When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he brought Jesus forth, and sat down in the judgment seat in a place that is called the Pavement, but in the Hebrew, Gabbatha. And it was the preparation of the passover, and about the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your King!
Today’s Morsel: Most Christians spend time each year preparing for the Resurrection Service (what some call Easter), but they forego the Passover Service. The Passover was to commemorate the exit from Egypt. It was a type and shadow of coming out of the world. It was a time to be kept, a time of remembrance of God’s deliverance. It was to be kept and remembered for the rest of their lives, and they were to teach it to their children. Are you teaching your family the importance of the Passover? If we don’t teach them the importance of the Passover, the Resurrection will have little or no meaning. Jesus has brought deliverance, we must teach that to the next generation.
Sing: He brought me out of the miry clay, He set my feet on a Rock to stay. He put a song in my soul today, a song of praise hallelujah!
Thought For Today: You can’t Passover if you don’t keep the Passover. (Parker)
