As I read about the intricate sacrifices that were required to receive forgiveness from God. I came to realize why Jesus was the only one who could ultimately redeem us.
The animals that were used for offerings were all pure and without blemish. We are not without sin, not pure on our own. Without the sacrifice of someone who is pure and without blemish (sin). I could not spend eternity with God. He made a way for me, because he loves me that much. What a humbling thought.
