The Sacrificial Lamb of God

 

The only acceptable payment for our true guilt

The perfect lamb is required in the Old Testament. It serves as the “guilt offering” for sin. It is a foreshadow of Jesus Christ, which is the sacrificial Lamb of God. The lamb’s blood was poured on the temple altar to secure forgiveness of God. The shed blood of Jesus Christ covers our personal sin and, and it makes possible reconciliation with your heavenly Father. Are we viewing our sins as God sees them? Have we accepted Christ’s sacrifice on our behalf? Are we trusting Him to be our personal guilt offering? See http://ref.ly/Is53.6-10.

How should I respond to true guilt?

True guilt comes when you recognize the fact that you have sinned. David shows honesty in this regard in Psalm 32:5. “I acknowledged my sin to you and did not cover up my iniquity…And you forgave the guilt of my sin.” God responded in forgiveness. God’s response is the same for you. Note I John 1:9, which says If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” God is faithful. He will always do what He says He will do. Not only has God forgiven you, He has also removed the sin from you.

“As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions.

from us.” Psalm 103:12
