In the Old Testament, the altar ran red with the continuing sacrifices for the atonement of sin. Exodus and Leviticus share specific details God gave His people for the many different offerings and sacrifices needed. Yet, in the New Testament, we read of a table and a meal that Jesus shared with His close friends the night before He died. The imagery switches from the constant need for a sacrifice to one final death, from rules and regulations to relationships, from an altar to a table, where we can come and eat freely from the tree of life.
Never forget the sacrifice Jesus made, and because of the cross, there’s a place for you at His table. Will you join Him?
