Very little time, but I did want to take a moment to say to all who may come by here that I pray your Passover will go or has gone well and profitably. As I type, for many of our brethren around the world, the Passover observance has come and gone, while for those of us in America it is just now getting ready to begin tonight.
Though my thoughts today are on the sacrifice of our Lord and Savior, on what that sacrifice teaches me about His commitment to me, and on the commitment I made at baptism to love Him with all I am and to strive to make myself ready in this life to be His bride at His coming, my thoughts are also with so many of you out there, who are meditating on the same ideas, full of thankfulness of your own.
While our relationship with God is an intensely personal one, it is also something meant to be experienced within a community — a community that Jesus Christ and His Father have crafted out of you and me, creating a family and a people out of those who were once not a family and not a people (1 Peter 2:9-10). To all of my brothers and sisters out there, it is a privilege and a humbling honor to be in this family with you and to make up this people with you.
May your Passover and Days of Unleavened bread be profitable beyond measure and meaningful beyond words, and may they help to draw you closer to God than you thought possible.
