Hymn 1:  p.226 – The Feast is Spread

Hymn 2: p. 71 – Gather Us In,

Introduction: Last night, we celebrated the Passover meal and remembered through the readings of Scriptures God’s deliverance of Israel out of bondage from the Egyptians. A foreshadow of  God’s redemptive plan for all mankind thru the death of His Son Jesus Christ.

The offering up of Christ’s body thru His death on the cross paved the way for mankind to be free from the bondage of sin- His body, being symbolized by the unleavened bread. As it is written in 1 Corinthians 11:24:

“And when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, “Take, eat this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me.”

It is therefore imperative for all of us that we follow through the symbols given (ordinances) surrounding the keeping of the Days of Unleavened Bread to show we acknowledge the great sacrifice that our Lord Jesus Christ did.

Our first batch of bible readers will be reading significant verses about these.

Hymn 3. P.2.57 – To God be The Glory

A.Prepare All Ingredients .How do we prepare the unleavened bread to be used for the Passover? Every household is encouraged to prepare its own unleavened bread and a lot of online recipes are available but there are actually four basic steps in preparing for it. And each step has a lesson to impart.

The first step is to prepare all ingredients- flour, oil, salt and water. Simple and pure. No trimmings. This step teaches us the lesson on purity. Reader No.3 will further illustrate this.

B.Mix All Ingredients. The second step is to mix the ingredients. But as every baker knows that is not just simple dumping everything in a bowl and mix them. You need to mix first thing first. First, we need to mix all dry ingredients together and the wet ingredients together before gradually the wet ingredients to the dry mixture.

What does this step tell us? God’s salvation is for ALL mankind but God offered it to the Jews first and then to the Gentiles.

Our next Bible verses will tell us about Israel’s important role as a model nation and the Gentiles’ inclusion into the fold.

C.Knead, Flatten, Poke. The 3rd step in preparing the unleavened bread involves three processes – knead, flatten and poke with a fork to let no air enter in the dough while baking. The same way that Jesus Christ was beaten for our transgressions, humbly and yet without sin, we also must exercise that same humility –no air.

Our next bible reader will read verses pertaining to this.

Watch And Pray: Thank you, brethren. Let us pause now as we hear the news that we need to watch and pray for.

Thank you for the special music offering and for our watchman.

D.Bake At 375’c Up To 400’c. Our last step is the baking itself. We preheat the oven so that the temperature is constant when we put in the dough for baking. The same happens to every believer when faced with trials and tests, we come out golden and perfected through our faith.

Our next bible reader will further illustrate this.
