Romans 5:8
but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

More than 3,400 years ago Moses issued a decree to his people. They had been subject to slavery under the Egyptians for about 400 years when God raised up Moses to lead his people to freedom. Under his leadership, God had inflicted 9 plagues on the Egyptians to force Pharaoh to free the Israelites from slavery. The 10th plague was a plague of the death of the firstborn male of every family in Egypt. But God planned to preserve his people and commanded Moses to have each family kill a spotless lamb and place its blood on the wooden doorframes of their homes as a guard against this final plague. Having done this, the angel of death then passed over the Israelite homes and their firstborn were safe. Moses’ decree was a lockdown of all the Israelite homes until the danger had passed. If any had left the covering of the blood of the lamb, they would die from the plague. This final plague persuaded Pharaoh to free the Israelites from slavery. God’s people were saved from death and freed from slavery by the blood of a lamb. 

About 1,450 years later Jesus hung on a wooden cross, his blood staining its grain crimson. He hung there alone – locked down and separated from all who loved him. God’s one and only firstborn became the Passover Lamb whose blood was smeared on a wooden cross. Jesus suffered the 10th plague of death once for all. For all have sinned and come short of the fellowship of God, the consequence of which is death.

We were all under slavery to sin, locked down by corrupt desire. But God demonstrated his love to the world in this, while we were still sinners (enslaved to sin) Jesus died for us. On confessing Christ as Lord and believing that he died and rose again, we are set free from the lockdown of sin and come into fellowship once again with the Father of Creation.

Under the COVID-19 pandemic, communities and nations were locked down. People were separated from loved ones for fear of spreading the virus. Under the pandemic of sin (of which we will all die) we were all locked down – separated from the glory of God. But due to the lockdown of Jesus upon the cross, we have been healed of sin and freed from its slavery. Just as the shedding of blood by the Passover lamb both saved the Israelites from death and freed them from slavery, so the shedding of Blood by the Lamb of God – Jesus the Christ – has saved us from eternal death and freed us from the captivity of sin.

Are you under the Blood of the Lamb? Have you placed his blood, so to speak, on the doorframe of your heart? You and I are locked down under sin and will die from its effect. Only by confession and repentance of sin and pleading the blood of the Passover Lamb of God will we be freed from its bondage and enjoy abundant life.

I accept your act on the cross as a sacrifice to free me from the lockdown of sin

“Heavenly Father, thank you for the blood of Jesus that has become the Passover Blood that saved us from the results of sin, which is death. Thank you, dear Jesus, that you willingly subjected yourself to the lockdown of the cross so that we, if we believe in your death and resurrection, can be saved from death and freed from the slavery of sin. I humbly confess my sin and repent of it in Jesus’ name. I accept your act on the cross as a sacrifice to free me from the lockdown of sin. Come into my life, O Lord as I surrender my life to you. Amen.”
