Afternoon Thoughts-Choose this day whom you will serve!:

Exodus 12:2-3 This month shall be unto you the beginning of   months: it shall be the first month of the year to you. Speak ye unto   all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth day of this month   they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of   their fathers, a lamb for an house:
This past Monday   marked the beginning of Pesach (Passover) on the Hebrew calendar as it   was the 10th of Nisan and also the day that Yeshua (Jesus) would have   entered Jerusalem 2000 years ago. Every 10th of Nisan, four days before   Pesach, the children of Israel would choose a lamb for the Passover   sacrifice. Each man would take a lamb for his household. Four days were   required to inspect the animal to make sure it was perfect and without   blemish.
          Can you imagine having a lamb at home for four days --   the children feeding it, petting it, perhaps even naming it -- only to   know that it would have to die soon?
          We also have a Lamb to choose   today. Yeshua (Jesus), our perfect Passover Lamb who is without   blemish. Some of us reading this today have already chosen Him. Some may   have forgotten of our choice, others may be undecided.
          As the   scripture says, today is the day of salvation; those who have chosen   Yeshua remember His great work of atonement which brought us out of   bondage from sin. This was a supernatural deliverance just as it was for   the children of Israel when they came out of Egypt. The Passover lamb,   brought into the houses of the Israelites, became dear to them because   of its precious innocence and because its death invoked the memory of   the first Passover when the lamb's blood literally saved their lives   from the Angel of Death. Our perfect Lamb, so dear to us, will do the   same for all who receive Him; since the wages of sin is death, but the   gift of God is eternal life through our Lord Yeshua the Messiah. Amen,   and chag sameach. (Happy Holiday).
