Oh Egypt, you paid such a price that day in your stubbornness against God. Why did your first-born sons have to die in order for a people to be saved from your evil? The picture you did paint for us to see, a picture now thousands of years old, and yet as relevant today as was then! The sound of your weeping filled the air that night! But nary a one of those who embraced the blood of the Lamb.
The first born son of God died so a people could go free. Believers. Is that you and me? But now he has become the FIRST-BORN of many sons and daughters in God! His death brought life! His death brought many spiritual births! His death brought life to the dead! It all happened when he overcame death and rose from that dark place bringing forth God’s Kingdom in power, never to die again! BUT IS THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB ON YOUR DOOR? If so, why not show your neighbors? Why not show your community? Why not show the world? Are you afraid? Embarrassed? Too much effort? Don’t be afraid, but be filled with faith! This is but a baby step! Let it be the first born of many! Let this be your not so silent witness.
Blessed Resurrection Day!
