… and the Lord will give you insight into all this.   2 Timothy 2:7 Paul gives Timothy some instruction on enduring hardships and then tells him to think about it. Mull it over. It was a hard teaching but Paul assures his young disciple that God will provide insight if he reflects on those truths. It strikes me that there Continue Reading #Jewish_History_Culture #On_my_mind #2_Timothy_2_7 #Insight #WTWN_org

This is the message we have heard from Him and proclaim to you, that God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all. 1 John 1:5 Sitting in our fellowship group many years ago, I listened to my pastor teaching from 1 John. There were several references to light and it seemed a prominent theme. I was excited. Continue Reading #Jewish_History_Culture #1_john_1_5 #Apollo #Artemis #WTWN_org

Watching kids in costume is great fun this time of year. Some dress as their heroes or what they want to be when they grow up. They play act as their character and become someone new. Maybe those who save the day with a cardboard sword, or leap into action to stop a crime, will one day use those dreams Continue Reading #Holidays_and_Feasts #On_my_mind #2_Peter_1_5_7 #Aspire #WTWN_org

How many grains of sand can you hold in your hand? Can we imagine a number big enough to hold the number of granules on a single beach? I recently enjoyed some time camping and relaxing on the beach. It was beautiful. But the sand literally surrounds you Continue Reading #On_my_mind #Bless #blessing #numerous #Psalm_40_5 #WTWN_org

O Lord, the Hope (Mikveh) of Israel, all who forsake You shall be put to shame; those who turn away from You shall be written in the earth, for they have forsaken the Lord, the fountain of living water. Jeremiah 17:13 The prophet Jeremiah reminds the people of Israel that God alone is their hope. The word translated hope in this passage has the same root Continue Reading #Jewish_History_Culture #hope #Jeremiah_17_13 #jesus #WTWN_org

John, the priest and prophet, stood at the Jordan River and called people to repentance. If they returned to God, cleansing was available. Last week the purification rite of mikveh was introduced. Becoming ritually clean could involve full immersion; or it may involve touching or sprinkling the same way God instructed the priests to sprinkle the sacrificial blood on the Continue Reading #Jewish_History_Culture #1_John_1_7 #Baptism #blood #WTWN_org

Ritual purity laws in the Bible are somewhat of a mystery to us today. Yet in them we see beautiful pictures of God’s provision. It is God who decides what is unclean and what is clean. The ritual cleansing to get from one to the other is called micveh and it must be done with living water. Living water is Continue Reading #Jewish_History_Culture #Bath #clean #Living_water #Mikveh #WTWN_org

There is a rabbinic story from the middle ages that talks about a young Jewish disciple’s observation of the monastic movement. He sees the monks going off into a solitary, ascetic life to know God better. In his own pursuit of God, he asks his rabbi about this practice and perhaps if he should commit to a similar life. The Continue Reading #Jewish_History_Culture #belly_button #Community #connected #WTWN_org

We have been trying to hide and cover our bodies since Eden. We fear that someone may see us as we actually are, naked and imperfect. The mirror at the salon, with hair pulled back and bright lights shining, reveals my true face. It’s easier to imagine an airbrushed look when not forced to gaze at my reflection. But the Continue Reading #On_my_mind #Covered #Hebrews_4_13 #Hidden #Hide #WTWN_org
