Also, you are to eat it this way: with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand. You are to eat it in haste. It is Adonai’s Passover.
The Israelites were to make themselves ready for God’s deliverance of them. On the night of Passover, they were to eat their meal in haste, prepared to leave at any moment the Lord called them into their freedom. When it came time to go, they didn’t have time for their bread to rise but took it with them as it was, unleavened.
What a vivid picture their readiness is for our lives as Believers today. Several times in the New Covenant God instructs us to be ready.
Ready to explain to others the reason for the hope we have in God.
Instead, sanctify Messiah as Lord in your hearts. Always be ready to give an answer to anyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you
―1 Peter 3:15
Ready to share the Good News that Yeshua paid the price for our sin and set us free to eternal life.
Proclaim the word! Be ready to preach the word, when it’s convenient and when it’s not.
―2 Timothy 4:2
Ready for Yeshua’s return for us.
If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself that where I am, there you may be also.
You also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you don’t expect.
Lord, thank You for all that You have done for me. You have delivered me from slavery to sin, and have freed me to abundant life, the protection of Your Lordship, and to freely worship You and walk in who You designed me to be. Because of Yeshua, I can know Your freely given love. Help me to live in readiness for You – ready to be used by You, to share with others the hope and good news You have given me. May I be ever ready for Your return when You will make our freedom complete!
