March 8, 2022 – God’s People Were Prepared
Sermon: 2384 – The Blood Makes a Difference
Pray Over This
“And according to the law almost all things are purified with blood, and without shedding of blood there is no remission.”
Pavlov, the Russian psychologist, did experiments in what we call “conditioned response.” He had his dogs, and he would ring a bell, feed the dogs, ring a bell, feed the dogs, ring a bell, feed the dogs. He conditioned the dogs so that all he had to do was ring a bell and they’d begin to drool. They began to salivate because they knew that the bell meant food. What was God doing in the Old Testament with all the sacrifices, beginning with the skins that clothed Adam and Eve and continuing with Abel’s offering? He was conditioning His people. When they saw the blood, they were reminded repeatedly that sin meant death. Therefore, God’s people were ready for the death of the Lord Jesus Christ upon the cross. For, “without shedding of blood there is no remission.”
Take time in prayer to thank God for the sacrifices of the Old Testament that continually pointed to the ultimate sacrifice of Jesus.
