The Passover Meal and Communion

Description

The Passover meal and the Feast of Unleavened Bread are symbolic meals designed to commemorate the deliverance of Israel out of Egypt, so the people of Israel would never forget what God had done for them.

Exodus 13

All of the firstborn, both man and beast, are consecrated to God.

INSIGHT

The spiritual truths, which God wanted to ensure were never forgotten, are memorialized in a ceremony—often involving a meal. The Passover meal and the Feast of Unleavened Bread are symbolic meals designed to commemorate the deliverance of Israel out of Egypt, so the people of Israel would never forget what God had done for them. The New Testament counterpart is the Lord's Supper, in which we eat a symbolic meal to memorialize the deliverance of the church from sin. When we observe communion, we celebrate a meal which has been observed in unbroken succession for 2,000 years.

PRAYER

Give praise to the Lord for so graciously saving us from the consequences of sin:

Bless the Lord, O my soul!

O Lord my God, You are very great:

You are clothed with honor and majesty,

Who cover Yourself with light as with a garment,

Who stretch out the heavens like a curtain (Psalm 104:1-2).

Now pray this confession to the Lord to keep your life free from sin:

Sing praise to the Lord, you saints of His,

And give thanks at the remembrance of His holy name.

For His anger is but for a moment,

His favor is for life;

Weeping may endure for a night,

But joy comes in the morning (Psalm 30:4-5).

As you agree with God's will, voice your affirmation of His Word:

O Lord, You are the portion of my

inheritance and my cup;

You maintain my lot.

The lines have fallen to me in pleasant places;

Yes, I have a good inheritance (Psalm 16:5-6).

As you make your requests known to the Lord, pray for:

  • Greater wisdom
  • Needs of your immediate family
  • Today's activities

Now offer this prayer of worship to the Lord:

Great is our Lord, and mighty in power;

His understanding is infinite.

The Lord lifts up the humble;

He casts the wicked down to the ground (Psalm 147:5-6).
