The lamb of God Who Saves US, #98

98, 10-8, SHOW  NOTES & COPYRIGHTS,  (Scheduled 4/6/2023)


Today we are reading and discussing 3 poems about Jesus, the Lamb of God, what He has done for us and the blessings that we receive as we receive as we believe that Jesus is the Son of God, lived on the earth as one of us, a life without sin, took the sins of the world upon Himself, as called to by His Father, a death that was the final sacrifice God required for the forgiveness of man’s sins.  If we will believe we will receive everlasting life in Heaven with our Savior.

“We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us 

has turned to our own way; and the Lord has 

laid on him the iniquity of us all.  Isaiah 53:6, NIV

The Lamb of God, with God before time,

perfect, as is God, in every way,

before the words were written in lines

Jesus, the unblemished Lamb was there.

Jesus and God, with the Holy Spirit,

indivisible, the Trinity;

so the Lamb of God is also God,

who saves our souls for eternity.

We, living on this earth, a herd of sheep,

we wander, are lost not knowing the cost,

not knowing, we cause a pain so deep

that God sent Jesus to find and save us.

An earthly shepherd has a special one,

one of the herd that seeks the wandering, 

those sheep that are lost, that have gone astray,

returning them home before the day is done.

Our Heavenly Master has sent His Son

to find the lost and to gather the strays,

to bring us home before the end of days.

The Lamb of God, a never ending search.

            Before we knew Him

            He knew who we were,

            He knew our thoughts,

He knew our prayers.

And He knew of our rebellion,

Before, He has always known.

Yet He loves us still

and He always will.

He sent His Son

to be the one

that would seek us out

even as we doubt.

He sent His Son to gather us in,

the unblemished Lamb, the Sacrifice,

to pay the price, to die for our sins

so that with God we are finally put right!



The result of Bible study.  The lamb who gathers us in, who died for our sins.



Page 14, Living in Gods Rhyme

“Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, 

the root of David, has triumphed. He is able to open 

the scroll and its seven seals.”

Then I saw a Lamb, looking as if it had been slain, 

standing at the center of the throne . . .

Revelation 5:5-6

As I sat reading of John’s vision

I felt as if I never fully understood

That for eternity God’s decision

Remains forever for my good.

Yes, I have read of the cruelty 

Of his beating on the way to the cross,

Of the agony of his death,

The death of God’s son.

The death of my condemnation.

I know that by God’s grace

I will be with him forever.

I know I will see his face

And feel his loving embrace.

But reading the words of what John saw,

Though they shouldn’t, they rub my wounds raw:

“A Lamb, looking as if it had been slain,”

Knowing it is from my pain.

The resurrected Jesus in human form

Appeared as if he had been reborn,

Perfect in every way.

And with us he will stay.

Though forgiven, the wounds I caused

Are still there, showing his care.

May I never forget his love for me,

The suffering, 

So that with him I will forever be.


Reflection on The Lamb of God

In God’s Rhyme I wrote a poem called “Love” about the pain and suffering Jesus experienced on the way to and on the cross.  When I read the line in Revelation it inspired this poem, I was struck by the Lamb looking like it had been slain.  I know that my sins have been forgiven.  I know that my sins and my straying cause God pain, but I never really thought about how deeply that must affect God.  And then it is ever harder to grasp how much he loves me if the scars are still visible.

A Time Before

An when Jesus had cried out again

in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit.

At that moment the curtain in the temple

was torn in two from top to bottom.

Matthew 27: 50,51

The veil in the Temple of the Old Testament

Concealed the Holy of Holies, the place

where the Ark of the Covenant 

and God’s presence rested.

One time each year the priest entered

To offer atonement for the sins of God’s people.

Then Today

The veil is taken away.  But whenever

Anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away.

2 Corinthians 3:16

The veil was torn, God’s presence now shown

To those who believe in his atonement for our sin.

It is now through Jesus that we see the face of God,

That we can live in his presence, that his face is known.

Jesus is the high priest that sits at God’s right hand

Making intercession for us as our prayers we present.

It is through his atonement for our sin that we now stand

Knowing that through his Son, we are always in God’s presence.

If we accept God’s gift,

The grace of his love,

The death of hIs Son

In a way that by us

Could never be done,

We will not see the veil,

We will see only his love.

We now come to God through Jesus

Who lived facing the temptations

We live with each and every day.

He understands our weaknesses.

Now and Forever

Therefore, since we have a great high priest

who has ascended into heaven, Jesus, the Son

of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess.

For we do not have a high priest who is unable

 to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have

one who has been tempted in every way, 

just as we are – yet he did not sin.

Let us then approach God’s throne of grace

with confidence, so that we may receive mercy 

and find grace to help us in our time of need.

Hebrews 4:14-16

It is through Jesus that we are now able to be in God’s presence.


As we come to the end of today’s podcast, let us pray.

Dear Heavenly Father we come to you in prayer as we end today’s podcast.  Dave and I thank You for leading us through the day and into tomorrow.  We thank You for all you have led us to and through.

We pray for our listeners and viewers; for their needs, healing and the salvation of those who have not yet accepted the gift of Your grace by faith. 

We pray, Lord, for this world in which we live.  Father, as Christians lead us to proclaiming the gospel where ever we are.  May we do so in a loving  way.  Lead us to the truth of the days we are living in.  

Dear Lord, prepare us and our listeners and viewers for the coming week.  We pray that it is You we live for and You who leads us.  As we walk with you  this week, may it be Your hand clasped around our hand so we may feel the grasp of Your love.

And this week may we remember the words from 2 Corinthians, 12:9; 

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, 

my power is perfect in weakness.”

At the beginning and at the end

And every moment in between,

May our strength be for His strength

So His perfection may be seem.

(from God Still Rhymes, Concluding Prayer)

We pray in the name of Jesus, our Savior and Redeemer.

Amen                                                                                                                                           (2/26/23)
