Passover Seder: Understanding the Experiences of Life

Preceding sundown on Nissan 14, which fell on April 14th this year (2014), is a lot of preparation for the Passover Seder. Understanding the experiences of life has taught me that sometimes there is a HUGE amount of work before sitting down to enjoy a lengthy meal that tells the story (Haggadah, in Hebrew) of the exodus from Egypt. This year was no exception for the work involved, but what made it different is that I served the meal only for my daughter, Amy Van Mechelen, and myself, and it was completely vegan–oh, except for the boiled egg–because we include eggs in our diet regularly.

Developing Character with the Festivals of the Lord

The Festivals of the Lord, which are referred to in scripture as God’s appointed times (the word in Hebrew is moedim), are both personal and prophetic in nature, developing character within us as we practice them. In the end of the third chapter of Ephesians, Paul prays, That [God] would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man, so that Messiah may dwell in your hearts through faith; and that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Messiah which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God. Now to Him who is able to do far more...
