Behold

Behold Jesus!

 

Have you ever seen a YouTube video and told someone else – “Look at this!”  Then the person says, “Look at what?”  Then you say, “Just look at it!”  This happens with all kinds of things. Whether it is a rainbow, a new gadget that does amazing things, or a new house, you are excited to show people.  That is how Jesus is, just look at him, and see his death and resurrection and you will have everything you need to see about God.

John the Baptizer introduced Jesus saying, “Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!”

 

The first step in a spiritual journey with the true God is to Behold his Son.  Look at his Son Jesus, who died on the cross to do exactly what John said, to take away the sins of the world.  Pilate the Governor, who had the authority to crucify Jesus and torture him, said these three words before all the people. 

 

“Pilate went out again and said to them, “See, I am bringing him out to you that you may know that I find no guilt in him.” So Jesus came out, wearing the crown of thorns and the purple robe. Pilate said to them, “BEHOLD, the man!”  When the chief priests and the officers saw him, they cried out, “Crucify him, crucify him!”” John 19:4-6

 

When Philip heard the word from John the Baptist to Behold Jesus, Then he said later to Nathaniel.  “Come, and see.”  And so, I invite you to Behold Jesus and ask him to transform you, be reborn, and receive forgiveness for your soul that leads to eternal life.  Behold him at Christ Lutheran in Worship and Bible Study, or Look and see him in the Bible for yourself.  He is your Savior from sin and eternal death.  Behold Jesus! Just look!
