A Message from Your Senior Pastor
Christ our Passover has been sacrificed for us;
therefore let us keep the feast,


Alleluia.
Christ our Passover has been sacrificed for us;
therefore let us keep the feast,
Not with the old leaven, the leaven of malice and evil,
but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. Alleluia.
(1 Corinthians 5:7-8)

Christ being raised from the dead will never die again;
death no longer has dominion over him.
The death that he died, he died to sin, once for all;
but the life he lives, he lives to God
So also consider yourself dead to sin,
and alive to God in Jesus Christ our Lord. Alleluia.
(Romans 6:9-11)

Christ has been raised from the dead,
the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep.
For since by a man came death,
by a man has come also the resurrection of the dead.
For as in Adam all die,
so also in Christ shall all be made alive. Alleluia.
(1 Corinthians 15:20-22)

Sisters and Brothers,

The story of the Passover, the night God liberated the Hebrew people from slavery in Egypt, is found in Exodus 12. The Lord tells Moses to command each household to take a lamb, slaughter it, and daub the lintel and two doorposts of their homes with the blood of the lamb.

When the Lord passes through Egypt that night he will see the blood and “pass over” that house, sparing those inside from death.

In the first line of the Pascha Nostrum , Paul connects the story of Christ’s death to the story of the Passover. The blood of Jesus, the Lamb of God, now marks all those who by faith believe in him.

Through Christ’s sacrifice, we are now liberated from the bondage of sin and death. As the free people of God, we can live without fear, without shame, without guilt as we joyously serve God through the love of our neighbors.

Today, as a way of keeping the feast, how can you show your love and gratitude to God through an act of love and service to your neighbors?

Grace & Peace,
