For the Law was given through Moses; grace and truth were realized through Jesus Christ.
–John 1:17 (NASB)
I was watching a broadcast of a teaching of the Word this morning and this verse really caught my attention.
It’s a verse that reveals to us that a change happened, a really big change. This change was so big it altered covenant with the LORD God and it had everything to do with Jesus Christ–everything.
Covenant with the LORD God.
Let the profundity of humankind having a covenant with God, Creator of all creation, sink in through the pores of your skin.
Then, let the build up to John 1:29 get right into the marrow of your bones, into your soul, and singing praise and thanksgiving with your spirit.
Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world (John 1:29)!
I cannot say I know exactly what John the Baptist felt when he realized that the man walking towards him was the Lamb of God, but the moment I received that knowing in me about Jesus being our Savior, my Savior, I wept and wept and wept–like the kind of weeping that makes you feel light.
I realized that Jesus really is Truth and He wrapped me up in a blanket of grace.
I changed from something old and mixed and right into something new.
Do you believe that Jesus Christ is the new covenant we are in with our Abba Father? Do you believe change has everything to do with who Jesus is? Do you believe that He has really taken away our sins, the sins of the world?
