GOD PROVIDES A LAMB -- LUKE 2:1-20
Dec 15, 2019

After Adam's sin, God made a promise that a Redeemer, one Who would be the Savior of sinners would come. Throughout the Old Testament God's providence worked as this was being brought to pass. Every sacrifice in Israel's worship pointed to the time when the Lamb of God would enter the world and pay the price for mankind's sin. I think of the words of Abraham in Genesis 22:8 when he told Isaac going up the mountain of sacrifice, "My son, God will provide himself a lamb . . . " Our text tells of a time when that promise was fulfilled and reveals how God provided for the entrance of His Lamb into the world. I pray that we will get an understanding of what His birth means for us as we examine 3 aspects of the Lamb's provision in "God Provides A Lamb." We see:

   I. THE PLACE GOD PREPARED -- VV. 1-7.
  II. THE PEOPLE GOD PROVIDED -- VV. 8, 15-19.
 III. THE PRAISE THAT WAS PRESENTED -- VV. 9-14, 20.
