“On that same night I will pass through Egypt and strike down every firstborn of both people and animals, and I will bring judgment on all the gods of Egypt. I am the Lord. 13 The blood will be a sign for you on the houses where you are, and when I see the blood, I will pass over you. No destructive plague will touch you when I strike Egypt.”
In our lives, Jesus is the passover lamb. And so just like the story of the passover, we ask God to place Jesus’ saving blood on the cross onto the doorposts of our hearts that He may protect us from death.
