John the Baptist saw Jesus coming. He stopped, pointed, and said, “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world.”
As we begin our journey, I invite you to reflect and give thanks for the people in your life who took time to point Jesus out and say, “Look, the Lamb of God.” It may not have happened in that exact way but we would be remiss if we did not offer our praise for the gift they planted in our lives.
Did they invite you to worship? Did they teach you how to pray? Perhaps they demonstrated a life of discipleship that became attractive to you. Maybe they taught you how to share your life through service or the joy of giving so others could find the gift of faith.
John recognized Jesus right away. Our task is to recognize the presence of Jesus in our lives and to respond to the invitation to grow. How do you need to grow during this season of Lent? Do you need to establish a stronger pattern of worship? Is your prayer life something that honors God? Are you demonstrating your Christian Discipleship through giving to others? What is your next step?
“Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world.”
