Do you know why the members of WMSCOG (World Mission Society Church of God) donate blood in commemoration of the Passover?
2,000 years ago, Jesus let us know the way to get eternal life:
John 6:53~57 Jesus said to them, “Very truly I tell you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day. For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in them. Just as the living Father sent me and I live because of the Father, so the one who feeds on me will live because of me.
Matt 26:17~26 On the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the disciples came to Jesus and asked, "Where do you want us to make preparations for you to eat the Passover?" He replied, "Go into the city to a certain man and tell him, 'The Teacher says: My appointed time is near. I am going to celebrate the Passover with my disciples at your house.'" So the disciples did as Jesus had directed them and prepared the Passover. … While they were eating, Jesus took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying, "Take and eat; this is my body." Then he took the cup, gave thanks and offered it to them, saying, "Drink from it, all of you. This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.
By reading the above verses. you can recognize we were given the forgiveness of sins what we'd committed in heaven(Luke 19:10, Matt 9:13) and salvation through Jesus' flesh and blood, which were allowed through the Passover bread and wine.
The Passover of the New Covenant is the day when we were given the salvation through Jesus' precious blood shed on the cross. the members of WMSCOG, therefore, donate blood in commemoration of the Passover not only to give physical life to people but also share the way to receive eternal life with people.
