This Saturday morning, as we were rushing out of the house earlier than we ever did to attend church on Sabbath (Saturday) morning, I realized how much joy I would be missing if I were still there – or if I was lying around in my P.J.’s till 2 p.m. like we did in the Hebrew Roots Movement. We had Sabbath-keeping down to a science – just as the Israelites were told to stay in their tents and not cook, we managed to follow those guidelines pretty well. We really did REST, and only met for fellowship in the evening. We were pretty righteous.
Today, I can’t tell you what we did, because then I’d lose my reward, but I have to say, nothing in life has given me more joy than what I am doing now, nor have I ever seen God move in more amazing ways. We are back to meeting on Saturday evenings like we used to, with our present ministry fellowship group, after a long day of …. work. God provided more today for what we do, than we have room to even store, or time to sort. In one day! What a waste it was to sit around and pride ourselves on how right we were. This was not the obedience God desired, or blessed. We were left spiritually dying, in agony – cold, hard, without compassion. Now we are like trees planted by the water and He is with us and sustaining us. People can argue all day in words about what obedience is, what God wants from us, and how wrong Christians are for not observing the Torah as given to Moses. But I have walked in Torah, and I have walked with Jesus, and there is such a big difference, words become pointless. It’s like having had McDonalds all your life, then being invited to a steak dinner. Some people are addicted to the junk and don’t want the steak. But I say… pass me the garlic butter and a knife. I’m too busy to even proof read this so my apologies. Praying for more time to share.
