Christ, Our Passover

1 Corinthians 5:7 (NIV)

7Get rid of the old yeast that you may be a new batch without yeast—as you really are. For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed.

I.      The Pointing of the Passover

A.     Historical Past

- The Passover celebrated the actions of God on behalf of his people in the reality of past history.

B.     Christological Present

- Christ is our Passover

Matthew 26:27 through Matthew 26:29 (NIV)

27Then he took the cup, gave thanks and offered it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. 28This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. 29I tell you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it anew with you in my Father’s kingdom.”

C.      Eschatological Future

Matthew 26:27 through Matthew 26:29 (NIV)

27Then he took the cup, gave thanks and offered it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. 28This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. 29I tell you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it anew with you in my Father’s kingdom.”

II.   The Purging of the Passover

A.     Excising Sin

- Get rid of the leaven

Exodus 23:18 (NIV)

18“Do not offer the blood of a sacrifice to me along with anything containing yeast.

“The fat of my festival offerings must not be kept until morning.

1 Corinthians 5:6 through 1 Corinthians 5:8 (NIV)

6Your boasting is not good. Don’t you know that a little yeast works through the whole batch of dough? 7Get rid of the old yeast that you may be a new batch without yeast—as you really are. For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed. 8Therefore let us keep the Festival, not with the old yeast, the yeast of malice and wickedness, but with bread without yeast, the bread of sincerity and truth.

B.     Expelling Sinners

- What does the righteous and unrighteous have in common?

Exodus 12:19 (NIV)

19For seven days no yeast is to be found in your houses. And whoever eats anything with yeast in it must be cut off from the community of Israel, whether he is an alien or native-born.

1 Corinthians 5:11 through 1 Corinthians 5:12 (NIV)

11But now I am writing you that you must not associate with anyone who calls himself a brother but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or a slanderer, a drunkard or a swindler. With such a man do not even eat.

12What business is it of mine to judge those outside the church? Are you not to judge those inside?

III.           The Participation in the Passover

A.     A Member of the Redeemed

- Family is Everything

Ephesians 1:3 through Ephesians 1:10 (NIV)

3Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. 4For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love 5he predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will—6to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves. 7In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace 8that he lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding. 9And he made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ, 10to be put into effect when the times will have reached their fulfillment—to bring all things in heaven and on earth together under one head, even Christ.

B.     The Movement of the Exodus

- This world is not my home

                        - Celebrate our coming out
