Free At Last

God gave instruction for the first Passover in Exodus 12:21 through 13:1-16. Moses and Aaron communicated these instructions to the Israelites and they responded by following just as commanded. Then they bowed down and worshiped (v. 27).

At midnight the Lord struck down all the firstborn in Egypt but the Israelites followed the instructions for the Passover sacrifice to the Lord so the firstborn in each house with blood on the sides and tops of the doorframes were spared.

Pharaoh then told Moses and Aaron to leave with the Israelite people along with their flocks and herds. They had been in the land of slavery for 430 years and now were free.

This day with You Lord, we are thankful that by responding to You Father, we are also set free. We are free from the bondage of sin by accepting the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross. Lord this day, help us to be disciplined in putting You first so that in everything we do, we glorify You. In Jesus name. Amen.

About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
