At that time, 29 John saw Jesus approaching him and said: "Behold the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world. 30 It is that I said, after me cometh a man which happened in front of me, because he existed before me. 31 I too didn't know him, but if I came baptizing with water, was for him to be manifested to Israel ". 32 and John gave testimony, saying: "I saw the spirit descend as a dove from heaven, and stay on it. Also 33 I didn't know him, but he who sent me to baptize with water said to me, ' he on whom you see the spirit descend and remain, this is the one who baptizes with the Holy Spirit '. 34 I saw and I bear witness: This is the Son of God! "
There are people who make sacrifices hideous in life, people who will walk to places, others that offer various forms of sacrificing his own life. It's not going to sacrifice, is not useless, but I have to tell you that the great sacrifice, firstly, is that offered by Jesus, able to repair our sins. Any sacrifice that we make in this lifetime, is to unite to the sacrifice of Jesus. That is, the sacrifice in the fight against sin. This is the great grace of God do we need each day, the grace to win and fight against sin. So He is the Lamb of God, is free to take, as a matter of fact, the sin in our lives and in the world. "The one about whom you see the spirit descend and remain, this is the one who baptizes with the Holy Spirit" (John 1, 33). The great gift that God gives us to overcome the sins is your spirit that descends upon us, us, purifies us, renews us and gives us the encouragement to be also winners over evil and sin.
