Today you should read: Deuteronomy 16:1-12

In our passage today, Moses is instructing the Israelites on how to conduct two different feasts/traditions. These two traditions, The Passover and The Feast of Weeks, are to be kept so that the Israelites remember what God has done for them. Notice, in both sections that Moses points out the Israelites were once slaves in Egypt (v. 3 & 12). This is important because Moses wants the Israelites to remember what God has done for them during the times when the traditions are being kept. 

This is very similar to when we take of the Lord’s Supper today. The Lord’s Supper should be a time for every Christian to remember, reflect, and rejoice in that God has provided a way for us to have a right relationship with Him through His Son. The Israelites were just delivered from slavery when Moses was writing this. If you have accepted Jesus as Savior then you have been delivered from death and eternal separation from God, and that only happened because of Jesus. That is why the Lord’s Supper is so important. As Christians, we need to take specific times and thank God for what Jesus did on the cross. 

Would you set aside 3 times over the next week to thank God for sending His Son to die on our behalf?
