THEME: JESUS LAMB OF GOD, WHO TAKE AWAY OF SINS OF WORLD!
(Isaiah 49: 3, 5-6; 1 Corinthians 1:1-3; John 1: 29-34)
The Lamb of God said John the Baptist went to his slaughter in silence but in Strength, for the redemption of many, which he does even today. When Jesus died, he left his name. Therefore, in the name of the Lamb of God, his follower even today continue to take away the sins of many and continue to sacrifice their very lives to liberate those who suffer as victims of poverty, depression, injustice, oppression, loneliness and appalling human conditions.
A short story: A wealthy young couple walked into a large orphanage one day to ask to adopt two children. The director of the orphanage, beaming with satisfaction, said “Come let me show you two of the nicest children in the orphanage.” The wife turned quickly and then remarked kindly but firmly: “Oh, please no! We don’t want the nicest children; we want two that nobody else would take.”
That was a sacrifice, upon which even the gods throw incense. The Lamb of God challenges us to make sacrifices similar to his for love of our neighbour. If the heart is denying sacrifice, it means love is dying.
To be able to give or sacrifice a large part of oneself to others is the most satisfying thing in life. It is not always the talented ones who serves best, but the consecrated ones. Sacrifices and service is a thing of the heart not of the head.
HAPPY SNOW DAY!!
