This week for our Jewish brothers and sisters is the commemoration of Passover when the Angel of Death passed over the households of God’s chosen people.
The sign for deliverance was the blood of the lamb put on the lintels of their door frame.
It is a festival of freedom calling to mind God’s releasing them from Egyptian bondage.
For Christians, this week is Holy Week taking us from Palm Sunday through Holy Thursday (the Last Supper), Good Friday (the death of Jesus) and finally to Resurrection Sunday, when Jesus rose from the dead.
Christians are saved from worldly bondage and eternal death by the blood of The Lamb, Jesus Christ.
Step back a bit this week from your day to day habits.
Let the blood of The Lamb wash you afresh, protect you, empower you and heal you ‘for such a time as this!’
For it is written:
“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.”
