Last night was night to be much observed. It's depiction of coming out of sin. Christ was a perfect, unblemished sacrifice. Some say that Christ did it all and there is nothing else we need to do. Meaning of the days of Unleavend Bread is to put out sin. We search our hearts, minds to put out sin. Christ had something to do. He had a great and vital responsibilities. We have great and vital responsibilities to put out sin in our lives. What is our role, what are our responsibilities? Each son and daughter of God has a role.  There is a parallel with what happened to our ancestors and what is happening with us today.  1) Jesus Christ was the one who brought out the Israelites from bondage 1Co 10:1  Moreover, brethren, I do not want you to be unaware that all our fathers were under the cloud, all passed through the sea, 1Co 10:2  all were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea, 1Co 10:3  all ate the same spiritual food, 1Co 10:4  and all drank the same spiritual drink. For they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them, and that Rock was Christ. What Jesus was willing to do for the Israelites. The Israelites were free from slavery. We are freed from sin. Exo 6:5  And I have also heard the groaning of the children of Israel whom the Egyptians keep in bondage, and I have remembered My covenant. Exo 6:6  Therefore say to the children of Israel: 'I am the LORD; I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, I will rescue you from their bondage, and I will redeem you with an outstretched arm and with great judgments. The plagues Exo 6:7  I will take you as My people, and I will be your God. Then you shall know that I am the LORD your God who brings you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians. Exo 6:8  And I will bring you into the land which I swore to give to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; and I will give it to you as a heritage: I am the LORD.' " Who do we want to be enslaved to? Psa 105:36  He also destroyed all the firstborn in their land, The first of all their strength. Psa 105:37  He also brought them out with silver and gold, And there was none feeble among His tribes. Psa 105:38  Egypt was glad when they departed, For the fear of them had fallen upon them. Psa 105:39  He spread a cloud for a covering, And fire to give light in the night. Psa 105:40  The people asked, and He brought quail, And satisfied them with the bread of heaven. Psa 105:41  He opened the rock, and water gushed out; It ran in the dry places like a river. Psa 105:42  For He remembered His holy promise, And Abraham His servant. Psa 105:43  He brought out His people with joy, His chosen ones with gladness. Psa 105:44  He gave them the lands of the Gentiles, And they inherited the labor of the nations, Psa 105:45  That they might observe His statutes And keep His laws. Praise the LORD! Luk 4:15  And He taught in their synagogues, being glorified by all. Luk 4:16  So He came to Nazareth, where He had been brought up. And as His custom was, He went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up to read. Luk 4:17  And He was handed the book of the prophet Isaiah. And when He had opened the book, He found the place where it was written: Luk 4:18  "THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD IS UPON ME, BECAUSE HE HAS ANOINTED ME TO PREACH THE GOSPEL TO THE POOR; HE HAS SENT ME TO HEAL THE BROKENHEARTED, TO PROCLAIM LIBERTY TO THE CAPTIVES AND RECOVERY OF SIGHT TO THE BLIND, TO SET AT LIBERTY THOSE WHO ARE OPPRESSED; Luk 4:20  Then He closed the book, and gave it back to the attendant and sat down. And the eyes of all who were in the synagogue were fixed on Him. Luk 4:21  And He began to say to them, "Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing." This event marks the beginning of deliverance. Act 26:14  And when we all had fallen to the ground, I heard a voice speaking to me and saying in the Hebrew language, 'Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me? It is hard for you to kick against the goads.' Act 26:15  So I said, 'Who are You, Lord?' And He said, 'I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting. Act 26:16  But rise and stand on your feet; for I have appeared to you for this purpose, to make you a minister and a witness both of the things which you have seen and of the things which I will yet reveal to you. Act 26:17  I will deliver you from the Jewish people, as well as from the Gentiles, to whom I now send you, Act 26:18  to open their eyes, in order to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who are sanctified by faith in Me.' John the Baptist is preaching. Joh 1:26  John answered them, saying, "I baptize with water, but there stands One among you whom you do not know. Joh 1:27  It is He who, coming after me, is preferred before me, whose sandal strap I am not worthy to loose." Joh 1:28  These things were done in Bethabara beyond the Jordan, where John was baptizing. Joh 1:29  The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, "Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! The role of Christ 1Co 5:7  Therefore purge out the old leaven, that you may be a new lump, since you truly are unleavened. For indeed Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed for us. 1Co 5:8  Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. What are our responsibilities? Mar 8:34  When He had called the people to Himself, with His disciples also, He said to them, "Whoever desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. Mar 8:35  For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel's will save it. Mar 8:36  For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Mar 8:37  Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? Mar 8:38  For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him the Son of Man also will be ashamed when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels." Rom 7:4  Therefore, my brethren, you also have become dead to the law through the body of Christ, that you may be married to another—to Him who was raised from the dead, that we should bear fruit to God. Rom 7:5  For when we were in the flesh, the sinful passions which were aroused by the law were at work in our members to bear fruit to death. Rom 7:6  But now we have been delivered from the law, having died to what we were held by, so that we should serve in the newness of the Spirit and not in the oldness of the letter. Rom 3:31  Do we then make void the law through faith? Certainly not! On the contrary, we establish the law. Isa 28:9  "Whom will he teach knowledge? And whom will he make to understand the message? Those just weaned from milk? Those just drawn from the breasts? Isa 28:10  For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept, Line upon line, line upon line, Here a little, there a little." Rom 5:12  Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned— 1Jn 3:4  Whoever commits sin also commits lawlessness, and sin is lawlessness. Rom 7:5  For when we were in the flesh, the sinful passions which were aroused by the law were at work in our members to bear fruit to death. Rom 7:6  But now we have been delivered from the law, having died to what we were held by, so that we should serve in the newness of the Spirit and not in the oldness of the letter. Rom 8:2  For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. Rom 8:3  For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh, Rom 8:4  that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. 1Pe 2:24  who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed. How do we die to sins? Rom 6:1  What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? Rom 6:2  Certainly not! How shall we who died to sin live any longer in it? Rom 6:3  Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death? Rom 6:4  Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. Rom 6:5  For if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we also shall be in the likeness of His resurrection, Rom 6:6  knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin. Our old man died with Christ when we went under the waters of baptism. When we come to that point in our lives, burying the old man. The old man is crucified. The body of sin is done away with. We have to crucified the old man. We should no longer be slaves to sin. Who will now be our master? Will we continue to be slaves of sin? Rom 6:7  For he who has died has been freed from sin. God wants us to be free from sin. God is talking about our lives. Rom 6:8  Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him, Rom 6:9  knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, dies no more. Death no longer has dominion over Him. We want to be with Christ, we want Christ in us. Death no longer has power over Him. The life that He lives is with God. Rom 6:10  For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God. Rom 6:11  Likewise you also, reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord. Paul says quit sinning. Your old man has died. How do we reckon ourselves to sin? Imagine the water of baptism. We look down and see an old person that has died. The new man must walk in the spirit. Rom Transitional thought. Rom 6:12  Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts. Sin can still reign in our mortal bodies. We need to present ourselves as a new man 6:6  knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin. Rom 6:7  For he who has died has been freed from sin. Rom 6:8  Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him, Rom 6:9  knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, dies no more. Death no longer has dominion over Him. Rom 6:10  For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God. Rom 6:11  Likewise you also, reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord. Rom 6:12  Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts.  to God. Rom 6:13  And do not present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but present yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God. Rom 6:14  For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace. Tit 2:11  For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, Tit 2:12  teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, Tit 2:13  looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, Tit 2:14  who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works. Tit 2:15  Speak these things, exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no one despise you. Rom 6:14  For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace. Rom 6:15  What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? Certainly not! Rom 6:16  Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one's slaves whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or of obedience leading to righteousness? Rom 6:17  But God be thanked that though you were slaves of sin, yet you obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine to which you were delivered. Rom 6:18  And having been set free from sin, you became slaves of righteousness. Rom 6:19  I speak in human terms because of the weakness of your flesh. For just as you presented your members as slaves of uncleanness, and of lawlessness leading to more lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves of righteousness for holiness. Rom 6:20  For when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness. Rom 6:21  What fruit did you have then in the things of which you are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death. Rom 6:22  But now having been set free from sin, and having become slaves of God, you have your fruit to holiness, and the end, everlasting life. Rom 6:23  For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Rom 8:1  There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. Rom 8:2  For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. Rom 7:4  Therefore, my brethren, you also have become dead to the law through the body of Christ, that you may be married to another—to Him who was raised from the dead, that we should bear fruit to God. Rom 7:5  For when we were in the flesh, the sinful passions which were aroused by the law were at work in our members to bear fruit to death. Rom 7:6  But now we have been delivered from the law, having died to what we were held by, so that we should serve in the newness of the Spirit and not in the oldness of the letter. Rom 8:8  So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God. Rom 8:9  But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His. Rom 12:1  I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. Could we become alive to the law after we died to it? Heb 10:24  And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, Heb 10:25  not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching. Heb 10:26  For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, Heb 10:27  but a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and fiery indignation which will devour the adversaries. 2Pe 2:18  For when they speak great swelling words of emptiness, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through lewdness, the ones who have actually escaped from those who live in error. 2Pe 2:19  While they promise them liberty, they themselves are slaves of corruption; for by whom a person is overcome, by him also he is brought into bondage. 2Pe 2:20  For if, after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and overcome, the latter end is worse for them than the beginning. 2Pe 2:21  For it would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than having known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered to them. 2Pe 2:22  But it has happened to them according to the true proverb: "A DOG RETURNS TO HIS OWN VOMIT," and, "a sow, having washed, to her wallowing in the mire." 2Ti 1:10  but has now been revealed by the appearing of our Savior Jesus Christ, who has abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel, Rom 6:22  But now having been set free from sin, and having become slaves of God, you have your fruit to holiness, and the end, everlasting life.
