Behold the Lamb of God

Is the faith and obedience of Abraham too much to imitate?

"Then Abraham took the wood for the burnt offering and laid it on [the shoulders of ] Isaac his son, and he took the fire (the firepot) in his own hand, and a knife; and the two of them went on together.

And Isaac said to Abraham, My father! And he said, Here I am, my son. [Isaac] said, See, here are the fire and the wood, but where is the lamb for the burnt sacrifice?

Abraham said, My son, God Himself will provide a lamb for the burnt offering. So the two went on together."
(Gen 22:6-8 AMP)

Like a lamb led to the slaughter

Do you enjoy the fruits of the Passion of the Christ?

"But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed."
(Isaiah 53:5 NIV)

"When he sees all that is accomplished by his anguish, he will be satisfied. And because of his experience, my righteous servant will make it possible for many to be counted righteous, for he will bear all their sins."
(Isaiah 53:11 NLT)

Offer Thanksgiving Sacrifice to Jesus

How shall we make a return to the LORD for all the good He has done for us?

“This is a day to remember. Each year, from generation to generation, you must celebrate it as a special festival to the LORD. This is a law for all time."   (Ex 12:14 NLT)

"For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death till He comes."
(1Cor 11:26 NKJV)

One of you will betray me

Why is every sin a betrayal?

“How much will you pay me to betray Jesus to you?” And they gave him thirty pieces of silver."   (Matthew 26:15 NLT)

"You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives."
(Genesis 50:20 NIV)

My God is now my strength

Do you know that God remembers His Covenant/Promises forever? Do you marvel at the profound truth that the Eucharist is the New Covenant?

"Before I was born the LORD called me; from my mother’s womb he has spoken my name.  He made my mouth like a sharpened sword, in the shadow of his hand he hid me; he made me into a polished arrow and concealed me in his quiver.  He said to me, “You are my servant, Israel, in whom I will display my splendor.”
(Isaiah 49:1-3 NIV)

"Then I said, I have labored in vain, I have spent my strength for nothing and in empty futility; yet surely my right is with the Lord, and my recompense is with my God."
(Isaiah 49:4 AMP)

We need the poor

How do we need the poor?  The poor introduce us to Jesus when we die!

"Why was this perfume not sold for 300 denarii [a year’s wages for an ordinary workman] and that [money] given to the poor (the destitute)?"  (John 12:5 AMP)

"You will always have the poor among you, but you will not always have me.”  (John 12:8 NLT)

Accept God’s will gracefully

Do you accept with serenity the things you cannot change?

“My Father! If this cup cannot be taken away unless I drink it, your will be done.”
(Matthew 26:42 NLT)

"Because the Sovereign LORD helps me, I will not be disgraced. Therefore, I have set my face like a stone, determined to do his will. And I know that I will not be put to shame."  (Isaiah 50:7 NLT)
