DIG for Wednesday the 18th of March…..Jesus is our Passover lamb…..1 Peter 1 v 19

I had the privilege last night of attending a Passover meal organised through Jews for Jesus.

We were taken through the symbolism of the Passover meal, where many things done are pointing to Jesus as Messiah and Saviour.

The original Passover was a clear picture about Jesus Christ.

The blood of a lamb was taken and “painted” on the houses to show that those inside were to live; the angel passed over those houses.

The blood of that lamb was their salvation.

In the same way the blood of Jesus is our salvation.

Jesus was like that lamb, without blemish and without spot as He was sinless (1 Peter 1 v 19).

Jesus was sacrificed as our Passover (1 Corinthians 5 v 17).

As I’ve said before we can learn a lot about New Covenant principles and about Jesus from the Old Testament; this is the case with Passover.

Once we are “in” Jesus we also are safe, we have been saved.

Because of Jesus we have been forgiven and reconciled, and as a gift of grace through faith in Him we have been saved and made righteous.

Once “in” Christ we have life everlasting.

Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that Jesus is my Passover Lamb, He is my sacrifice”.

1 Peter 1 v 19…..But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot
