In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for an house:
And ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the month; and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening. And ye shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the house, wherein they shall eat it. And they shall eat the flesh in that night, roast with fire, and unleavened bread; and with bitter herbs they shall eat it.
"The Passover Lamb"
Mary held God's Passover Lamb and gazed into His eyes. The baby's sweet innocence brought joyful tears to her eyes. Did she know the sorrow this bundle of joy would face? Did she ponder the Shepherd's words when they came in haste?
Did Mary know the "Gift of Frankincense," Wise Men brought, was bitter with a sweet fragrance foretelling of a cross? A crowd will late shout crucify as Pilate washes his hands. Jesus will be slain by the congregation, God's Passover Lamb.
His Blood will beg forgiveness for sinners such as I. Bringing us into union with His Father, Oh! Sweet Home on High. Will we embrace our cross as Jesus did at Gethsemane -- by giving ourselves to God completely and wholeheartedly?
Oh yes! Saints will shout, let us do as the Passover Lamb. Deny ourselves, take up our cross, and glorify the Great I Am.
