Keeping The Passover Service
I Corinthians 5
I Corinthians 11
You can listen to the above listed Bible chapters at http://
The Passover is the most solemn and serious occasion. It is the
anniversary of the death of our lord and savior Jesus Christ. It is held
in memory of His sacrificial death. Jesus Christ's sacrifice was done
for our physical and spiritual healing. It expresses Christ's death
on our behalf. It pictures the suffering and death of Jesus Christ.
It shows God's love for us. It presents victory over sin because of
Christ's sacrifice. The Passover renews our commitment to let Jesus
Christ live His life in us. We are spiritual brethren. Jesus Christ is our
brother. The sacrifice of Jesus Christ is the cost of our relationship
with God. It is an annual reminder of glorious victory over sin.
Note: If you missed the passover services for health reasons, then
take the second passover 30 days later. Numbers 9:11
