Yesterday we discussed the servanthood of Jesus as He washed his disciples’ feet. Jesus took His seat at the table after washing their feet and told them to do likewise. Today, we proceed to the celebration they’d gathered for.
The passover was a time of looking back and remembering, what were they remembering? For more information look at the chapter . There is bread, there is blood, and they are told to “Remember”.
Read Exodus
Exodus 12:14 ESV
“This day shall be for you a memorial day, and you shall keep it as a feast to the Lord; throughout your generations, as a statute forever, you shall keep it as a feast.
Exodus 12:14
This is why they’d gathered. But note the change that Jesus makes of the meal. Read of the change as recorded in .
Luke 22:18–20 ESV
For I tell you that from now on I will not drink of the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God comes.” And he took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” And likewise the cup after they had eaten, saying, “This cup that is poured out for you is the new covenant in my blood.
The bread of the passover now represents his body. The cup is poured out for you is the new covenant in His blood.
The blood of the lamb was put on the doorposts so that the angel of death would “passover’ the Israelites in Exodus. The blood is now the new covenant and poured out for the Forgiveness of sins. .
Matthew 26:28 ESV
for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.
What’s new? There is a major change in the one making the sacrifice. It’s not the people who make the sacrifice, it is our Creator God making the sacrifice. It is by the blood of the son that we received forgiveness of sins.

Take some time to reflect on your life. Name instances of sin that come to mind out loud. Pray and name them before God, and know they are forgiven.
Like many in the midst of this quarantine you are likely doing some work around the house and/or in your yard. As you wash the dirt from your hands thank God that in the same way your sins have been washed away through Jesus blood.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, you came to earth, you lived among the people teaching us lessons that would be preserved for me to learn. You went to the cross for me. Your body was broken for me. You blood was poured out for the forgiveness of my sins. Thank you. Thank you that I am cleansed by your love. Help me live knowing your love. In your name I pray, AMEN!
