1. Household Fellowship

 “‘Tell all the congregation of Israel that on the tenth day of this month every man shall take a lamb according to their fathers’ houses, a lamb for a household. And if the household is too small for a lamb, then he and his nearest neighbour shall take according to the number of persons; according to what each can eat you shall make your count for the lamb…’ Then they shall take some of the blood and put it on the two doorposts and the lintel of the houses in which they eat it,” (Exodus 12:3 to 4 and 7 ESV).

   “This is what the Lord has commanded: ‘Gather of it, each one of you, as much as he can eat. You shall each take an omer, according to the number of the persons that each of you has in his tent.’ …Morning by morning they gathered it, each as much as he could eat; but when the sun grew hot, it melted, “(Exodus 16:16 and 21 ESV).

   In Exodus 12, the Lord commanded the Israelites on how every household must gather and eat the Passover Lamb. Then concerning the collection of the manna in Exodus 16, the Lord instructed that every Israelite must gather the manna according to the number of persons in his house. These two scriptures speak about the feeding of the Israelites which would first result in their satisfaction, and then, in their growth. In these two scriptures, the Lord stressed the participation of all the members of the household. Regarding the Passover Lamb, the Lord said, “Every man shall take a lamb according to their fathers’ houses, A LAMB FOR A HOUSEHOLD.” Then about the manna, He said, “According to the number of the persons that each of YOU HAS IN HIS TENT.” This shows the Lord’s interest in the satisfaction and the growth of every household.

   In First Corinthians 5:7b Apostle Paul says, “For indeed Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed for us,” (NKJV). Then John 6:58 states, “This is the bread which came down from heaven – not as your fathers ate the manna, and are dead. He who eats this bread will live forever,” (NKJV). These verses reveal that Christ in typology is both the Passover Lamb and the manna the Israelites ate in the wilderness. As the Israelites gathered, every man and his household to eat the Passover Lamb and to gather the manna, so must every believing household gather and eat Christ as the Passover Lamb and gather Him as the manna for both the satisfaction of our soul and our growth in the Christian life.

   As I have said before, so shall I say now: every household should have a fabulous time either in the morning or in the evening for meeting purposely to enjoy Christ for their satisfaction and for their growth spiritually! Every household must meet and admonish one another in the word, in prayer, so also in psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs (Colossians 3:16). Through the meeting of household, we will supply Christ to one another and be edified.
