The best advice in part, is to ‘watch the Lamb’.
There is uncertainty regarding the precise events of the Wednesday prior to the resurrection so many years ago. But one thing is for sure; emotions ran high and peace and hope were all but reality in the minds of many.
The perfect Lamb.
The son of God, Jesus, was facing His last days on this earth, fully aware of his own destiny as well as the thoughts and future words and actions of his disciples who were closest to him. His storm was coming.
But Christ was/is perfect. . . and yet so capable of feeling immense pain that he was sweating drops of blood. Luke 22:44
“And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.”
Because of who He is, He is not only the one to watch, but also the one to study, follow, be in relationship with, and entrust our lives to. John 3:16
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
Strong’s definition of ‘believe’ is ‘commit unto’, ‘commit to (one’s) trust’, ‘be committed unto’, ‘be put in trust with’, ‘believer’ ‘to entrust (especial ones spiritual well-being to Christ)’
I can’t think of a more perfect day or time of year to be still and reflect on the magnitude of the perfect love of Christ. He left the perfect heavenly realm to be born of humble means and journey toward the cross and unfathomable pain, on his road to the victory of his resurrection for our hope of eternal life with him.
Do you have stories on how watching the Lamb impacted your life? I would love to hear some. :)
