Weekly Encouragement

Now may the G-d of shalom, who brought up from the dead the great Shepherd of the sheep by the blood of an everlasting covenant, our L-rd Yeshua, make you complete in every good thing to do His will, accomplishing in us what is pleasing in His sight, through Messiah Yeshua. To Him be the glory forever and ever. Amen.

-Hebrews 13:20-21

As Passover approaches, we meditate upon the sacrifice of Messiah Yeshua. His love for us is overwhelming and His life, freely given, reconciles us to the G-d of shalom. As much as His death reveals the depth of His love for us, how much more so does His resurrection reveal His power. That which is impossible for man is accomplished through the great might of Adonai. That same Spirit that conquered death itself resides within each believer for the purpose of accomplishing His will. May we view this Passover season through that lens of hope and purpose.
