Behold, The Lamb of God!
the Lamb who was slain!" The author is Michael Horton.
BEHOLD, THE LAMB OF GOD!
Our whole worship is to fall down before the thrones of the Father and the
Son, in the power of the Holy Spirit, to receive the forgiveness of God and
to bring sacrifices of praise to the Lamb who was slain. Every time we
worship, we should be self-consciously committed to the ministry of John the
Baptist: "Behold, the Lamb of God!" Remarkably, even in heaven the
majestically enthroned Son is the slain Lamb. We never outgrow the cross. We
never get beyond the need for mediation between God and ourselves-not in this
life, nor in the next.
