Exodus 12:1-14

1 And the LORD spoke unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying, 2 "This month shall be unto you the beginning of months; it shall be the first month of the year to you. 3 Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, `On the tenth day of this month they shall take for themselves every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for a house. 4 And if the household be too little for the lamb, let him and his neighbor next unto his house take it according to the number of the souls; every man according to his eating shall make your count for the lamb. 5 Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year; ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats. 6 And ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same month, and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening. 7 And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses wherein they shall eat it. 8 And they shall eat the flesh in that night, roasted with fire; and with unleavened bread and with bitter herbs they shall eat it. 9 Eat not of it raw, nor boiled at all with water, but roasted with fire -- his head with his legs and with the viscera thereof. 10 And ye shall let nothing of it remain until the morning, and that which remaineth of it until the morning ye shall burn with fire. 11 And thus shall ye eat it: with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and ye shall eat it in haste; it is the LORD'S Passover. 12 For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am the LORD. 13 And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are; and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you when I smite the land of Egypt.

14 "`And this day shall be unto you for a memorial, and ye shall keep it a feast to the LORD throughout your generations; ye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance for ever.

Psalm 116 

1 I love the LORD, because He hath heard my voice and my supplications. 
2 Because He hath inclined His ear unto me, therefore will I call upon Him as long as I live.

3 The sorrows of death encompassed me, and the pains of hell got hold upon me; 
I found trouble and sorrow. 
4 Then I called upon the name of the LORD:
"O LORD, I beseech Thee, deliver my soul!"

5 Gracious is the LORD and righteous; 
yea, our God is merciful. 
6 The LORD preserveth the simple; 
I was brought low, and He helped me. 
7 Return unto thy rest, O my soul, 
for the LORD hath dealt bountifully with thee. 
8 For Thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling. 
9 I will walk before the LORD in the land of the living.

10 I believed, therefore have I spoken: "I was greatly afflicted." 
11 I said in my haste, "All men are liars."

12 What shall I render unto the LORD for all His benefits toward me? 
13 I will take the cup of salvation and call upon the name of the LORD. 
14 I will pay my vows unto the LORD 
now, in the presence of all His people.

15 Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of His saints. 
16 O LORD, truly I am Thy servant; 
I am Thy servant and the son of Thine handmaid; 
Thou hast loosed my bonds. 
17 I will offer to Thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, 
and will call upon the name of the LORD. 
18 I will pay my vows unto the LORD 
now in the presence of all His people, 
19 in the courts of the LORD's house, in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem. 
Praise ye the LORD!

1 Corinthians 11:23-26

23 For I have received from the Lord that which also I delivered unto you: that the Lord Jesus, the same night in which He was betrayed, took bread; 24 and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, "Take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of Me." 25 In the same manner also He took the cup when He had supped, saying, "This cup is the new testament in My blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of Me." 26 For as often as ye eat this bread and drink this cup, ye do show the Lord's death until He come. 

Words of Worship - John 13:34

A new commandment I give unto you: that ye love one another, as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. 

John 13:1-20

1 Now before the Feast of the Passover, when Jesus knew that His hour had come that He should depart out of this world unto the Father, having loved His own who were in the world, He loved them unto the end. 2 And supper being ended, and the devil having now put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, to betray Him, 3 Jesus, knowing that the Father had given all things into His hands and that He had come from God and was going to God, 4 rose from supper and laid aside His garments, and took a towel and girded Himself. 5 After that He poured water into a basin, and began to wash the disciples' feet and to wipe them with the towel wherewith He was girded. 6 Then came He to Simon Peter, and Peter said unto Him, "Lord, dost Thou wash my feet?" 7 Jesus answered and said unto him,

"What I do thou knowest not now, but thou shalt know hereafter."

8 Peter said unto Him, "Thou shalt never wash my feet." Jesus answered him,

"If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with Me."

9 Simon Peter said unto Him, "Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head." 10 Jesus said to him,

"He that is washed needeth not but to wash his feet, but is clean every whit. And ye are clean, but not all."

11 (For He knew who would betray Him; therefore He said, "Ye are not all clean.")

12 So after He had washed their feet and had taken His garments and had sat down again, He said unto them,

"Know ye what I have done to you? 13 Ye call Me Master and Lord; and ye say well, for so I am. 14 If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet, ye also ought to wash one another's feet. 15 For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you. 16 Verily, verily I say unto you, the servant is not greater than his lord, neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him. 17 If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them.

18 "I speak not of you all. I know whom I have chosen; but that the Scripture may be fulfilled, `He that eateth bread with Me hath lifted up his heel against Me.' 19 Now I tell you before it come that, when it is come to pass, ye may believe that I am He. 20 Verily, verily I say unto you, he that receiveth whomsoever I send, receiveth Me; and he that receiveth Me, receiveth Him that sent Me."

Words of Wisdom - Ecclesiastes 8:1

Who is as the wise man? And who knoweth the interpretation of a thing? 
A man's wisdom maketh his face to shine, and the boldness of his face shall be changed.

Jesus Speaks Morals & Values - Luke 11:52

Woe unto you, lawyers! For ye have taken away the key of knowledge. Ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in, ye hindered."
