Today you should read: 2 Chronicles 30
If you couldn’t tell by now, the Passover was a pretty big deal as described in 2 Chronicles 30. This was the opportunity for all of Israel and Judah, separated by distance and other issues, can unite together to worship the Lord as one at the temple. They get together to remember and commemorate the story of the Exodus where God miraculously freed his people from slavery in Egypt. And from that point forward they were to get together for that same purpose and remembrance.
Jesus knew what He was doing, getting his disciples together for the Passover, explaining more in-depth what was about to happen with his loving sacrifice on the Cross. He knew that just like God’s people got together to remember God freeing His people from physical slavery, Jesus would commission us to get together with the Lord’s Supper to remember Him freeing us from spiritual slavery. And through this great ordinance or sacrament, we are reminded of our unity again. Like Israel and Judah’s experiences in this chapter.
