Re:Verse reading–Mark 14:12-31 (day four)
It was an ancient Jewish festival…Pesach was a spring festival associated with the season of grain harvest. In the course of time, the life of the Jews changed and the festival took on new meanings and new significances. During the period of the exodus, Pesach, or Passover as it was reinterpreted, became associated with the deliverance from Egypt. Now, in celebrating the Passover with His disciples, Jesus attaches a new meaning and significance to the celebration. It has become what believers now know as the Lord’s Supper…remembering His death and sacrifice made for men and women.
Has your life had periods of new meaning and significance to old experiences? Have you grown in your relationship with Christ? Life is not intended to remain stagnant…there is constant growth. Seek the Lord daily for wisdom and direction. The living Word of God and the Spirit of God will open new understanding…the application of His Truth to your life will bring new significance…the realization of God’s promises will bring great joy!
