Yesterday, at our Shabbat service, the congregational leader spoke about what it is to be a talmid (disciple) of Yeshua. If you would like to hear it, you can listen to the message HERE.
What struck me from the message yesterday was a statement our congregational leader quoted from Dr. David Flusser, a foremost expert of Early Christianity and Judaism of the Second Temple period. He said:
Any Christian that tells me he is a disciple of Jesus but does not read the four Gospels at least once a month is a liar!
I don’t know about you, but this sounds like a challenge to me! 🙂 So this week, we are going to focus on listening to the words of our Rabbi Yeshua. The goal is to read through and/or listen to the four gospels at least one time this week. And let us not be hearers only, but faithful doers. (James 1:22-25)
I leave you with these words of our Messiah to ponder:
Everyone who comes to Me and hears My words and does them, I will show you what he is like: he is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when a flood arose, the stream broke against that house and could not shake it, because it had been well built. But the one who hears and does not do them is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. When the stream broke against it, immediately it fell, and the ruin of that house was great.” (Luke 6:47-49)
Shalom and have a blessed week!
