Full Definition of PASSOVER

 :  a Jewish holiday beginning on the 14th of Nisan and commemorating the Hebrews' liberation from slavery in Egypt;  the exemption of the Israelites from the slaughter of the firstborn in Egypt  (Exodus 12)

Jesus, You are our PASSOVER LAMB!   In Exodus, God had a plan to set His people free from the slavery of the Egyptians.  The Jews were instructed to put the blood of an UNBLEMISHED LAMB on the lintel and doorpost of their household.    When God PASSED OVER,  He would see the blood and He would spare every household that had blood on the lintel and doorpost.  However, every Egyptian's home that did not have the blood of the PASSOVER LAMB on their doorpost would lose their first born.  (Exodus 11 - 13)   The Israelites were set free by the blood of the PASSOVER LAMB - just as I am set free by the sacrifice of Jesus, my PASSOVER LAMB.   If I believe in what He did for me - His blood covers me and I will be set free and live forever with Him.  It has NOTHING to do with what I have done - or have earned - it is all about the PASSOVER LAMB who was slain for my sins.   The PASSOVER LAMB in Exodus points to the truth of You, Jesus, as our PASSOVER LAMB at the crucifixion.  The truth that You would come to earth to be the sacrificial PASSOVER LAMB for me is more than I can bear.   Jesus, I bow before You and worship You with my life  - You are my PASSOVER LAMB!!
