Daily Devotion: Where Is the Lamb?

Bible Reading: Genesis 22:1-14

Key Verse: Verse 7 - “And Isaac spake unto Abraham his father, and said, My father: and he said, Here am I, my son. And he said, Behold the fire and the wood: but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?"

Key Words: where is the lamb

We know Isaac asked the question, “Where is the lamb?” Abraham’s answer is not only one of faith; it is also prophetic. God will provide Himself a lamb. And He did---Jesus Christ.

John the Baptist, upon seeing Jesus said, “Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.” John 1;29b

The biggest bulldozer in the world is the D575A. It’s 16 feet long, 25 feet wide, and 41 feet high. It weighs 225,000 pounds. It’s a huge machine to bulldoze dirt. A couple of years ago, it came to a county where there was an overload of garbage, and the bulldozer was brought in to dig a big hole that would collect the garbage and remove it from the lives of the citizens.

On the cross, God dug a hole so big He could collect the sins of the whole world---past, present, and future. On the cross, He gathered all the sin and took out His eternal wrath on Jesus Christ for you and for me. “God made Him to be sin for us, who knew no sin.” 2 Corinthians 5:21a

“God will provide Himself a lamb.” Genesis 22:8 (Prophetic)

“Behold, the Lamb of God.” John 1:29 (Prophecy fulfilled)
