This is a day to be with family and to celebrate what has been done for us. Jesus came to Earth to be our sacrifice, the lamb of God, and subsequently or redeemer and Savior. We didn’t deserve the gift we were given and there isn’t anything we could do to deserve it. We have a creator that loved us enough to enter into creation and free us from our own stupidity and sinful nature.
Now for those of you who know your animals this is indeed a mountain goat—a kid—not a lamb. Lambs and kids alike were used as sacrifices in ancient times to atone for sins. We attribute “Lamb of God” to Jesus, because that is how John the Baptist referred to him, but the context of this statement was to behold the sacrifice for the sins of the world.
(And I don’t have any good lamb photos. Yet.)
