Journey To Freedom, Part 4: The Passover

When we get stuck, how do we get out or move forward? The Exodus story from the Bible reflects in its deeper meaning our journey from being stuck in hurtful patterns of behavior to a life of freedom and enjoyment.

Our story continues this week after Moses and Aaron confronted Pharaoh with the message to free the Israelites from slavery.  He stubbornly refused until he and Egypt were overwhelmed by all the plagues and especially the pain of the final plague – the death of the firstborn. God gave the children of Israel instructions on how to prevent the plague from striking their households. They were to eat a meal called the Passover. It was a meal of roasted lamb, unleavened bread, and bitter herbs. They were also to paint the doorposts and lintel of their doors with the lamb’s blood, and to be ready to go.

The Passover feast was instituted as a way to remember how God freed the children of Israel from slavery by a mighty hand. For us it is a reminder that it is God who fights for us, protects us, and leads us through our difficulties to spiritual freedom.

We will dig into the deeper meaning of this story as it operates as a mirror to our inner spiritual journey.
