The Sacrifice

Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many.

Hebrews 9:28

Noah and the patriarchs—Abraham, Isaac and Jacob—offered sacrifices to God. One day, God asked Abraham, the father of the faithful, to sacrifice his son, his one and only son, Isaac as a test of faith and obedience. Though God intervened to stop Abraham from actually going through with it, Abraham's willingness to give up his one and only son foreshadowed the role of God the Father, who "so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son" as a sacrifice for our sins (John 3:16).

But that's not all, Isaac, in offering no resistance, was a forerunner, a shadow of the Lord Jesus Christ, who willingly and obediently offered His life's blood for the sins of the world. For your sins and mine.


Genesis 22:1-19.


Merciful Lord God, Thank You for the Lord Jesus, and for all He endured for me on the cross. Amen.
