Freedom's Never Free
I was reading in Genesis yesterday morning about the first sacrifice that took place. Most people know the story of Adam and Eve eating the forbidden fruit and hiding in the garden, suddenly ashamed that they were naked. Then God spoke with them and made garments of skin to cover them. Where do you think that skin came from? The first animal sacrifice. Blood was shed to cover over their sin. And many years later, blood was shed to cover over our sin as well and offer us freedom.
This is an older song, but very appropriate for where my thoughts are taking me today...
