Psalms 40:6-8 WEB Sacrifice and offering you didn’t desire. You have opened my ears. You have not required burnt offering and sin offering. 7 Then I said, “Behold, I have come. It is written about me in the book in the scroll. 8 I delight to do your will, my God. Yes, your law is within my heart.”
Animal sacrifices can never take away sin. My sin needs to be punished by myself or a sinless substitute. The Lord Jesus is that sinless, Passover lamb (1 Corinthians 5:7). The Lord Jesus is that obedient, willing bondservant for us. The Lord Jesus came for us, seeking us, drawing us to Him. Be thankful for His willing love for us.
