Our Passover Lamb

May 1, 2014

1 Peter 1:18-19, 22-23 NLT … For you know that God paid a ransom to save you from the empty life you inherited from your ancestors. And the ransom He paid was not mere gold or silver. 19 It was the precious blood of Christ, the sinless, spotless Lamb of God. …
… 22 You were cleansed from your sins when you obeyed the truth{through the Holy Spirit}, so now you must show sincere love to each other as brothers and sisters. Love each other deeply with all your heart. 23 For you have been born again{spiritually transformed, renewed, and set apart for His purpose}, but not to a life that will quickly end. Your new life will last forever because it comes from the eternal, living word of God.

1 Corinthians 5:7 NLT … Christ, our Passover Lamb, has been sacrificed for us.
.

Christ, our spotless Passover Lamb is pure and holy. The ransom paid by His precious blood!
.
The Lord’s goal in giving us His Word is not to restrict or cramp our style, but to make us pure and holy. By obediently applying His word to our lives through the Holy Spirit we are transformed to become more and more like Jesus.

Isaiah 53:5 NKJV … He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed.

Just One Look
©2009 Jerry Bouey

Just one look to Jesus will bring healing to the soul;
Just one look to Heaven and the heart will be made whole;
Just one moment to see Him – just one glimpse of Him today;
Falling in love with Jesus is only just one look away.

 

 

 

 

One look away from the world, one look away from your sin,
One look away from your idols – looking only unto Him;
Just one look towards the Saviour, one turn away from the past,
One heart reaching towards Jesus, looking only to Him at last.

Just one look to Jesus, just the simple touch of faith;
Just one heart that hungers for something real in its place;
Just one conscience that senses there must be something greater;
Just one longing within your soul to know your own Creator.

Just one look to Jesus, a glance and then a stare;
Just one look to Jesus, to the Lord who really cares;
One look that leads to salvation, one look that’s full of faith;
One look that reveals the Saviour, one look that saves by grace.

Just one look to Jesus, the Way, the Truth, the Life;
Just one look to the Master brings calm within the strife;
Just one look filled with hope, one look that brings perfect peace;
One look towards the Saviour and the inward struggles cease.

 

Just one look to Jesus.
Just one look.
