L'shanah Tovah!

Tonight Rosh Ha'shanah begins! So, Happy New Year!

We're nearing the end of Deuteronomy, and it's gotten interesting. Deuteronomy is basically Moses's Sermon on the Mount - the parallels are mind-blowing. The main watchword is ,i>if</i>. IF you do this, then God will do That. IF you keep the Torah, then God will Bless You. IF you obey God's Commandments (and..what, exactly, are they? Well.....Torah! :lol:), THEN God will bless you.

It's NOT legalism - it's how we show God our love for Him. Think of it as His Love Language - we Love Him, so we obey His commands. It's that simple - and Jesus Himself spelled that out in Matthew 5:1-20.

So - Happy New Year! May your year be Blessed!
