Pesach a time for Spring Cleaning!

Exodus 12:19 ‘Seven days there shall be no leaven found in your houses; for whoever eats what is leavened, that person shall be cut off from the congregation of Israel, whether he is an alien or a native of the land. 

Leaven, is also called Chametz.     

So, what is Chametz?

Chametz is “leaven” or

any food that’s made of grain and water that have been allowed to ferment and “rise.” Bread, cereal, cake, cookies, pizza, pasta, and beer are blatant examples of chametz; but any food that contains grain or grain derivatives can be, and often is, chametz. Practically speaking, any processed food that is not certified “Kosher for Passover

may potentially include chametz ingredients.”

 Fire cleanses. Fire burns away your self-fabricated image. Fire humbles you. Fire strips away your fabricated clothes, consumes the dirt and leaves you cleansed and free, so Jesus can clothe you with His humble garments. Fire is what we need. Ask for the fire of God. Do it. Take the time.
Ask God!
Love is as a fire that burns right through the harness of self-defense. Love makes ice-cold pride melt. You need this love. Without it you are empty, without it you do not have what God wants you to have.
