Old Testament sacrifices involved the blood of bulls, goats and calves. They had to repeat each sacrifice again and again because the people were constantly sinning.
When Jesus died on the cross He changed everything. Jesus ushered in the New Covenant. Because Jesus was the perfect lamb and willingly sacrificed himself, He was able to fight the battle of sin and victoriously entered the most holy place. In this way, he has freed us from the slavery of sin forever. He was the ultimate sacrifice that secured our redemption forever.
Now we no longer have to sacrifice animals to be in God's presence, Jesus' blood cleanses our hearts. Now, we can have a clean conscience, we are free of death's sting. We can live to serve God and we are freed from sin's power.
Hallelujah! Praise God!
Thank you for sending your son to obtain victory over sin and redeem us forever so we may be in your presence, live guilt free and serve You!
