Lamb Of God

Today's sermon was on the crucifixion of Jesus. Many a times, we just hear that "He was crucified" or "He was nailed to the cross", but do we really know the full extent of the suffering that He endured? Not many do.

He was spit on, scourged and humiliated by the people around, all for His love for Man (for a more elaborate description you can click here). This brought to my mind this hymn which I heard when I was small titled "Lamb of God".

Lamb of God

Your only Son
No sin to hide
But You have sent Him
From Your side
To walk upon
This guilty sod
And to become
The Lamb of God

Your gift of love
They crucified
They laughed and scorned
Him as He died
The humble King
They named a fraud
And sacrificed
The Lamb of God

O Lamb of God
Sweet Lamb of God
I love the holy
Lamb of God
O wash me in
Your precious blood
My Jesus Christ
The Lamb of God

I was so lost
I should have died
But You have brought
Me to Your side
To be led by
Your staff and rod
And to be called
A Lamb of God

O Lamb of God
Sweet Lamb of God
I love the holy
Lamb of God
O wash me in
Your precious blood
My Jesus Christ
The Lamb of God

After the sermon, we had the Holy Communion. Today's Holy Communion meant a lot more as I've realised how much the Lord had sacrificed for sinful Man on Golgotha. For that, I am grateful.

God Bless.

Just sharing...

The meaning of the Lamb of GOD is...

A Male without blemish. Not a sheep for others...

Exo 12:5 Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats:
