On Saturday we read the Passover story in Exodus 12:1-30 and a few of the children drew pictures based on a few of the items contained in the story.
On Sunday we read the Passover story again and I went through and elaborated on more details.
I shared how Jesus fulfilled Passover as the perfect and sinless lamb of God,who takes away the sin of the world (John 1:29) and that He also fulfilled the Feast of Unleavened Bread, as He was without sin (Hebrews 4:15). Unleavened bread was made without yeast and 1in Corinthians 5:6-8 we read that yeast represents sin. Verse 7 of Exodus 12 tells us that there is no yeast to be found in your houses.
Passover is a good reminder to re-examine ourselves and to confess to Jesus the sin we have in our lives.
I shared with the children about the blood on the doorposts and how everyone who had the blood of the lamb painted on their doorposts would be saved. In the same way everyone who places their trust and belief in the blood of the Lamb, Jesus, He too will put His blood on the doorposts of their hearts so that they will be saved too from eternal judgment.
We concluded with reading Matthew 26:17-29 and shared communion together.
