The Lamb Provided | Luke 2:8-14 | J. Allen Mashburn
We have been watching as God’s plan to send His Lamb into the world has unfolded. When man fell into sin in the Garden of Eden, God made a promise that a Redeemer would one day come. This Redeemer would come as the Savior of sinners. All through the Old Testament, God worked to bring this event to pass. Every sacrifice, every ritual of Jewish worship, every thing God did was moving steadily toward the moment when the Lamb of God would enter this world and pay the price to save men from their sins.
I think of one occasion when a broken hearted father named Abraham walked up a mountain side with his only son Isaac. He was taking that son to the top of that mountain to offer him to the Lord as a burnt offering. On the way up that mountain, Isaac asked his father Abraham about what they were doing.
Here is what was said that day: “And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering, and laid it upon Isaac his son; and he took the fire in his hand, and a knife; and they went both of them together. And Isaac spake unto Abraham his father, and said, My father: and he said, Here am I, my son. And he said, Behold the fire and the wood: but where is the lamb for a burnt offering? And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering: so they went both of them together,” Genesis 22:6-8
Our text tells us about the night that father’s promise was fulfilled. It was also the moment when God’s promise to send His Redeemer into the world was fulfilled. As we look in on the events of that special night 2,000 years ago, we can learn something about how God provided His Lamb.
