On this Christmas Eve, we have gathered as a church to celebrate the birth of our Savior, who was born to die.  Just before he died, He ate the Passover meal with His disciples.

He said, “do this in remembrance of Me.”  The original Passover took place in Egypt while the Jews were still in captivity.  The Passover centered on the Passover lamb, which was sacrificed and its blood put over the doorposts as a sign of faith, so that the Lord passed over the houses of the Jews during the last plague poured out on the Egyptians - the killing of every firstborn.  The New Testament says that Jesus is our sacrificial Lamb.  Let us be reminded of His body that was beaten and His blood that was shed on the cross for the forgiveness of our sins.  God’s gift to us is Jesus the final Lamb to die for our sins.  Let us give ourselves, in obedience, as our gift to Him.
