Worthy is the Lamb!
On the cross He paid the price for my sin.
On the cross He submitted Himself to spending eternity in Hell in my place.
On the cross He experienced the punishment of eternity in Hell for each and every one of us from Adam on.
He Who is total light with no darkness in Him became total darkness.
He Who had no sin became sin.
“fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”(Heb.12:2)
Jesus looked forward to the joy He would have from saving me from eternity in Hell, cleansing me of sin, establishing me in righteous fellowship with God, and bringing me into the family of God for eternity; and He willingly submitted to the unfathomable agony of crucifixion and separation from His beloved Father.
Worthy is the Lamb! He is God!
“Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing.” (Rev. 5:12)
