Why do we remove leaven from our homes and keep seven days of unleavened bread? In this Holy day sermon Mr. Smith covers the two most important answers to this question. 1. Because god has delivered us out of the spiritual bondage of the sins of this world. 2. We eat unleavened bread for seven days picturing putting out and keeping out sin from our lives and learning to live our lives according to the example Christ set for us.
