When sacrificing an animal according to God’s law, a priest would kill the animal, cut it in pieces, and place it on the altar. Sacrifice was important, but even in the old testament God made it clear that obedience from the heart was much more important.

But Samuel replied: โ€œDoes the Lord delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as much as in obeying the Lord ? To obey is better than sacrifice, and to heed is better than the fat of rams.
~1 Samuel 15:22 NIV

God wants us to offer ourselves, not animals, as loving sacrifices – daily laying aside our own desires to follow Him, putting all our energy and resources at His disposal and trusting Him to guide us. We do this put of gratitude that our sins have been forgiven.

Lord, I surrender my whole life to you. Make me useable and willing to obey you. Amen.
