…Jesus and the apostles sat down together at the table. Jesus said, “I have been very eager to eat this Passover meal with you before my suffering begins. For I tell you now that I won’t eat this meal again until its meaning is fulfilled in the Kingdom of God.” Luke 22:14-16
Jesus with His Twelve dining the Passover meal before He was crucified for our sins – this popular event was more commonly referred as “the Last Supper”.
As Jesus mentioned here, He was very eager to eat that specific Passover meal because He was just about to fulfill what it means!
The very first title used by John the Baptist to introduce Jesus was “The Lamb of God” –
The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! John 1:29
His name ‘Jesus’ self-describes what He will do – “for he will save his people from their sins.”
And she will have a son, and you are to name him Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins. Matthew 1:21
By His death on the Cross, Jesus has delivered us from the bondages of sin.
By His resurrection from the death, Jesus has declared us righteous and acceptable in the presence of God.
Now that we are delivered from the bondages, redeemed from our sins and are declared righteous, and has escaped the coming Judgment – let us celebrate Him with the fear of the Lord and keeping ourselves right before Him.
“… Christ, our Passover Lamb, has been sacrificed for us. So let us celebrate the festival, not with the old bread of wickedness and evil, but with the new bread of sincerity and truth.” 1 Corinthians 5:7-8
Let’s stay connected to Christ and enjoy the close communion with Him, that’s happy meal!
“Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing. Anyone who does not remain in me is thrown away like a useless branch and withers. Such branches are gathered into a pile to be burned. John 15:5-6
