Thought for the month....

The month of March can be seen as a month of contrasts. The cold windy days of late winter break forth into the warm calm days of spring when new life begins to burst forth all around us. 

There is an old proverb that says,

“March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb”.

In the Bible we read the Lord Jesus is referred to as both a Lion and a Lamb. He has the attributes of a powerful and majestic lion and is described as


"the Lion of the tribe of Judah"

Revelation 5:5

and the innocence of a sacrificial lamb in 1 Peter 1:19 and Isaiah 53:7. When Jesus began his earthly ministry, John the Baptist proclaimed

“Behold, the Lamb of God which taketh away the sin of the world”

John 1:29

John stated Jesus would be the sacrificial lamb who wouldn’t just cover sin but would ultimately take it away.

In Old Testament law the unblemished lamb was sacrificed as a covering for human sin. An innocent lamb would take the place of the one who had sinned, for the penalty for sin was death.

With Jesus Christ, however, the penalty for sin was paid once and for all through His death on the cross. He atoned for sin and now eternal salvation is available to all who believe.

Jesus was the perfect sacrifice, the pure and innocent Lamb.

“Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree”

1 Peter 2:24.

As the Lion He conquered sin and death. 

As the Lamb He was slain so He could be our Saviour. 

We read in the Bible the following:

“The wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” Romans 6:23. 

“For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God”

Romans 3:23.

” Neither is there salvation in any other; for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved”

Acts 4:12.

As we live our lives from day to day through the month of March, with its blusterous times and its tranquil days of early spring, let us take time to consider Jesus Christ as The Lion and as The Lamb. The sacrifice He made when He died on the cross at Calvary enables everyone to have eternal life. Simply ask for forgiveness and put your faith and trust in Him.


You will then have peace knowing your sins are forgiven and you will have a home in heaven one day.
