Luke 22:8. Jesus sent Peter and John, saying, “Go and prepare the Passover for us to eat.” 

We hosted a Seder or Passover meal in a large church.  People signed up for dishes to cook with furnished recipes.  The also had to sign up for specific chores.  Part of the Jewish preparation was to thoroughly clean their houses while they made sure there was nothing with leven in the house.  Leven, or yeast, makes everything it’s in grow.  The church had never been so clean as people cleaned closets, cabinets, drawers and scrubbed floors.  Sin is a leavening agent in our lives.  This is a good time to ask God’s Holy Spirit to reveal to us areas where we have allowed the leven of sin to enter and affect our thinking and actions.  It only takes a little leven to make a loaf of bread rise.  It only takes one little wrong thought I us to tarnish the image of our Lord reflecting in us.  Our question is will we open our minds up to what God would reveal to us?
