The Passover shows us Godís grand, loving design for his chosen people continuing to unfold.

God spares them from death, frees them from slavery and prepares to lead them out of Egypt into the promised land. This wonderful act of redemption is to come to its full fruition in the passion and resurrection of Jesus.

As we approach our great Easter feast, we are once again alerted to the powerful paradox of Christianity. On the night of the Last Supper, when he institutes the Eucharist, leaving himself as a precious gift to his followers, Jesus also performed the most menial of tasks. He showed us the way - that it is in serving that we are truly satisfied, in giving that we richly receive, and in suffering and dying that we pass with him into eternal glory.
