My Faith Looks Up to Thee
In the Word
Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:2
Of the Word
My faith looks up to Thee,
Thou Lamb of Calvary, Savior divine.
Now hear me while I pray; Take all my guilt away;
O let me from this day Be wholly Thine!
The sacrificial lamb in Old Testament times was pure and spotless, and it symbolically bore the sins of the people. New Testament people celebrate the “Lamb of Calvary,” Jesus Christ, the pure and sinless Son of God. On the cross Jesus took all our guilt away. He gives us grace throughout our lives, and promises eternal life to all who believe.
“Blest Savior, then, in love, Fear and distrust remove; O bear me safe above, A ransomed soul!” Thanks be to God who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ!
Walking with my Lord
Jesus, Lamb of Calvary, You became sin to take my sin away. Thank You for Your loving sacrifice on the cross. Through Your Word and Sacraments, help me to look to You in faith and to share the Good News with others. In Your name I pray. Amen.
