סוכות The next nine days are known as Sukkot...
As with anything worthy of doing, there is a point to why we are writing this blog. The main focus of this blog is centered on faith, particularly that of the Hebrews, a.k.a, Messianic Judaism, which is the original and oldest form of Christianity. Other topics will pop up from time to time, so when they do, please don’t think we’ve betrayed our “mission.” In one respect, this blog will serve as a means for us to write about our thoughts, just like in a journal. In another respect, it will help us grow by putting our ideas out there, sparking a good discussion and growing our understanding from the sharing of knowledge . Your comments are more than welcome — we value cerebral stimulation.
Another point of this blog is to “spread the good news” as we are often told to do in the gospels and elsewhere in scripture. For reasons that I can’t yet explain, it seems like I’m being called to do this. It’s a strange calling, I admit, but others before me had even stranger callings — no whale ride for me, thank you.
Now, let me point out the obvious — just because I espouse an opinion on this or that, it doesn’t mean that I’m right. Christ didn’t call us to be correct, he called us to be committed. Like you, I am human and I’ve got my share of screw ups, let me tell you. For more about me, check out my about me page. But, I warn you! I’m not really all that interesting. Please note that I am not the only writer on this blog — there are others here too.
This is a place for me to write down thoughts and ideas that will help me to better understand Yeshua (that’s Jesus) and how my life is supposed to glorify Him and Adonai. This is a place for me to express what I believe and why I believe it. This is a place for me to capture the moments of my journey in this life as I do my best to follow the greatest of the mitzvot (commandments):
“Rabbi, which of the mitzvot in the Torah is the most important?”
He told him, “You are to love Adonai your G-d with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. This is the greatest and most important mitzvah.”
~Matthew 22:36 – 38
Come along for the journey. It will be interesting, to be sure. And somehow, somewhere along the way, we can open up more hearts and minds to Yeshua and Adonai.
