Pesach Part Two

"Celebrate the Feast of Unleavened Bread, because it was on this very day that I brought your divisions out of Egypt. Celebrate this day as a lasting ordinance for the generations to come." (Exodus 12:17)

We are to celebrate this festival forever. Yes, it is the law. However, we don't do it out of obligation to the law but out of desire to do his will. By living through this celebration, we become intimate with G-d and his plan of salvation. We, as Christians, need to become one with G-d. Celebrating his feasts is instrumental in getting to know your bridegroom.

Tomorrow, we start with the Bedikat Hametz.

Ba-rukh A-tah A-do-nai E-lo-hey-nu Me-lekh ha-'o-lam a-sher kid-sha-nu B'-mi-tzvo-tav v'-tzi-va-nu l'-had-lik ner shel (shabbat) yom tov.

Blessed are you, O Lord our God, King of the Universe, who has sanctified us by your commandments, and has commanded us to kindle the Festival lights. Amen.
