Last night I told the children I was teaching that Jesus never sinned. One boy who often interrupts and tries to be difficult yelled out "Jesus did sin! I saw in the movie, when he knocked over the tables [in the temple]". We briefly explained to him that that was not a sin, and that when we hate something that God hates that is not a sin. But if my student had been right, though, that Jesus did sin, then our faith in Jesus would be meaningless because he would have his own sin to die for and would not be able to die for our sin. How important it is that we study the Word and be certain & clearly communicate that truly Christ was a Lamb without blemish.

examine my Messiah
find you in Him any blot?
for to be my substitution
on Him can there be no spot

take home that living Lamb
let him live a while within
see if on that herd-found male
you find the mark of sin

has no spot been found?
therein lies our own joy
for in the death of one last Lamb
we're saved from sin's dark ploy


"...on the tenth day of this month each man is to take a lamb for his family, one for each household...The animals you choose must be year-old males without defect...Take care of them until the fourteenth day of the month, when all the people of the community of Israel must slaughter them at twilight." (Ex. 12:3, 5-6)
