Hymn 26

 

We find we are giving our life over and over again. 

Genesis 22, when Abraham was spoken to and he said, “Here I am” (or ‘Here Am I’) and to lift up his eyes and allowed to see what God wanted him to see.  He saw Jesus.  The faith in him meant that God would provide and God did provide.  God gave His son to be slain. 

Luke’s gospel, the disciples and Jesus going a little farther and that His prayer was very costly because He was going to be the lamb slain. 

Exodus, one lamb in the morning and one lamb in the evening to be slain as an offering.  Beginning the day with the lamb and end the day with the lamb.  We can ask where would Jesus go or how would Jesus feel? 

We know how He prayed, "Father, forgive them for they know not what they do.”  Think of Jesus as the lamb and there will then be victory.  Search they own heart first.  The life which I lived by in the flesh, I now live in the flesh.
