Physical leaven is symbolic of sin. Once started, it can spread quickly. It puffs up the entire batch of dough like human vanity and pride. It takes effort to locate it and remove it. Leaven… like sin is so much a part of our culture, we must literally change our daily routine to remove it, and avoid it. We should reject sin in “haste” as Israel rushed out of Egypt. In our Sermon today, I would like to focus on some of these great lessons. The way that physical leaven symbolizes sin and how we should examine ourselves. Next week, I will focus on Christ Jesus as the Bread of life. Let’s begin with a Scripture.
