Passover celebration Feb. 28, 2019
Morning Devotion Message
In the month of February, we took a pause from studying the Commandments of Christ and looked at the lives of strong characters in the book of Genesis. Uncle Brian Styles took us through the story of Isaac who showed the importance of obedience and the lesson of surrounding ourselves with Godly friends. Isaac and Rebekah showed great faith in their marriage, knowing that the most important thing was to marry someone in the Truth, who would help them on their walk to the Kingdom. As we are nearing the time of Passover, uncle Frank Abel has come in to talk about the significance and the background of the Passover. The Israelites were told to make unleavened bread, and in Exodus 12:15, they were also told to “put away leaven out of your houses”. They were to cleanse their house from the ‘leaven’. In Matthew 16:12, it says, “Then understood they how he bade them not beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.” We also need to cleanse the leaven of the world from our lives and our houses, not just one day, but we must be working to keep it out every day of the week. When we cleanse ourselves from the ‘leaven’ of our minds, we need to fill our minds with Godly thoughts so that we do not find our houses filled with more worldly leaven than before as the man in Luke 11:24 - 26. By surrounding ourselves with Godly friends who will help us on our way, we can be strengthened spiritually, and cleanse he leaven from our lives, so that we may, by God’s grace and the sacrifice of His Son, find a place in that eternal life to come.
