Mary and Joseph took Jesus up to Jerusalem to offer sacrifices for the birth of a son, as they were instructed to do so by the Jewish Law. They made their sacrifices for the one who would become the ultimate sacrifice. For the one who freely gave up everything to be a sacrifice for any who would put their faith in Him. He came to pay the price so that we, who don’t have the ability to pay, have no more any price to pay. He risked everything for us, gave up everything for us, sacrificed His life for us – what will we sacrifice, in thankfulness, for Him?
