John 1:29-34

John the Baptist identified himself as a voice, specifically, “the voice of one crying in the wilderness.” John cried for repentance. John cried out the news of the coming One. John cried forth that the kingdom of Heaven was at hand. John was a voice, John had a voice, John used his voice to prepare the way for Jesus. Have you found your voice?

John was very busy preaching repentance, baptizing the repentant, and preparing the repentant for Jesus. Then one day he saw Jesus Himself coming. “Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world” (John 1:29).

How can I point out the Lamb of God to others if I have missed seeing Him myself? Life is about Jesus! Because Jesus is life. And Jesus is the One who takes away the sin of the world. (Did You Miss Seeing Jesus?)

We will never be the voice crying in the wilderness. I believe, though, that God calls each one of us to be a voice calling in the moral wilderness in which we live. And wilderness it is, hastening steadily toward absolute depravity not seen since Noah’s time. Noah found refuge in his ark. Your refuge is in the Lamb of God. But you will not reach that refuge if you do not see Him! Nor will you help others to safety if, having seen Him, you do not find your voice. Have you seen Him today? Did you even look for Him? (The Voice and His Witness)

Prepare ye the way of the Lord (Luke 3:4)

The Lamb is worthy!

He was slain for our redemption. He was slain for our cleansing. He was slain for our peace. He was slain for our healing. He was slain. For me. For you. For us.

The Lamb is worthy!

To Him belongs power. The Lamb has power to control, to govern, to conquer. He also has power to heal, to bless, to free, to strengthen. His power is unequaled, unrivaled, unlimited. May His power be over us, in us, and through us.

The Lamb is worthy!

To Him belong riches. He owns the cattle on a thousand hills. And the fish in a thousand lakes. And the minerals in a thousand mines. And all the wealth of a thousand galaxies. He also owns the riches of mercy, grace, and longsuffering. He will supply all my need, all your need, and all our need.
