153. God’s place
John the Baptist declares the reality of who Jesus is. He is inspired:
“Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world.” John, chapter 1, verse 29
If there’s anything the world should remember about Jesus, it’s that he cleanses us from sin. Especially the sin of wanting to take his place. To understand Jesus “the Lamb of God” let’s develop a sincere relationship with him, observe him and listen to him. We will be stunned by him. May we take the place that is ours. It’s a privilege!
We know how hard it is to keep a promise. It’s better not to make a promise, because it’s quite possible that we cannot hold it. But Jesus fulfills what he promises:
“This is the promise that he made us: eternal life.” 1 John, chapter 2, verse 25
Is there a better friend than being with Jesus? To remain with Jesus and to follow him is to guarantee ourselves freedom, to offer ourselves a better life, a more confident and well-adjusted life. For if we have Jesus as a friend, we will be better equipped to face the difficulties and the more difficult moments. With him, we are already in a journey to eternal life.
