Today’s reading is Exodus 11-12.
In the Passover, Israel remembers when God killed the firstborn of Pharaoh and his people in order to deliver them from Egypt. In the Lord’s Supper, we remember when God allowed His Firstborn to die in order to deliver us from sin. Remember that this Sunday as you partake of the Supper and remember exactly how far the Father is willing to go to deliver us. Praise the Lord!
Tomorrow’s reading is Exodus 13-14.
A Word for Our Kids
Hey kids, every year after the events in today’s reading, the Israelites ate a meal to remember this deliverance. One reason they did so was to prompt the children to ask what it was all about. That gave the parents opportunity to tell the story of God’s deliverance of Israel from Egypt. In like manner, every week we participate in the Lord’s Supper. We take of unleavened bread and fruit of the vine. One reason we do that is so you will ask your parents what it is all about. That will give your parents opportunity to tell the story of God’s deliverance of them from sin. Why don’t you ask them about it sometime?
