I know what you’re thinking! It’s only September 30th! Well, it is the Jewish New Year. So Happy New Year! 5780. Leshana tovah tikatevee v’tichatemee. May you be written and sealed for a good new year. So what will love look like in the coming year? Well, Jesus love never changes, the same, yesterday, today and forever. What is in store for us?
Only the Lord knows for sure but we are expecting good things simply because He loves us. Love that never ends, so the beginning of a New Year, could be a good new beginning for love. Do you need love today? Of course you do? And so do I, and so does everyone really, but not all people understand true love, or show to give it or receive it.
Enter Jesus, He knows all about love. God is love. He created everyone with the capacity to love His kind of love, selfless, giving, and even forgiving. Nothing separates us from His love. So why do we want to confuse it? God is the author of peace, and His banner is the marriage canopy ( chuppah ) over us.
He has brought me to the banqueting table and His banner over me is love. He is getting ready to return. The Marriage Supper of the Lamb to His beloved, figurative bride the church, is ahead. What a wonderful love that would be in the New Year.
Ionos zoe, eternal life in eternal love. I’m looking forward to it. So if you don’t know Jesus as Lord, now is the time to receive His precious love. What could love look like in the New Year? It looks like Jesus! Love is not the reality shows or silly and poor excuses for romance movies. There are a few good ones, but most are lacking.
Jesus is tender and loving. He is not just the baby in the manger. He grew into a man that gave His life for us, if we would believe. That sounds simple doesn’t it? It was meant to be. I think we have complicated love. We put our ideas on it and tend to look at people, who are flawed, instead of the one who is flawless.
So when you start to look at Jesus, you see thing differently, with His eyes. I hope we will all soon be looking into those eyes of love throughout eternity. But until we can let’s focus on Him now and see what love looks like in the New Year. It looks like Jesus!
……looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith…..Hebrews 12:2
I might have an apple myself, and I have cooked zimmes, it i so good. Enjoy my Hebraic Study board, I added New Year cards and food. And please to the shofar, what believers will hear at the Rapture or catching away of the church.
