Jesus as our Sacrifice

We had a visiting preacher come through our church a while back. Awesome preacher, but honestly cant remember what he preached about although I'm sure it was good. I do however remember well a little nugget he just briefly talked about before he started his message.

He said that in the Old Testament the person who brought sacrificial offerings to be burned before the Lord were not scrutinized or inspected, the actual animal was. The animal had to be clean, without blemish, young, spotless. The person who actually presented the offering to the Lord only need have faith and obedience. Brings tears to my eyes just writing that!! Makes me so thankful! Jesus Christ is our sacrifice. All we have to do is believe and obey!!

1Peter 2:5 you yourselves, as living stones, are built up as a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood and to offer spiritual sacrifices that are acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.


  1. That's a beautiful revelation! Glad to see you are blogging again :o) Will be back often.

    God bless

    PS. Hope things are going well with the soon-to-arrive baby!

  2. Hi, all this while i been seeing that Christ offered Himself up as a sacrifice for our sins but never see it like what you said. We are the one presented Christ as a sacrifice to Go. Hallelujah! Praise God and thank you.
