Last Sunday’s talk focused on the cross as a blood sacrifice.
The verb – to sacrifice – is the action of someone giving up something.
The noun – a sacrifice – is the act of giving that something up. It can also mean the thing itself, that which is sacrificed.
With Jesus all these meanings come together.
Jesus offered himself, allowing himself to be sacrificed, and became the ultimate, once-for-all sacrifice.
How then should we live and worship and serve the King?
