Tonight at Valdosta Kids on Mission we celebrated a Jewish Seder meal. Each part of the meal represents the deliverance of the slaves from Egypt. We tasted bitter herbs and salty water to remember what it was like to be a slave, and we tasted sweet apple desserts to remember how sweet it is to have a relationship with Christ.Â We ate bread wafers (with no leaven), and dipped our fingers in grape juice to remember the plagues. For the Christian, we apply Â additional fulfillments of the events and how they relate to Christ and His redemption of mankind from their bondage to sin.
What made the evening so fun and powerful was that it was so â€œhands-on.â€ They will remember the evening for a very long time because they were able to tie an experience with a biblical truth. For the Jew and Christian alike, this is a time of celebration and partying (although for different reasons).
