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.
