OUR LIFE IN CHRIST story: Through Holy Baptism, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, we are brought to faith in Jesus our Lord and Savior, who redeemed us, by His death on the cross, through His Word, and the Sacrament of Holy Communion, and in regular worship we are strengthened until that great day when we shall rise to eternal life with the King of Kings.
This Iamb is the sacrificial Iamb. Jesus is the sacrificial Iamb. In the Old Testament, Iambs were sacrificed to take away sin. Today, we no longer need to sacrifice Iambs because Jesus, the Lamb of God, was sacrificed on the cross for us, and all who are yet to be born. Jesus redeemed us of our sins.
"And by his wounds we are healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all." Isaiah 53:5-6
"The next day John the Baptist saw Jesus coming toward him and said, "Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!" John 1 :29
