The Ultimate Sacrifice

What was the ultimate sacrifice? Well, just think... In Hebrews, all the Israelites had to offer up sacrifices, but not just once, they had to do it a lot! Heb.10:4 "For it is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sin." This wasn't enough guys, we needed Jesus to die on the cross! The sacrifices just covered the sin.

Heb. 10:10 "By this we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once and for all!"
~That's Awesome! Do I hear an amen?

When Jesus came into the world, He took all the sin onto Himself. This was the "Ultimate Sacrifice" that satisfied the justice of God. God is just (if He wasn't, He wouldn't be God). He will not let the evil go unpunished. But when Christ died, He took all our sin, so that we are made righteous in the sight of God! (Justification). So if Jesus didn't die on the cross, we'd either be dead in hell... or still making sacrifices!:)

All for the glory of God,
