20 Bible Verses About Sacrifices
Today we will be dealing with 20 bible verses about sacrifices.
Jesus sacrificed Himself for us so that we can live a beautiful and a happy life . It shows how important we are to Him. Our duty as Christians is to love God and also fulfill the bible which says we should preach the gospel which is the good news to all mankind who are not saved yet so that many of us will enjoy the abundant grace God has sacrificed Himself to give to us . Jesus love for us is unconditional. He has always loved us even before we met and know Him. As Christians our main purpose is to love and serve Him.
The service we render must be acceptable before Him. God said when we pray we shouldn’t pray as the heathens do , they pray in public so they can be seen and pitied. Our way of sacrificing ourselves to God is obeying Him, listening to Him, loving Him, and reading His words. Jesus should be our priority.
The bible says seek ye first the kingdom of God and every other things shall be added unto us, meaning you get everything you want easily and freely without stressing by giving yourself completely and wholeheartedly to God.
1. Romans 12:1-2
I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
2. 1 Peter 2:4-10
As you come to him, a living stone rejected by men but in the sight of God chosen and precious, you yourselves like living stones are being built up as a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. For it stands in Scripture: “Behold, I am laying in Zion a stone, a cornerstone chosen and precious, and whoever believes in him will not be put to shame.” So the honor is for you who believe, but for those who do not believe, “The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone,” and “A stone of stumbling, and a rock of offense.” They stumble because they disobey the word, as they were destined to do.
3. Hebrews 10:1-10
For since the law has but a shadow of the good things to come instead of the true form of these realities, it can never, by the same sacrifices that are continually offered every year, make perfect those who draw near. Otherwise, would they not have ceased to be offered, since the worshipers, having once been cleansed, would no longer have any consciousness of sins? But in these sacrifices there is a reminder of sins every year. For it is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins. Consequently, when Christ came into the world, he said, “Sacrifices and offerings you have not desired, but a body have you prepared for me.
4. 1 Corinthians 11:23-26
For I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night when he was betrayed took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, “This is my body which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way also he took the cup, after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.” For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.
5. Genesis 8:20-21
Then Noah built an altar to the Lord and took some of every clean animal and some of every clean bird and offered burnt offerings on the altar. And when the Lord smelled the pleasing aroma, the Lord said in his heart, “I will never again curse the ground because of man, for the intention of man’s heart is evil from his youth. Neither will I ever again strike down every living creature as I have done.
6. Philippians 2:5-8
Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.
7. Daniel 9:27

8. Hebrews 10:11-14
And every priest stands daily at his service, offering repeatedly the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins.

For by a single offering he has perfected for all time those who are being sanctified.
