This morning’s message may not have been the most exciting, no matter how hard I tried to find illustrations to spice it up, it’s awful hard to tell stories demonstrating the difference between burnt and peace offerings!
However, seeing the system of sacrifices and how annoying it all was, even boring to read through, it shows us just how great things are when Christ takes care of it. I am grateful all the time that one of my functions as pastor is not to have to slaughter animals!
I am also grateful because under the Law I would not be allowed to be a priest/pastor. Being legally blind would have disqualified me from service. What a huge difference Christ ending the Law makes for us all! Thank the Lord that every message in church is not, and does not have to be about sacrifices!
