Sameach Pesach!  (Happy Passover!)

Sameach Pesach!  (Happy Passover!)

Begins at sunset today – ends on April 30th



Although most of us won’t observe the traditions that our Jewish brothers and sisters will adhere to; we should use this time to focus on some of the benefits that Jesus, our sacrificial lamb has purchased for us.


The overall theme of Passover is redemption. So, most certainly we can appreciate the fact that we have been redeemed.  We can focus on our availability to receive justification, sanctification and reconciliation because of the shed blood of Christ.


 We also should be mindful of our liberation from the bondage of  sin that once held us captive.  Daily we should acknowledge that the blood of Christ permits us to be privy to the victory that we are now experiencing. 


The celebration of Passover also reminds us that our liberation was very costly for Christ.  So, because we have been liberated, we no longer have a valid reason to remain in the bondage of any type.  God, our Father loved us unconditionally and permitted His precious Son to be the propitiation ….just for us.  Therefore, if the enemy is attempting to place restraints on you: spiritually, physically, emotionally, psychologically, or financially…. Just remind him that your freedom has been purchased by the blood of Jesus – your sacrificial lamb.  Remind the enemy that he has no legal right to invade your territory.  (Also make sure that you  have not given him any open doorway of access!)


Let’s use this time to further reflect on the intervention of the death angel  in our lives….because of the blood of Jesus.  Let’s also reflect on the fact that we are no longer bound to or in sin – but free…. And he who the Son has set free is free indeed!
