"Look, the lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world" (John 1:29).
Two prodigious realities are here mentioned. Sin, which beclouds and dominates life, explaining why we self-sabotage even our best efforts, accounting for our brokenness. Then, the Lamb--Jesus, the answer to our futility. Sin's hold on us is ruinous, but Christ is mightier and remedial. There is hope and a future for humans.
