New Land, New Journey
On the evening of the fourteenth day of the month, while camped at Gilgal on the plains of Jericho, the Israelites celebrated the Passover. (Joshua 5:10)
This is the first time for the new generation to observe the Passover after they circumcised themselves in the new land. This new land is the land promised by God. They must observe the ritual of new life on this new land. The purpose of the ritual is to tell us that the children of God must first remember God’s salvation well each new day, each new step on the new land, in every new year. For Christians, every day is a new day. We should start with a grateful heart and count the blessings with a grateful heart.
Christians must observe Sunday as the Lord's Day on earth, to remember the salvation of the Lord Christ who rose from the dead. Christians must also observe the Lord's Supper, which was established by the Lord Jesus by His own body and blood. In 2022, a new road is unfolding in front of us, and it should be regarded as a new journey prepared by God for us. Every Sunday is the Lord’s Day. We should fully dedicate every Sunday to the Lord. We should enter God’s house every Sunday. We should worship the Lord, renewing and transforming ourselves in Christ. May God bless us that in the new journey, so that we have the testimony of renewing our lives by the Holy Spirit.
