We have lost our understanding of “sacrifice” (2077). We sing choruses like the one that says, “We bring a sacrifice of praise” and think we have it. Keep in mind that Proverbs is written before the cross. Because Jesus paid the price for our salvation and we talk about grace, we forget one of the great points that demanded the death on the cross.
(Heb 9:22 KJV) And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.We forget that part of Jesus fulfilling the law was to pay the price for our sin with His sacrifice.
So? When you are having a bad day and are discouraged, take a moment to be grateful for the sacrifice that Jesus paid for your forgiveness. Rejoice in that knowledge. It won’t make the broken leg go away but will give it a different context.
