Bible Verses about Sacrifice - Inspirational and Encouraging

Sacrifice is a theme that runs deep in the Bible, from the Old Testament to the New Testament. In the Old Testament, we see how God commanded His people to make offerings to Him as a way of expressing their devotion and gratitude. But it was not merely the act of giving that God desired; it was the heart behind it. Sacrifice was a way of expressing one's love and obedience to God. We see this even more clearly in the New Testament, where Jesus himself gave the ultimate sacrifice on the cross out of His great love for us. These Bible verses about sacrifice will inspire you to see sacrifice as a beautiful expression of love and obedience to God.
