As we enter into the Passover and Easter holiday I reflect on the meaning of Passover. While I was raised in a Christian home, I have had a fascination with the Jewish Holy Days. Several year ago I met Joan Lipis the author of Celebrate Jesus a wonderful book that helped open my eyes to Christ in all the High Holy Days of the Jewish faith. As I study my Bible lesson for the week, I came across several verses, however one verse really stood out for me heading into the holiday season.
Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day; we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
I Thessalonians 5:5
I Thessalonians 5:16
Jesus is the light of the world and we are children of that wonderful light. Now because of his sacrifice for use we can rejoice for ever in his resurrection.
