“Behold! The Lamb of God”

John 1:29 (Matt. 1:18-25 = background)

 Introduction: 

I would like to share three characteristics of God’s Lamb with you today. May the Lord help us to see why Jesus, and His birth, are so special. God’s Lamb is special, sacrificial, and saving.

I.  God’s Lamb Is A Special Lamb:  John 1:29a, “Behold!”

A.  His CONCEPTION was special –

B.  His CONDUCT was special –

1. His Miracles:

2. His Messages:

3. His Methods:

 C.  His CLAIM was special –

II.  God’s Lamb Is A Sacrificial Lamb:  John 1:29b, “Behold! The Lamb of God”

A.  He is a SPOTLESS Lamb –

B.  He is a SUBMISSIVE Lamb –

C.  He is a SACRIFICED Lamb – 

III.  God’s Lamb Is A Saving Lamb: John 1:29c, “who takes away the sin of the world.”

A.  He has the power to SAVE sinners –

1. He can cleanse sin:

2. He can convert souls:

3. He can change sinners:

B.  He has the power to SECURE saints –

 CONCLUSION:

When you think about Christmas today, try to keep things in perspective. Christmas must not be allowed to continue its slide into paganism, commercialism and the world of fantasy. You and I who have been exposed to the truth of God’s Word need to remember that Christmas is about that special day when God sent His Son into the world to be the sacrifice for our sins. Christmas is about you coming to know God. After all, that is why God sent His Son into the world!
