Today's Reading: Exodus 12

Key Verse: Exodus 12:14

So this day shall be to you a memorial; and you shall keep it as a feast to the Lord throughout your generations. You shall keep it as a feast by an everlasting ordinance.

Be sure to tell the next generations that Christ is our Passover Lamb (1 Cor. 5:7). Choose that time with the children carefully. Repeat the story in a variety of ways over and over. Ask God for creativity in the way you do it. Christ was without defect. The lamb was consumed by fire. Christ took the "fire" in suffering. Not a bone was to be broken. The blood of the sacrifice was applied to the mercy seat.

Keeping this "ordinance" (an order) was absolutely essential. Please go to for a more detailed look at the Passover. This was the day Jesus was crucified.


Lord Jesus, we believe You were sacrificed as our Passover Lamb. We believe that Your blood was shed for us. We apply, by faith, Your blood to the doorposts of our household for salvation and protection. We can only say "thanks" by giving our life to You. We have a brand new life because of Your precious blood. It's all through You, Christ Jesus, Amen!
