Yes, one mighty and complete sacrifice, and the work was eternally done to the glory and satisfaction of a holy God. What a contrast to the thousands and thousands of sacrifices that were offered in the Old Testament, starting with Abel. “And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the Lord had respect unto Abel and to his offering” (Genesis 4:4), and continuing through the history of the children of Israel. We read, “And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins: But this Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God” (Hebrews 10:11-12).
Let’s thank God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ once again today for that wonderful, all sufficient sacrifice. And not just today, but let’s make it our daily habit to offer our thanks for all that we have because of the finished work of Calvary.
