Our Passover Lamb

May 1, 2014

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.

Broken Bread Poured Out Wine

1 Peter 1:18-19 AMP
18 You must know (recognize) that you were redeemed (ransomed) from the useless (fruitless) way of living inherited by tradition from [your] forefathers, not with corruptible things [such as] silver and gold, 19 But [you were purchased] with the precious blood of Christ (the Messiah), like that of a [sacrificial] lamb without blemish or spot.

Psalm 36:7 … How precious[03368] is Your lovingkindness[02617]O God!

From NetBible Ps 36:7

  • precious[03368 = priceless, excellent, exquisite, valuable, prized, rare

Therefore the children of men take refuge[put their trust] in the shadow of Your wings.

 

Psalm 63:3,7 … Because [experiencing] Your lovingkindness is better than life, My lips will praise You. … Because you are my help, I sing for joy in the shadow of your wings.

  • lovingkindness[02617] = loyal love, goodness, kindness, faithfulness

    *My lips brim praises like fountains glorifying You!

Broken Bread – No Greater Love
By Karen Holland

A body offered for all
The blood of the perfect Lamb
Broken bread, poured out wine
The Lamb, the Son of God
No greater love than this.

A life lain down
Broken bread, poured out wine.

A living sacrifice
The pearl of greatest price
A life lain down for friends
No greater love than this.

John 15:13Greater love hath no man than this: that a man lay down his life for his friends.

Romans 12:1-2Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
