Reasons for Worship, Remembering Deliverance
In the Old Testament the Passover meal was created to remember the deliverance of Israel out of Egypt. In Exodus we find:
That you shall say, 'It is a Passover sacrifice to the LORD who passed over the houses of the sons of Israel in Egypt when He smote the Egyptians, but spared our homes.'" And the people bowed low and worshiped.
In the New Testament the Passover meal was replaced by the Lord's Table with its bread and wine. That red wine and bread is representative of what Jesus did for us on the cross and will do in his soon return. We participate in the Lord's Table until He comes. Then the symbol will give way to the reality. As worshipers of God, central to everything for us is the astonishing deliverance on the cross and the expected deliverance of Christ’s return. As we delight in worship the deliverance of Christ should be the basis of all that we do, and as we view the future His soon return should be the anticipation of our hearts.
