As Easter Sunday approaches, our minds and hearts are turned again to consider the cross of Jesus Christ anew. We would like to invite you to join us in preparing for this wonderful celebration by participating in a Passover Haggadah. The Passover Haggadah is designed to “tell the story” of the Passover, to tell of God’s redemptive grace. The traditional Haggadah retells the story of the Exodus from Egypt. It speaks of God’s great redemption in bringing the nation of Israel out from bondage into freedom. It symbolizes God’s physical redemption of His people.
As believers in Jesus Christ, we can celebrate a deliverance on a much higher order, namely from slavery to our sin. At our celebration we will seek to especially point out how God’s redemptive grace has been shown forth most clearly in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ, our Messiah. If you’ve never participated in a Seder meal, you are in for a treat. If you are an old pro at these, consider joining us again as we reflect on our own deliverance from sin and the reconciliation that we now enjoy with the Father, through the Son.
I hope that you will be able to join us for an evening of worship and fellowship as we remember the lamb that whose blood cleanses us from all unrighteousness.
So thankful for our Passover Lamb,
Pastor of Preaching
Baptist Church of the Redeemer
