A statue of a stone lamb!
“Christ, our Passover Lamb, has been sacrificed for us!” 1 Corinthians 5:7
On a little church in Germany stands a statue of a stone lamb, which has an interesting history. When some workmen were engaged on the roof of the building, one of them fell to the ground. His companions hastened down, expecting to find him dead. They were amazed, however, to see him unhurt. A lamb had been grazing just where he struck the ground, and falling upon it, the little creature was crushed to death, while the man himself escaped injury. He was so grateful for this wonderful deliverance, that he had a statue of the lamb carved in stone, and placed on the building as a memorial. The lamb saved his life, by dying in his place.
In the same way, every saved soul can point to the Lamb of God, and say, “I am saved–because Jesus died in my stead!”
How do we witness our gratitude and love?
“The Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me!” Galatians 2:20
“Worthy is the Lamb who was slain–to receive power and riches and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and blessing!” Revelation 5:12
