The Disciples of Jesus were sent to prepare for the Passover. This included destroying any yeast or leavened bread found in the home, as yeast was considered a symbol of impurity. As we prepare for Easter let us cleanse our body which is temple of the Holy Spirit of any traces of impurity.
An Exercise: Starting from your head going right down to your toes, see which area is your ‘greatest’ weakness at this moment of time. Pick up just one: Example. Eyes: Seeing things you shouldn’t or Stomach: gluttony and so on. Now, replace that impurity with its opposite: Eyes: Looking out for goodness; Mouth: When you see goodness, mention it… and so on.
Prayer: Lord, Wash away all my evil and make me clean from my sin! (Ps 51:2)
