Why a lamb? As a shepherd on Skyemoor Farm, I have to ask why God chose sheep. And how could Jesus be both a Shepherd and the Lamb of God?
When my youngest daughter Julia was a toddler, she pointed to one lambie and said, “Mommy, that one doesn’t have its price tag!” I laughed, because none of them had a “price tag” they had an ear tag, marked with a number. But it made me think….
Jesus, the perfect Lamb of God, had a huge price tag on Him. God’s Son, our Good Shepherd, came down to earth to become a sheep like us so He could take the penalty for the sins of the flock. No one could ever determine the value of saving all believers for all eternity. There is no ear tag price to represent the cost of His sacrifice.
Jesus is………. the pricetag.
