When one reads the book of Leviticus we realize the importance of sacrifice within the Mosaic System. It was an essential part of this covenant. The Hebrew writer shows us that animal sacrifices are no longer needed for sin. Jesus has become our “once for all” sin offering. He was the “better” sacrifice.
However, just because animal sacrifice is no longer needed, the Hebrew writer does encourage us to offer sacrifices to God. In fact he gives three at the end of the book:
1. Confession of His Name.
2. Doing Good
3. Sharing with others.
Today lets make those three areas our goals. Lets confess the name of God in words and actions. Lets do good to those who are around us. Lets share what we have with others. In doing so we will offer sacrifice to God (Hebrews 13:15, 16).
