Passover Meal and Night of Prayer

On Maundy Thursday we shared a Passover meal to help us remember the last night Jesus spent with his disciples. Jesus went through the Passover meal that night, charged with its prophetic promise, knowing it was about to be realised in His death and resurrection, leading the disciples to the moment where they share in His broken body and are invited into a new covenant by His blood. The bread and the wine are the last symbols of the Passover meal and mark the climax of escaping the slavery of Egypt, they also came to mark with prophetic weight, the climax of Jesus’ ministry and the announcement of the freedom he was bringing. By his broken body on the cross and his blood spilt on the ground we have escaped slavery to a dark and hopeless life into a life filled with the light of Jesus, to know freedom from both the confining and lying voices in this world and to have hope in life now and life eternal.

Passover is a festival fulfilled in Jesus, his death and resurrection.

We continue to pray for the revival of his Church and the extension of his Kingdom!
