Passover Meditation #5

When we were slaves, in Egypt and to sin, we could not claim home; and in the absence of home, our hearts are prone to wander. Yet, when we are received in Yeshua/Jesus, He prepares a place for us: a home, a permanent residence, from which we will never be moved (Jn. 14:1-4).

In this we find the beauty of Passover, and the glory of the Lamb, to prepare a home for us as a place of rest, peace, and freedom for a family as diverse as humanity itself:

“And He came and preached peace to you who were afar off and to those who were near. For through Him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father. Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone, in whom the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit” (Eph. 2:17-22).

Be well. Shalom.
