Andrew and Philip

Of all the things we can call Him, this was the title that we embraced.
The Lamb of God.

This was the name that compelled us to leave the one we previously followed in order to follow Him.
The Lamb of God.

We could not understand the full significance of this title until several years later. Still, we were gripped.
The Lamb of God.

Spotless. Sacrificial. Substitutionary.
The Lamb of God.

Our teacher taught us about God’s righteousness. The Teacher brought us God’s righteousness.
The Lamb of God.

We did not simply need someone to show us the way we should go. We needed someone to save us from the way we were going.
The Lamb of God.

This was too amazing to keep to ourselves. We had to share Him with those we loved.
The Lamb of God.

I had to tell my brother.
I had to tell my friend.
We have seen Him. Come see Him for yourself.
The Lamb of God.

As usual, my brother was enthusiastic. Excited.
As usual my friend was contemplative. Doubtful.
He gave my brother a new name. A name I didn’t think fit.
My friend gave Him new names. Names I knew fit. Rabbi. The Son of God. The King of Israel. But for us, the name that changed everything was this.
The Lamb of God.
