Hebrews 10:1-4

The law is only a shadow of the good things that are coming—not the realities themselves. For this reason it can never, by the same sacrifices repeated endlessly year after year, make perfect those who draw near to worship.Otherwise, would they not have stopped being offered? For the worshipers would have been cleansed once for all, and would no longer have felt guilty for their sins. But those sacrifices are an annual reminder of sins. It is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins.

One response to “Hebrews 10:1-4

  1. Before Christ, every sacrifice was a reminder of our sin, God’s holiness and wrath, and the need for a perfect sacrifice. The sacrifices had to be repeatedly given because of their imperfection.

    Sacrifice stopped with Christ. He atoned for our sin. He paid our debt and His sacrifice revealed the imperfection of the law and our efforts until God gave a perfect sacrifice.
