Every year the Israelites gathered to celebrate God’s deliverance from bondage. Israel was to become a nation under God. “This day will become a memorial for you, and you will celebrate it as a festival to the LORD—you will celebrate the feast perpetually as a lasting ordinance.” (Exodus 12:14) Israel achieved independence solely through her dependence on the Lord. Today we celebrate God’s blessing on our freedom, one nation, under God and ever dependent on Him.
