Once For All

Leviticus 1:3 “…he is to offer a male without defect…” (NIV)*

Leviticus 1:4 “…it will be accepted on his behalf to make atonement for him.” (NIV)*


Sin’s price had to be paid

By a male without defect,

Perfect blood sprinkled

Man’s sacrifice, God’s to accept.


He took it on Himself

Paying the once for all price,

No more piecemeal offerings

No more man’s sacrifice.


Jesus became the offering

The male without defect,

Saving blood sprinkled

God’s sacrifice, man’s to accept.

Check out today’s reading, Leviticus 1:1-3:17, for a greater appreciation of the once for all sacrifice of Jesus.
