Remember This Day
Then Moses said to the people, “Remember this day in which you came out from Egypt, out of the house of slavery, for by a strong hand the Lord brought you out from this place. No leavened bread shall be eaten.
Out Of Bondage
Before God delivered His people out of Egypt they were living in bondage. They were severely worked hard and abused. We call it slavery today. But they weren’t always in bondage. Moses was the man who God chose to deliver the people from out of bondage.
Egypt represents the life of bondage that we once lived in before we were delivered from our bondage of sin. Before we were delivered from our bondage of sin we were trapped. Sin would not let go of us. Then God sent Jesus to come and deliver us from our sins. No longer do you live in chains and shackles. You have been set free by the person of Jesus Christ.
Jesus tells us to remember what He did for you s on the cross. If you have participated in the Lord’s supper then you have meditated upon the works of Jesus. His body is our bread of life that was broken. It was His blood that was poured out for the remission of sin. It was His death that gave us victory over sin. We celebrate because we are forgiven. We must always remember what Jesus did on our behalf. When Jesus was dying on the cross, He was thinking of you. As the children of Israel were commanded to set a day aside to remember what God did for them, we too as Christians are always to remember what Jesus did for us. If we keep our eyes on Jesus and our mind on His Word, our lives will be a living example of what we believe.
Lord, open my eyes and ears so that I may fill my heart and mind with Your love.
