The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.
John 1:29.

Thoughts on the Gospel of John (10)
The first chapter of John’s gospel presents many names or titles of Jesus. He is the Word, the light and the only begotten Son of God. Now we get to know Him as the Lamb of God.

For the Jews of that time hardly any symbol was more familiar than that of the lamb. Two lambs were to be sacrificed daily in Israel: one every morning and evening. Of even greater importance was the lamb that had to be killed and eaten at the feast of the Passover. So how surprised the listeners must have been when they heard John exclaim “Behold! The Lamb of God!”

The countless animal sacrifices that were offered up before Christ’s advent could not take away a single sin (Hebrews 10:4). The sinless and spotless Lamb of God, however, takes away the sin of the world! What a far reaching consequence of the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ! The final result will be the removal of every trace of sin from the world, when the first creation has passed away, and a new heaven and a new earth exist (cf. Revelation 21:1).

That will be in the distant future. Now we are contaminated by sin. But everyone can be relieved of his burden of sin and its bondage. This, too, demanded the atoning death of the Lamb of God. “Whoever believes in him will receive remission of sins” and “having been set free from sin … you have … everlasting life” (Acts 10:43; Romans 6:22). But we must be aware of this: although the loving work of Jesus at the cross has tremendous results, only those who personally lay claim to the sacrificial death of the Lamb of God have any share in them.
