The Lamb Home

17 Mar

The Lamb Home…

There was a day ordained in the Hebrew Scriptures, in Exodus 12, on which every Hebrew family was commanded to take a lamb home.

Now it was on this very same day, when Jewish people were taking the Passover lambs to their houses, that Jesus was received into Jerusalem with Palm Branches and Hosanna – Palm Sunday. Further, the Exodus 12 command “Take the Lamb” can also be translated as “Receive the Lamb,” “Accept the Lamb.”

This is amazing stuff. Redemption comes when you receive the Lamb, when you bring Him home, when you bring Jesus to the place you really live. We keep Him at church, in worship, and in fellowship.

We never really bring Him to our marriage, to our relationships with our children and parents, the place we really live our lives. Do you really want the joy and blessings of salvation?

Then bring the Lamb home – let His salvation have its way in the place you really live – in ALL the rooms/closets of your life. Open up those long locked doors and welcome Him in – for that is what Palm Sunday is really all about.

As they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage on the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two disciples, saying to them, “Go to the village ahead of you, and at once you will find a donkey tied there, with her colt by her. Untie them and bring them to me. If anyone says anything to you, say that the Lord needs them, and he will send them right away.”

This took place to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet:

“Say to Daughter Zion,
 ‘See, your king comes to you,
gentle and riding on a donkey,
and on a colt, the foal of a donkey.’”

The disciples went and did as Jesus had instructed them. They brought the donkey and the colt and placed their cloaks on them for Jesus to sit on. A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, while others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. The crowds that went ahead of him and those that followed shouted,

“Hosanna to the Son of David!”

“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”

“Hosanna in the highest heaven!”

When Jesus entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred and asked, “Who is this?” The crowds answered, “This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee.” Matthew 21:1-11

Today focus on bringing Jesus into every part of your life – especially those areas you haven’t let Him touch before.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
