Now the feast of unleavened bread drew nigh, which is called the Passover. And the chief priests and scribes sought how they might kill him; for they feared the people. Then entered Satan into Judas surnamed Iscariot, being of the number of the twelve. And he went his way, and communed with the chief priests and captains, how he might betray him unto them. And they were glad, and covenanted to give him money. And he promised, and sought opportunity to betray him unto them in the absence of the multitude. Then came the day of unleavened bread, when the passover must be killed. (Luke 22:1-7)
Today’s Morsel: The Passover, or what many call “Good Friday”, was instituted by God when the children of Israel were preparing to depart from the land of Egypt from bondage and captivity. He told Moses that on that night He would pass over and destroy all the first born living that were not under the blood. It was that last plague by God upon the Egyptians, to set His people free (Exodus 12). And for that reason, it is called “The Passover”. God would only pass over the houses with the blood of the lamb upon them. All others would suffer loss. It was to be a feast forever. Always a reminder to them of what the Lord had done for them. Let me encourage you today, don’t ever forget that Jesus shed His Blood so that you could live. That’s the message you need to obtain about “Good Friday”, The Passover. When you are covered by His blood through baptism, He no longer see your sins.
Sing: When I see the blood! When I see the blood! When I see the blood, I will pass, I will pass, over you.
Thought For Today: His blood still saves.
