“Get rid of the old hametz, so that you can be a new batch of dough, because in reality you are unleavened. For our Pesach lamb, the Messiah, has been sacrificed. So, let us celebrate the Seder not with leftover hametz, the hametz of wickedness and evil, but with the matzah of purity and truth.” 1 Corinthians 5:7-8
Passover (Pesach) marks the redemption and rebirth of the Jewish people who were freed from slavery and led to the promised land. It’s a mark of new beginnings, a new year.
One of the ways we prepare for this holiday is to go through our homes, cleaning them from top to bottom to ensure we get all the hametz/leaven out; the leaven that also represents sin in our lives. We then bring in the matzah of purity and truth. A lot of people complain about matzah, because it’s dry and they can’t wait till they don’t have to eat it. While leaven represents the sin in our lives, for Messianic Jews, Matzah represents redemption and freedom of the Jewish people. Take a good look at a piece of matzah. He was pierced for our transgressions ... by His stripes we are healed (Isaiah 53:5). You can see the piercing’s, the bruises, the stripes. It reminds us that He has freed us from sin and shame. In this, it doesn’t seem so dry after all.
As we eat our matzah of purity and truth this Passover season, let us not forget the one who died for our sins; the One for whom we serve. Empty our hearts and lives of sin and fill our hearts and lives with His truth. Let’s start a new season with Him.
Be a Blessing and Be Blessed!
