Do you identify yourself as a Christian? Are you a follower of Jesus Christ - the Passover for all humanity? How will you commemorate His death till He comes?
The world is in the “bondage of corruption” and this is the environment in which we live.
However God promises salvation. He saves us through a process that takes time – a lifetime. As Christians, genuinely seeking to follow Christ, do we know fully what is this process and how we can participate in and embrace it?

Jesus chose to “taste death for every person.” He experienced suffering of unimaginable magnitude, and He died – not because He sinned, but because we sinned. In this there is no greater love. In this God’s great love for you and for me is manifest.

I think we would all agree that it is easier to judge someone else than to judge one self. However we know that Jesus Christ teaches that we are to remove the ‘plank’ out of our own eye before trying to take a ‘speck’ out of someone else’s. Have you heard the story written by Ruth Knowlton?
We don’t like to “feel bad” about ourselves. We have devised many ways within our lifestyles to ‘paper over’ sin. We have lived in such a way for so long that pain is the result. It is in humankind, however to want to always be good, no matter how many bad things we do.
Do we acknowledge and embrace the free gift of forgiveness which only God can grant us through his Son, Jesus Christ?
“Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be as wool.”
This is one of the most striking elements of the gospel message and makes the Kingdom of God possible. To have your sins forgiven freely, by the Great God who has individually approached us, is the greatest hallmark of His being.

God's Holy Days have rich meaning reminding us each of the major steps in God's great plan to save all of mankind and bring us into His great Family. As the Passover and Unleavened Bread festivals draw near it is good to reflect on the meaning of the wonderful Passover season.
Can we entertain sin in our lives? Surely, just a little can't be that bad! Should we really be concerned about sin? Does any good come from it? Or is sin our enemy which must be defeated?
