Sheep were resting in green pastures as Bethlehem’s baby lamb squirmed in a bed of straw.  Residents of the small city were oblivious to the significance of a stable birth and blind to the baby’s future role as sacrificial lamb. Mary bound Him with swaddling clothes not sensing that in the future grave cloths would bind His lifeless body; yes, as God has always provided for faithful followers, He had provided the lamb.

Isaac said, ‘The fire and the wood are here, but where is the lamb for the burnt offering?’ Abraham answered, ‘God Himself will provide the lamb for the burnt offering my son (Genesis 22:7b-8a HCS).” Abraham, as father of future generations of faithful followers of God, spoke of the reality of God’s current power to meet his desperate need yet also prophetically proclaimed Jehovah as provider of the supreme sacrifice, His Son. Behold the Lamb! (John 1:29-34)
