When reading the first few chapters of Exodus, you will read about the many different kinds of offerings the Israelites needed to make before the Lord. There was the Burnt Offering, the Grain Offering, the Fellowship Offering, the Sin Offering, and the Guilt Offering. While I didn’t understand the many offerings, I had made a note in the margin of my Bible that read “Hebrews 9:22” (this verse reads, “Without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness”).
Until Jesus came, there needed to be offerings for our forgiveness. But His death on the cross has eliminated the need for anything else. While this image is hard to look at and imagine what Jesus went through on the cross, He was the ultimate offering, washing away all of our sins with His own blood. Because of Jesus, we can rejoice! Because of Jesus, we are free!
