DAILY READINGS: Ruth 2:1-23; Isaiah 42:1-25; 2 Corinthians 2:1-17

Isaac said to his father Abraham, “My father!” And he said, “Here I am, my son.” He said, “Behold, the fire and the wood, but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?” Abraham said, “God will provide for himself the lamb for a burnt offering, my son.” So they went both of them together. Genesis 22:7-8

Where is the lamb?” is the great Old Testament question. “God will provide for himself the lamb” is the great New Testament answer. The Lamb was identified by John the Baptist, “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!” (John 1:29). Christ was the Lamb who was crucified for the sins of the world, your sins and mine, on Calvary. Is He your Saviour? —Milton Haack

Lamb of God, we fall before Thee, humbly trusting in Thy cross. That
alone be all our glory; all things else are only dross. —Joseph Hart
