We just watched one of our favorite movies, Cecil B. DeMille’s film classic, The Ten Commandments. Despite its epic budget, elaborate sets, and cast of thousands, it still comes short of capturing the truly incredible event of the first Passover in Egypt.
The entire Passover event was a foreshadowing of the future sacrifice of the true Lamb of God, Jesus Christ. Because of His shed blood on the cross, God now “passes over” our sins and spares us the penalty of the second death. As a family, our hope is in the blood of Christ made as a sacrifice to cover our sins. It’s our daily prayer that the shed blood of Christ will cover our home and family. Like the ancient Israelites, we are forever grateful that a Lamb’s blood has given us life when we deserve death.
“The blood will be a sign for you on the houses where you are; and when I see the blood, I will pass over you. No destructive plague will touch you when I strike Egypt.” Exodus 12:13
