day four *Wed*<>
> Preparing for the Cross /p>
All Israel prepares a paschal lamb or a kid of a year old, Exo. 12:5 says it must be “an unblemished Male” on the tenth day of the month until the 14th day. Our pastor just preached on this, Jewish tradition says they would bring the lamb into their homes, clean it up, keep it till the day of the “Sacrifice.” It was special to them, it was the best they had!
Not much is said in the New Testament about Jesus and the disciples activities on this day. But we do know that in this silence in scripture, Gods plan was still in action!
Judas was selling out Jesus, The holier than thou church members were still plotting against Jesus. The disciples were still pondering the Parables of Jesus and still understanding with carnal minds.
Have you thought, not seeing any action, was God still in control?
God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob, prepare our heart as all Israel prepares for the “Feast of Passover” You, Lord, are always faithful. We stumble. We become lost. But you are steady and sure. Give us the grace to endure our troubles, and reveal to us the glory of your kingdom.
Through your son, Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit.
Yours in the Life of Jesus, His Death, Burial and Resurrection,
