Glory to God Through Our Lord Jesus Christ!

It is interesting how the various stages of life  bring    seasons  of remembrance    during  holidays...  especially... for example the  last year we  did the Passover Seder  with my parents.
The celebration of a Messianic Passover meal adds so much to   our  holy week  celebration.

Messianic haggadahs are  easily accessible online and the  symbolism is  so precious!!

 It really  brings   Christ's  sacrifice    to bear on our lives!!!  It is even so much more meaningful since our daughter gave us this   gorgeous Seder Plate..where each element  offers  its own special  representation  to  the  meaning of passover..

 The Passover meal is celebrated on Maundy Thursday  and the next night is  Good Friday..  which  absolutely  pierces  our hearts as we  contemplate the  sacrifice of our Lord Jesus Christ!!

Such a solemn and  thought provoking   evening....we have so much to  thank  our Lord for the depth of His love and  honoring of the Father  in enduring the  cross on our behalf...  The  scourging and the humiliation.. the suffering and the  death and His  complete innocence,  then separation   from  God is something the human mind can not  truly fathom. But we must  try to wrap our mind around it  during this season  that  we will  understand  the depth, the width ,the, height of His so great love for us.
Then tomorrow, resurrection Sunday  we  shout   glory to God... He is risen... He is risen, indeed!!
it is then we can truly celebrate  the new life and  redemption we  enjoy by Christ's  resurrection!!!
