Remarkably, that post led to a phone call; our lamb had been spotted! He had wandered more than five miles in the opposite direction of our farm, was now fleabitten and starving, but he was alive.
It was incredible, but the very best part of the story was yet to come. When we opened the gate, the little lamb immediately ran to his mama. And as he nursed for the first time in more than two days, his little tail wagged at super speed. What was lost had now been found.
Of course, the lost lamb is a picture of a bigger, more significant drama. God used it to remind me of the wonder of the gospel. We all went astray like sheep; we all have turned to our own way Isaiah Our lamb ran away from all that was good for him. He chose to rebel against the safety of the sheep pen in favor of a life of hardship, sickness, and uncertainty.
Just like the prodigal son Jesus described in Luke chapter 15, the lamb bolted from the source of tender care, only to wallow about in self-imposed misfortune. We desperately wanted him to come home.
When he did, I was reminded that Jesus pursued me when I was still running away from Him in glad rebellion, in spite of the fact that I was running toward my own destruction. Guilty, helpless, lost were we; blameless Lamb of God was He, sacrificed to set us free: Hallelujah, what a Savior! I am pro ne to spiritual amnesia.
Jesus made a way for me to come home and then came looking for me to show me the path back. What a Savior! Text and Tune: Philip P.

Time for me to get to work! Been through a very deep valley in the last 6 months. Trying to manage it all…. Isaiah 53 tells us Jesus is the servant of the Lord who was, in every way, ordinary in appearance.
His birth was like a root out of dry ground—unnoticed by almost everyone. He had no beauty that would draw people to Him. He would not walk an easy road. His life would be filled with sorrow. He would be despised vv. Yes, people caused Him great suffering in His last days, but they were not the ones to crush Him. God was the One who did that.
Jesus was wounded for our transgressions. He was crushed for our iniquities.
And the punishment that would bring us peace was laid upon Him vv. Guilty, helpless, lost were we; blameless Lamb of God was He, sacrificed to set us free: Hallelujah, what a Savior! You May Also Like. Rejoice, He Is Alive!
