Holy Days = Holidays

How are you using THIS holiday?

But wait, there’s more.

Spring break!! Our holidays are sometimes devoid of spiritual significance. Jewish holidays were truly holy days.

Passover – the promised sacrificial Lamb. 

Unleaved bread – “root out” the leaven (sin)

Firstfruits – giving our first and best, and a sign of more to come (c.f. 1 Cor. 15:23)

Pentecost – the harvest of the firstfruits – thanking God!

Those were the Spring holidays for them. Summer came and went, and then September/October ended their time of bounty. Then, it was the rainy season and a time to reflect on how good God was to them.

That’s what today is about – the Fall feasts. We have plenty to be thankful for.
