Sermon: Unleavened Bread and the Holy Spirit
In the aftermath of the American 2020 election, followed by a number of unconverted persons waking up to the immorality of the concerted attacks against faith-based institutions, it is time for God's people to get their spiritual ducks in a row. In the Middle East, followers of Christ's risk the danger of decapitation; in the Western world the progressive left uses higher education, 'woke' activists, and oppressive government regulations to persecute faith-based institutions. We must re-evaluate our only partially correct understanding that removing leaven and eating unleavened bread refers merely to putting out sin. Rather, God's command to eat unleavened bread during the Days of Unleavened Bread teaches His people that He, through power and sacrifice, rescued His people from the bondage of sin, something they had no power to accomplish of themselves. God the Father hand-picks each member of the emerging God family, serving metaphorically as the Gardener, while Jesus Christ serves metaphorically as the Vine, from which God's people draw the power to bear fruits meet for repentance (Matthew 3:8). While God certainly does require His people to put sin out of their lives, He makes it equally clear that bearing fruit requires tapping into His gift of the Holy Spirit. Without remaining attached to the Vine, they can accomplish nothing (John 15:5). God's people must unconditionally yield to God's creative purpose for their lives.
