Scripture of the Day - April 5, 2012

John 19:16 They took Jesus and led Him away.

In his prophecy about Jesus, Isaiah (53:7) said that He was brought as a lamb to the slaughter. John the Baptist declared (1:29) Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.

Jesus bore out sins on His back when he carried that cross to Calvary, He became sin for us when He was nailed to that old rugged cross. The Pharisees of that day led Jesus away just as the High Priest of old would lay hands upon the scapegoat, confess the sins of the people, and lead the goat into the wilderness to carry away their sins.

Jesus is our scapegoat, taking away our sins. Jesus is the sacrificial lamb, paying the penalty for our sins.

How could anyone ever doubt the love God has for us...He manifest Himself in the flesh and paid the penalty Himself for our sins. It actually pleased Him to do this! That's how great His love is for us!!
