Our Daily Bread Devotional 15 January 2022 | Insight

One of the wonders of Jesus’ crucifixion is that it happened on Israel’s national remembrance of Passover. In one eventful day, the stories of Moses and Jesus merged. From then on, the world had a new way of thinking about the mysterious language of killing and eating the Passover lamb. It was on this date on the ancient calendar of Israel that the God of creation judged the gods of Egypt by bringing to light their inability to protect anyone.

It was on that first Passover that the God of gods used the sacrifice of a lamb and a sacred meal to show that He alone was the source of life and freedom. Yet it wasn’t until Jesus’ death that people would understand the connection between Him and the Passover lamb and what it meant to eat and drink from God’s own self-sacrifice. By: Mart DeHaan

Carl was battling cancer and needed a double lung transplant. He asked God for new lungs but felt odd doing so. He confessed it’s a strange thing to pray, because “someone has to die so I might live.” Carl’s dilemma highlights a basic truth of Scripture: God uses death to bring life. We see this in the story of the exodus. Born into slavery, the Israelites languished under the oppressive hands of the Egyptians. Pharaoh wouldn’t release his grip until God made it personal. Every eldest son would die unless the family killed a spotless lamb and slathered its blood across their doorposts (Exodus 12:6–7, 12–13).

Today, you and I have been born into the bondage of sin. Satan wouldn’t release his grip on us until God made it personal, sacrificing His perfect Son on the blood-spattered arms of the cross. Jesus calls us to join Him there. Paul explained, “I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me” (Galatians 2:20). When we put our faith in God’s spotless Lamb, we commit to daily dying with Him—dying to our sin so we might rise with Him to new life (Romans 6:4–5). We express this faith every time we say no to the shackles of sin and yes to the freedom of Christ. We’re never more alive than when we die with Jesus. By: Mike Wittmer

Reflect: Why is death the only path to life? How have you shown that you’ve received Jesus’ death on your behalf?

Prayer: Jesus, Your death brings me life. Help me die to sin today and live my life through You.
