Then I saw a Lamb, looking as if it had been slain, standing in the center of the throne. (Revelation 5:6)
From Charles Spurgeon . . ."Jesus continues to wear the image of a slain Lamb — the very image He wore as He wooed our souls and redeemed us by His perfect atonement. Yet these are not simply adornments, but are visible trophies of His love and His victory."
If Jesus thinks it right and good to continue to bear the marks of His suffering, should we not keep them in mind, not simply during this Holy Week, but every day of our new-born lives?
As we, made in the image of our Creator, live day to day, let's keep in mind why we live . . . for the One who suffered, died, rose from the dead. and now lives awaiting our homegoing . . .
