At the ancient festivals of Israel like Passover, Pentecost, and Tabernacles the people would thank God for what He had done in the past. For example: the history behind Passover is acknowledging God’s help when He passed by the blood-marked homes during the tenth plague called the death of Egyptian first-born. The Israelites were instructed to mark the doorposts of their homes with the blood of a lamb, upon seeing this, the Spirit of the Lord knew to pass over the first-borns in these homes, hence the name of the festival.
Today, we should praise God for passing over each of us marked with the blood of Christ so that we are spared from death eternal into life everlasting. Our needs are provided for because there is abundant life and eternal rewards through His Son.
His Word provides light for understanding and awareness which allows bright days even during dark times. Each person is of equal standing and God has concern for the joy of His people. He has great plans for our life because we have come so far. In Genesis 1:27, the Word says God created us in His own image. The God of the universe miraculously put us together in our Mother’s womb and He’s made us each unique with potential to do amazing things.
