Enjoying The Thanksgiving Lamb

Lots of people like to have turkey on Thanksgiving. I’ve decided to focus on the Thanksgiving Lamb.

If you offer an animal from the flock as a fellowship offering to the Lord, you are to offer a male or female without defect. If you offer a lamb, you are to present it before the Lord. (Leviticus 3:6-7.)

Along with their fellowship offering of thanksgiving they are to present an offering with thick loaves of bread made with yeast. … The meat of their fellowship offering of thanksgiving must be eaten on the day it is offered; they must leave none of it till morning. (Leviticus 7:13, 15.)

Lambs as offerings of thanksgiving. Have you ever considered what this means for Thanksgiving Day? Have you considered what this means for your life in Jesus?

Jesus is the one Isaiah spoke of when he said:

… he was led like a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is silent, so he did not open his mouth. (Isaiah 53:7.)

Jesus is the one John the Baptist spoke of when he said:

Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! (John 1:29.)

Jesus is the one John the Apostle wrote of when he recorded the heavenly choir singing;

Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise! (Revelation 5:12.)

Jesus is the one the writer of Hebrews spoke of when he said:

We have been made holy through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. (Hebrews 10:10.)

We have much to be thankful for in Jesus, the Lamb who was slain, the offering that never needs repeating.

This Thanksgiving I give thanks for the Lamb.
