Today you should read: Hebrews 10:1-18
“God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning—the sixth day.” Genesis 1:31
Before sin entered into the world all of what God had made was seen as good. Once sin entered into the world nothing was good any longer and no sacrifice could fix what sin caused. The sacrifices of animals was only a foreshadowing of the sacrifice that was going to be required to make everything right before the Lord. We needed a messiah or a new Adam to start things over and make things new.
That leads us to Christ.
And by that will, we have been made holy through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. (v.10)
Jesus, much like God in Genesis, demonstrates that his sacrifice was sufficient and good by sitting down at the right hand of God. His sacrifice is what we can trust in for our salvation and no sacrifice of bulls, obedience, church attendance, quite time or service can ever replace the gospel. God does not want your sacrifice he wants your worship.
