Muggeridge: the Lamb

Tuesday, September 23, 2014
    The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!”
    —John 1:29 (NIV)
    The cross for the first time revealed God in terms of weakness and lowliness and suffering; even, humanly speaking, of absurdity. He was seen thenceforth in the image of the most timid, most gentle and most vulnerable of all living creatures—a lamb. Agnus Dei! [The Lamb of God!]
    ... Malcolm Muggeridge (1903-1990), Jesus Rediscovered, Garden City, N.Y.: Doubleday, 1969, p. xi (see the book)
    See also John 1:29; Ex. 12:3-4; Matt. 11:29; John 1:36; 10:17-18; 2 Cor. 13:4; Phil. 2:5-8; Heb. 5:7; 1 Pet. 1:18-19
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have taken our weakness on Yourself.
