The slaying of the Passover lamb pictured Christ’s atoning death on the cross for the sins of the world as Christ’s applied blood causes God’s judgment to pass over sinners and gives life to believers (Romans 6:23).
He intended all along to provide a substitute—a stand-in sacrifice that He would accept as payment in full.
Being the Son of God means to possess the nature of, and display the qualities of God. Jesus is the one, only-begotten Son, co-equal, co-eternal with the Father (Colossians 2:9).
Christ is prophet, priest, and king. As prophet He embodied and preached the Word of God. We need Him to instruct us in God’s will. Are you hearing and obeying Christ?
Have you ever felt like you were surrounded by the things of God—the programs, people, and praise of God—but couldn’t find Him anywhere?
