Christ Our Passover, Part IV. “Serving the Lamb”
Message Title: Christ Our Passover, Part IV. “Serving the Lamb” Part 12 of The Scarlet Thread series Pastor Ayars Scripture—Exodus 12:11 “In this manner you shall eat it: with your belt fastened, your sandals on your feet, and your staff in your hand. And you shall eat it in haste. It is the LORD’s Passover.” Other Scriptures for review (pertaining to serving the Lord): Ex 1:13-15; 4:23; 7:16; 8:20; 9:1, 13; 10: 3; 12:31 Main Idea—God freed His people from serving the gods of Egypt to serving the One True God. Four Characteristics of a successful servant of the Lamb: Loins girded. Remove those things distracting you from serving the Lord (v. 11; Heb 12:1) Sandals on your feet. You shouldn’t go barefoot when you’re doing “heavy lifting.” Be skilled, prepared and equipped (v. 11; Eph 6:15, 2 Tim 2:15) Staff in your hand. Christians are pilgrims in this world—as such, we should not get too attached to the people, places and things of this world (v. 11; Heb 13:11; 1 Peter 2:11) Haste. As you wait for the Lord to come back, do something, for the time is short (v. 11; Acts 1:8-11) Application Time— Are you on the road to “success” that is, success as measured in allowing God to lead you. What do you believe is your maturity level? As measured based upon your maturity “in Christ.” Are you “ready to give an answer” when someone asks you about your faith? How is your level of urgency?
