The Lamb Slain for the World

“Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.” – John 1:29

Now you have gone beyond the bounds of Israel and have come to the Lamb for the world. You have come to the Lamb of God, who dies for Gentiles as well as Jews, for men in the isles of the sea, for men in the wilds of Africa, for men of every color, and every race, and every time, and every clime. Oh, glory be to God, wherever there are men, we may go and tell them of Christ! Wherever there are men born of Adam’s race, we may tell them of the second Adam, to whom looking, they who shall live, and in Him they shall find eternal life. I love to think of the breaking down of the bounds that shut in the flow of grace to one nation. Behold, it flows over all Asia Minor, at first, and then over all Greece, and then to Rome, and Paul talks of going to Spain, and the gospel is borne across the sea to England, and from this country it has gone out unto the utmost of the earth…

‘Round the altar priests confess,
If their robes are white as snow,
‘Twas the Saviour’s righteousness,
And His blood that made them so.

The blood of the Lamb has whitened all the saints who are in heaven; they sing of Him who loved them, and saved them from their own sins in His own blood. “Unto Him that loved us and saved us from our sins in His own blood, and hath made us king and priests unto God and His Father; to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.” There is no whiteness in heaven but what the Lamb has wrought, no brightness there but what the Lamb has bought; everything there shows the wondrous power and surpassing merit of the Lamb of God. ~ C.H. Spurgeon
