Our Passover Lamb

1 Peter 1:18-19, 22-23 NLT … For you know that God paid a ransom to save you from the empty life you inherited from your ancestors. And the ransom He paid was not mere gold or silver. 19 It was the precious blood of Christ, the sinless, spotless Lamb of God. …
… 22 You were cleansed from your sins when you obeyed the truth{through the Holy Spirit}, so now you must show sincere love to each other as brothers and sisters. Love each other deeply with all your heart. 23 For you have been born again{spiritually transformed, renewed, and set apart for His purpose}, but not to a life that will quickly end. Your new life will last forever because it comes from the eternal, living word of God.

1 Corinthians 5:7 NLT … Christ, our Passover Lamb, has been sacrificed for us.

Christ, our spotless Passover Lamb is pure and holy. The ransom paid by His precious blood!
.
The Lord’s goal in giving us His Word is not to restrict or cramp our style, but to make us pure and holy. By obediently applying His word to our lives through the Holy Spirit we are transformed to become more and more like Jesus.

Isaiah 53:5 NKJV … He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed.

    From Heartlight

    John 17:16-17 AMP … They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. 17 Sanctify them in the truth [set them apart for Your purposes, make them holy]; Your word is truth.

    God’s Word is truth. His goal in giving us his Word, his truth, is not to limit us or restrict us, but to make us pure and holy. We live in the center of God’s intention when we open our hearts to his Word and apply that word to our lives through obedience. God’s Spirit is at work to transform us into people who are pure and holy—people who are more like Jesus.

    Prayer:
    Holy God, my loving Father, mold me to be more what you want me to be as I open my heart to your truth and ask that your Spirit transform my will, my actions, and my character. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
