Sacrifice

Updated: Mar 1, 2023

For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. 2 Corinthians 5:21 NKJV


Merriam-Webster defines the word sacrifice as destruction or surrender of something for the sake of something else. We have entered the Lenten season, a time of sacrifice and remembrance. The words of Isaac Watts come to mind, “When I survey the wondrous cross on which the Prince of glory died, my richest gain I count but loss, and pour contempt on all my pride”. How great a sacrifice when we reflect on the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.

  • God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement,[i] through the shedding of his blood—to be received by faith. He did this to demonstrate his righteousness, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished. Romans 3:25 NIV

  • And walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. Ephesians 5:2 NIV

  • He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world. 1 John 2:2 NIV

I think there are some questions we must wrestle with in relation of the sacrifice: What does the sacrifice mean to us? What are we called to sacrifice today? How do we honor the Savior’s sacrifice today and beyond?

We must listen out for God’s instructions on what our sacrifices need to be!

Amen! It's very important to hear then move, so often we move before hearing.
