Exodus 11:10

10 And Moses and Aaron did all these wonders before Pharaoh; and the LORD hardened Pharaoh's heart, so that he would not let the children of Israel go out of his land.

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!

Words of Worship - John 10:27

My sheep hear My voice, and I know them and they follow Me.

Matthew 12:1-8

1 At that time, Jesus went on the Sabbath day through the corn; and His disciples were hungry and began to pluck the ears of corn and to eat. 2 But when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto Him, "Behold, thy disciples do that which is not lawful to do upon the Sabbath day." 3 But He said unto them,

"Have ye not read what David did when he hungered and they that were with him: 4 how he entered into the house of God and ate the showbread, which was not lawful for him to eat, neither for those who were with him, but only for the priests? 5 Or have ye not read in the law how on the Sabbath days the priests in the temple profane the Sabbath and are blameless? 6 But I say unto you, that in this place is One greater than the temple. 7 But if ye had known what this meaneth, `I will have mercy and not sacrifice,' ye would not have condemned the guiltless. 8 For the Son of Man is Lord even of the Sabbath day."

Words of Wisdom - Wisdom of Solomon 5:14

For the hope of the ungodly is like dust that is blown away with the wind, 
like a thin froth that is driven away with the storm, 
as the smoke which is dispersed here and there with a tempest, 
and passeth away as the remembrance of a guest that tarrieth but a day.

Jesus Speaks Morals & Values - Matthew 7:13-14

"Enter ye in at the strait gate, for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there be who go in thereat. Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
