The foundation of Here I AM is the Bible - God's self-revelation. We hope to inspire curiosity and conversations about God and faith by exploring what God says about Himself in His Word.

"Where is the Lamb?" is a 40-day Lenten devotion series to help us prepare for Easter. Lent is an opportunity to contemplate what our Lord really did for us on the cross.

Sample Devotion: God Provides

SCRIPTURE

Genesis 22:7-8
Isaac spoke up and said to his father Abraham, "Father?"
"Yes, my son?" Abraham replied.
"The fire and wood are here," Isaac said, "but where is the lamb for the burnt offering?" Abraham answered, "God himself will provide the lamb for the burnt offering, my son." And the two of them went on together.

John 1:29-30
The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, "Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! This is the one I meant when I said, 'A man who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me.'"

Revelation 5:11-12
Then I looked and heard the voice of many angels, numbering thousands upon thousands, and ten thousand times ten thousand. They encircled the throne and the living creatures and the elders. In a loud voice they were saying: "Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise!"

DON'S REFLECTION

After I learned that I was going to be writing a Lenten devotional series, I prayed for inspiration and guidance on the theme. Within a few days, Genesis 22:7-8 showed up in my Bible Study Fellowship (BSF) lesson and I knew immediately that God had provided the theme - "Where is the Lamb?"

That question - where is the lamb? (or some version of that question) - is woven throughout the Bible stories, starting in Genesis and ending in Revelation. And the final answer to the question is: Jesus, the only Son of God. John the Baptist recognized Him immediately as the One who takes away the sin of the world. Slowly others began to recognize who He was. And one day we will all recognize the Lamb of God sitting on His heavenly throne and we will all worship Him. Worthy is the Lamb!

PRAYER

Thank You Lord God for providing the ultimate sacrificial Lamb for us! Thank You Jesus for taking away our sins! Amen
