Friday: Further Study: Christ, our Sacrifice — 3 Comments

  1. Indeed the lesson was inspiring.I also want to thank God for allowing his son Jesus to come an die in my place a shamful death as such.may his blood which he shed on the cross of calvary cleanse n purify me anew.....amen

  2. I think the reason for what God wanted only blood to forgive sins was due the sin is so terrible and bad that deserve death. In order to raise sinners God required a living sacrifice and the living sacrifice needed to be unblemished, perfect, pure so the blood of the lamb symbolized the blood of Jesus which fit perfect the requirements of God.
    On the other hand the pagans copy the sacrifice of God with a different approach. The idols required sacrifices as means of adoration not to forgive sins.

  3. Over time, since the fall, God provided object lessons, examples, guidelines and experience to teach us about the blood and it's part in cleansing and healing us from spiritual illnesses. The depth and breath of the love of God required in giving Christ for our salvation. It will take more than eternity to just begin to learn of God's matchless loving care that provided such a sacrifice.

    This whole idea of sacrifice, the cleansing blood, and the lamb won't make sense at all to those who's spiritual investment is in this world. I picture Christ, Who withheld nothing as He was being offered up. He didn't retreat for safety, dignity, comfort, or His reputation. His very physical body or personal needs He didn't place above His purpose in those real moments. He gave Himself up without defeating or taking revenge on His enemies, not even in subtle ways did He overpower them. Precious Lamb of God, sacrificed for the sins of the world!!

    Lord, there's nothing too precious for me to withhold from You.
