God originally commanded Israel to observe the Day of Atonement every year. But with Jesus’ coming and His sacrifice, the Day of Atonement has been rendered obsolete. It is obsolete because Jesus, our High Priest, gave Himself on the cross of Calvary. He alone atoned for the sin of the world. This ushered in a new way of relating with God. No longer would worship only be “skin deep.” Now God would inhabit the hearts of those who put their trust in His Son.
