John 1:29. Reading from the World English Bible.
“The next day, John saw Jesus coming to him, and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!”
Today’s message is from a testimony of Jesus’ cousin John the Baptist, through him God proclaimed to us about the One who takes away the sin of the world. Taking away the sin of the world may seems far out there in the world “sins of those people who do not have a relationship with God” He actually takes away our sins; my and your sins.
The word takes that John used is both a present and a continuous tense, well, it is sometimes difficult for people to accept that sin is within us especially Christians, the seed of sin is in our flesh and it can manifest anytime that’s why the Spirit of God within us testifies of us picking up the cross daily. Let us accept the very truth that sin is within us and so ask Jesus to put our lives in light, let Him search deep inside of our hearts and expose everything that He came to take.
He died for it and He was, He is and is willing to take it away, give it to Him. We are purified by Jesus and it is a daily thing otherwise when we become comfortable then the seed of sin within us will sprang to life and before we realize it we would have fallen, we are not different from those believers we know who have fallen, we must daily die to self. If you do not have a relationship with God through Jesus, invite Jesus to be the Lord of your life for He died for the reason of taking away both my and your sins. God bless you.
