The Passover Festival


Easter Sunday is right around the corner.

Can you believe it?

One week from today, our family will be celebrating the Passover with friends…a tradition that we have done for years. My husband’s family used to celebrate with a traditional Seder supper, and it has been a blessing for us to set our table and celebrate in the same way our Lord did so many years ago.

Why celebrate the Passover? So many blessings have come from this tradition, but the most important one for me is that it makes me feel so close to our Lord and so much a part of the whole picture of God’s amazing plan. There is a connection to the Seder that weaves our lives in with those celebrating with the same words, in the same way all over the world today….weaves us in with those who celebrated all through the many years of history. There is a sense of awe in the knowledge that God was preparing His people for the coming of Christ as He laid out the specifics of a celebration that would be passed down throughout the ages, as He ushered his people to freedom from slavery.

He would come to us, many years later, to offer the ultimate freedom through Christ…the lamb of God.

Have you thought about celebrating the Passover with your family? Here are some links to ideas, thoughts and recipes. It’s a tradition that will bless your family for years to come and give you an amazing look at how God’s plan for salvation is so perfectly met in the man of Jesus Christ, how His coming was orchestrated and foretold in every moment of history.

  1. Thank you for posting this, Rissaroo. I have for many years wanted to engage our family in the Passover Seder, but have never had the wherewithal to actually do it. I will be researching this some more, thank you. For the reminder, and for the links.:-)

  2. Me, too. This will be our family's first time. Thank you for the information, encouragement and links. Perhaps we can come over, step through your red door, and partake at your home? ;-)Blessings friend!

  3. Shalom! What a blessing it would be to welcome you here, break bread and share a meal. Some day? And I find much peace in the thought that perhaps we will one day eat this meal in Heaven together, and with Christ…didn't He say at the last supper "For I tell you, I will not eat it again until it finds fulfillment in the kingdom of God"? Maybe we'll all get to sit at the table with Him then, celebrate together with no sorrow!

  4. Oh, how Jesus must just beam at you, dear one!You, who celebrates His meal with your family, and then shares it with others so graciously.I'm so excited to share this meal with my family tomorrow night. I have the table set, with a seat for Jesus. He dines with us, too. Bless you, sister.
