JOY --- Jesus On the JourneY

Just wondering

Before Passover – the Israelites had to ready themselves.  Last week I revisited several Old Testament passages remembering verses we had lived off of the 12 years in preparation for our move. 
One thing caught my attention-- so many times, before a special celebration or God-encounter, He would tell them to wash their clothes in preparation -– What is it about dealing with our dirty laundry that is important to God?
They had been walking around that dusty desert and were a grimy bunch – they had spent so much time in the wilderness – the Bible says their clothes and shoes did not wear out – but doesn’t say their clothes were dazzling white – or that they weren’t a smelly bunch of folks.
When we put on fresh clean clothes – don’t we feel all brand new? – Don't we have more positive energy?

Could this have been symbol of being washed and fully clean through redemption?
Or than in Christ all things become new?

In your heart -- set aside tomorrow to remember that final Passover Jesus shared with his special friends -- remember that as He was breaking the bread and serving up the lamb --He knew HE was the PASSOVER LAMB...
