The First Sacrifice

160417 -DDS
Dominic De Souza

The first death in the Bible is the death of an animal killed by God to clothe naked sinners. Having lost their covering of God’s glory when they disobeyed God, Adam and Eve tried in vain to cover their nakedness by sewing fig leaves together. But nothing they did could ease their fear and shame; yet God in His love and grace provided blood-soaked tunics for these two unworthy sinners. This sermon reminds us that without Christ’s blood we are naked in our sin, naked of righteousness and worthy of judgement. Your eyes will be opened to the power of Christ’s work of substitutionary atonement on the cross; this means that our sin can be covered and we can be connected to God in relationship once again because we are now clothed in Christ’s garment of righteousness.
