Messiah, Our Passover
"Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation." 1 Corinthians 5:7
Scripture Focus: Leviticus 23:4-5; 1 Corinthians 5:6-8
The first of seven "appointed" annual Feast days given by the LORD to Israel was the Passover. But it wasn't all about the food. This was about history - the mighty God of Israel delivering His people from slavery and bondage in a foreign land.
On occasions our family would retell the story of how "the LORD brought the Israelites out of Egypt" (Exodus 12:51), I always wondered why it was the blood of a lamb "on the sides and tops of the door frames of the houses" which saved God's people from certain death. They were saved by the blood of the lamb.
God's people are still saved by the blood of the Lamb today! One day John the Baptizer saw Jesus coming toward him and said, "Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world" (John 1:29). Jesus is our true Passover Lamb!
Insight: There is a fountain filled with blood drawn from Emmanuel's veins. and sinners plunged beneath that flood lose all their guilty stains. (William Cowper, 1772)
