Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year. You may take it from the sheep or from the goats. Now you shall keep it until the fourteenth day of the same month. Then the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it at twilight. And they shall take some of the blood and put it on the two doorposts and on the lintel of the houses where they eat it.
One of the reasons we can believe the Bible to be true is its consistency from beginning to end, from Genesis to Revelation. From the beginning of the book, when God used animal skins to cover Adam and Eve’s sins, we’ve been told it’s the sacrificial blood that saves us.
In this part of Exodus, we see again blood saving the people. The Lord had told Moses He was going to wipe out the firstborn male of every household in Egypt. However, He would spare the firstborn male in houses that had blood on the doorposts and the lintel as described above.
We can see in this story in Exodus that God’s people would be saved by the blood of the lamb. We, as His people, are also saved the same way, by the sacrifice Jesus made on the cross for our sins. Praise God today for sending His Son for our sakes!
Saved by the blood of the Lamb!
