Pathway’s 40 days of prayer campaign runs from Wednesday, February 14 to Saturday, March 31. Join us as we unite as a church in prayer. Our theme verse for the campaign is 2 Chronicles 7:14. Starting on Wednesday, February 14, join your fellow brothers and sisters in Christ as we all pray together at 7:14am and 7:14pm. Devotionals and prayer topics will be posted on FB and on our website on a regular basis. Be sure to let us know what’s on your mind and heart throughout these 40 days by using #PBCPRAY40 wherever you post!
God instituted the Passover when He exiled the Jews from their Egyptian taskmasters in Exodus 12. They were to sacrifice an unblemished lamb, then take some of its blood and put it on their doorposts as a sign for God. And when He would see the blood as He passed over their homes, His judgment would not fall on their households like it would against their Egyptian masters. They were to celebrate the Passover feast annually as a memorial of God’s saving grace.
There has only been one unblemished person to ever live on this earth. His name is Jesus Christ. He was born of a virgin who was visited upon by the Holy Spirit—an immaculate conception. He lived the perfect life in perfect obedience to God, the Father, to fulfill His ultimate purpose and become the Passover Lamb for the world. Just as it was an act of God’s grace to the Israelites on the eve of their exodus out of Egypt, so it is for this world, that the true Passover Lamb was sacrificed and now we, too, are freed to truly live as He intended us to be.
