Shemini – “The Eighth”

Passover is approaching, and once again we will recite The Hallel. Of the psalms that make up The Hallel, I’ve really come to enjoy Psalm 114. The parting of the Red Sea, the encounter with God at Mt. Sinai, and the crossing of the Jordan are described pictorially, and almost humorously; “the mountains skipped like rams, the hills like lambs.”

We Must Be Active Members In Messiah’s Community

After being a follower of the Lord for 43 years, and after serving Him in full-time ministry for 38 years, it’s become crystal clear to me that it’s impossible for a person to grow to spiritual maturity apart from being an active member of a local community of Messiah’s followers. There are reasons for this: God designed us to function
