Keepint the Feast of Unleavened Bread following the Passover symbolized living the Christian life in dedication and service to God. How does this apply to us today? Living the Christian life in this context means allowing the Lord Jesus Christ to be Lord of every area of our life. We are expressly told “Therefore let us keep the Feast, not with old leaven nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth” (1 Corinthians 5:8). To continue celebrating the holiness of life in dedication to God.
Holy dedication means avoiding such sins as malice and wickedness. Faith should express itself in obedience. Service should accompany our believing and thinking. Sincerity and truth are the nourishments on which the faithful believer will be sustained.
As the Lord Jesus Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed for us, we should continue to offer ourselves as living sacrifices unto Him. St. Paul, in his letter to the Romans, said, “I beseech you therefore brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service and do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God” (Romans 12:1-2).
