The Sacrifice Mystery

7 Aug

The Sacrifice Mystery…

Every day in the Temple of Jerusalem, priests offered up the morning sacrifice at about 9 o’clock. Interesting because Jesus is the fulfillment of all sacrifices.

He was offered up at the third hour – 9 o’clock, when the morning sacrifice was being offered. The evening sacrifice was offered up in the afternoon about 3 o’clock.

Jesus’s sacrifice finished in the 9th hour when the evening sacrifice was offered. Just as the morning sacrifice was offered up every day, so Jesus’s sacrifice covers every morning of your life.

His mercies are new every morning. As the evening sacrifice was offered up every night, so Jesus’s sacrifice is good for every night. In your times of darkness, His faithfulness will cover you. As His sacrifice spanned the hours connecting the two, Jesus’s sacrifice is good for all the time in between, every moment of your life.

Every morning give Him praise and every night give Him thanks. In between, live your life as your offering of love to Him.

For Christ did not enter a sanctuary made with human hands that was only a copy of the true one; he entered heaven itself, now to appear for us in God’s presence. Nor did he enter heaven to offer himself again and again, the way the high priest enters the Most Holy Place every year with blood that is not his own. Otherwise Christ would have had to suffer many times since the creation of the world. But he has appeared once for all at the culmination of the ages to do away with sin by the sacrifice of himself. Just as people are destined to die once, and after that to face judgment, so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him. Hebrews 9:24-28

Start your day praising Jesus and remain in His holy presence throughout the day. Let His love shine through you wherever you are.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
