Continuing from last week.

1 John 4:10  This is love:  not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning
sacrifice for our sins.

Jesus was the final sacrifice, the final shedding of blood, the final atonement for the death that was
due sinful man.  

Never again do the high priests go through the curtain into the Most Holy Place to sprinkle animal blood on the
Arc of the Covenant.  This was punctuated just before Jesus died.  The curtain separating the Holy Place from the
Most Holy Place was miraculously torn in two.

Mathew 27:51  At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from the top to bottom.

Mark 15:38  The curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom.

Luke 23:45  And the curtain of the temple was torn in two.  Jesus called out with a loud voice, “Father, into your
hands I commit my spirit.”

But after Jesus died on the cross and took the penalty for the sins of the world, some people still 
aren’t saved.  Why?  The reason is because the sacrificial death of Jesus, like the animal sacrifice, 
was symbolic.  It was a symbolic atonement for the death that was due sinful man.  

It isn’t the sacrifice that saves a person but your belief or faith in Jesus that saves you.  Just like 
before Jesus was born, it is ones belief in God that actually brings salvation.

Don’t get me wrong, Jesus is still part of the Trinity, still holy and still God, but there is something 
else that happens when a person believes or has faith in Jesus.

Next week we will go deeper in depth as to what Jesus actually took on the cross.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.
