Sacrifice

SACRIFICE

As I awake each morning
My first thoughts are of you
I am so filled with gratitude
So much I want to do

You proved how much You loved me
A sacrifice so huge
The one thing I can give thee
My life in gratitude

A life so full of flaws and sin
And yet You paid the price
The gift I have living within
Your Son You sacrificed

The Holy Spirit in me
You shed your blood, You set it free
Your sacrifice was not in vain
I live to glorify your name

No power on earth could keep You down
Jesus Christ, My Lord and Savior
Crucified and Risen!

The Bible says “The law is only a shadow
of the good things that are coming not the
realities themselves—it is impossible for
the blood of bull and goats to take away sins”

Animal sacrifices were a foreshadowing of
our savior, Jesus, who was going to come
as a human, having all my same weaknesses
and temptations, yet He never sinned.

The sacrifice had to be sinless. Only He,
as the Lamb of God, could save me.

He was whipped, He was crucified. He could
have stopped it at anytime. He was human.
He felt every lash, every nail, just like
I would have.

He became the mediator between God and man,
His sacrifice offered once and for all
never to be repeated.

Because of Jesus’ sacrifice, He lives within
me. When I invited Him into my life. it
changed me. I am found not guilty.

When I stand before God, in judgment
I have an advocate.

Hebrews 9:12 ESV
He entered once for all into the holy places,
not by means of the blood of goats and calves
but by means of His own blood, thus securing
an eternal redemption
