Prayer and Devotions for the First Night of Passover
Passover is about remembering what God has done in the past, living with expectancy for what God is going to do today, and what He will do in the future.
God is so amazing! He places shadows of Yeshua throughout a history that took place before He ever became a man and walked this Earth as God the Son, Yeshua.
On that first Passover night, when the angel of death came through Egypt, he saw the Passover lamb’s blood on the doorposts of Jewish homes, and he passed over them, visiting only those not covered by the blood. What a vivid picture this is of how Yeshua’s (Jesus’) blood, poured out and sacrificed for us, covers our sin and protects us from spiritual death.
The Apostle Paul proclaimed that Yeshua is our Passover (1 Corinthians 5:7). Jesus made the once-and-for-all sacrifice for our sin (Hebrews 9:12, Hebrews 10:10) and has saved us out of death and into life (John 5:24).
Yeshua, You are our Passover Lamb. Perfect. Innocent. Sacrificed for us. My sin comes with a cost, and Yeshua, You paid it for me. Like the lamb that Passover night, You gave your blood as a covering for sin. For my sin. Because of You, I have eternal life. Death has passed over me.
By Your death, I am spared what my sin deserves. When the Father looks at all who believe in You, Jesus, He sees not the stains of our sin, but Your blood – declaring us righteous, rescuing us from spiritual death, and securing our eternal hope.
Yeshua, how can I thank You enough?
