Christ is the ultimate Passover Lamb
Pastor Mark Jeske
The acts of God to set free the Israelite slaves were great indeed. The pharaohs had no limits on their power in northeastern Africa, but with ten mighty blows God broke their economic and military power.
A far greater rescue took place on the Mount of Calvary. Jesus’ blood was spilled out with whips, nails, and a crown of thorns. This is why the annual Passover celebration is no longer necessary. “Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed” (1 Corinthians 5:7). Think of what this means for you: you are forgiven, set free from fear of your trial when you die, given immortality just like Christ’s. Through faith in him you may spatter that blood on the doorway of your heart. That blood is the payment for all of your sins, and that means that the tyrant Satan has lost his grip on you.
Just as the Israelites symbolically got rid of all the yeast in their homes, we can renew our lives in service to our God. Powered by his Spirit we now delight in throwing off old sinful ways and finding new joy in God’s ways. The last and greatest Passover took place on Good Friday and Easter.
Through your faith in Christ, his blood now marks your body and soul. The angel of death has passed over you. Calm down. You are safe.
