Gospel Rewind 03/13/15: Kirk Franklin – Now Behold The Lamb
Artist: Kirk Franklin Track: Now Behold The Lamb Album: The Essential Kirk Franklin
The next day he saw Jesus coming to him and said, “Behold, the Lamb takes away the sin of the world!” (John 1:29, NASB). “The Lamb… will overcome them, because He is the Lord of lords and King of kings, and those who are with Him are the called and chosen and faithful.” (Revelation 17:14, NASB). Now behold the Lamb, the precious Lamb of God, Born into sin that I may live again, the precious Lamb of God. Holy is the Lamb, the precious Lamb of God, Why You love me so Lord I shall never know, the precious Lamb of God.
Earlier this week as I sat thinking, I began to sing “Now Behold The Lamb”. Everything clouding my mind instantly fell away. With every line I heard I felt better and each word sung made me think about just how great my God is. Thank You for the Lamb, the precious Lamb of God, Because of Your grace I can finish this race, the precious Lamb of God… New life can begin for You washed away, washed away every one of my sins, Whom the Son sets free is truly free indeed, I claim You to be the Lamb of God.
There are times when we may never know how He is able to love us sometimes, but may you be able to go in confidence knowing that He does. May you be able to believe, wholeheartedly, that because of the precious Lamb, your race can be finished: it can be won. May this song be a blessing to you this week as it was to me.
