A Sacrifice of Grace

March 3rd, 2023

Hebrews 10:1-10

Sacrifices, often, are a sign of love for another. George Bailey in the popular film “It’s a Wonderful Life” sacrificed his dreams, plans, and future to care for his family and community. To give up part of yourself for the sake of another is what defines sacrifice.

For many years the people of God offered animals to God in sacrifice to signify their loyalty to God. While these sacrifices happened often, the sacrifice that God made through His Son Jesus Christ in His life, death, and resurrection was the greatest sacrifice of all, and was needed only once. It is because of this sacrifice that the people of God are now free to be in relationship with God and to find God’s presence anywhere.

The only response then, to this great sacrifice, is to live in gratefulness for the grace of God—denying ourselves daily, taking up our own cross, and laying down our life for the lives for those around us.
