Passover Pieces

I know very little about Jewish culture, religion or history.  I do, however, have many Jewish friends.  I understand that Passover, is as important as the Holy Week events Christians celebrate.  I wanted to share with you what I’ve found, in hopes that you; like me, are a spiritual seeker!

Passover (in Hebrew, Pesach) commemorates the exodus of the Jews from slavery in Egypt. The holiday originated in the Torah, where the word pesach refers to the ancient Passover sacrifice (known as the Paschal Lamb); it is also said to refer to the idea that God “passed over” (pasach) the houses of the Jews during the 10th plague on the Egyptians, the slaying of the first born. The holiday is ultimately a celebration of freedom, and the story of the exodus from Egypt is a powerful metaphor that is appreciated not only by Jews, but by people of other faiths as well.

Random Pieces

Today, I found a two sided piece of paper;  it fluttered from somewhere and landed behind my desk.  There are a few scribblings and a date of 12/4/2013.

These exact kind of notes were the reason behind “The Pieces” book.  I wanted to share what God had shown me, inspired revelations that carried me from bad and sorrowful moments in time, to joy filled and peaceful days.

A few of my ramblings:

2 Peter 3:18 SPIRITUAL GROWTH:  Read scripture, apply the truth.  Admit and assume responsibility for failure.  Commit to change.

Philippians:  Joy, is a calm delight from God.  The worldview of joy is “happiness is based on what happens,” but joy, in reality – is the fruit of the Holy Spirit.

Paul was in jail during this time, he remembers people in his prayers; he thanks God for his situation, he encourages others.

Ephesians 2:15 (my take):  It’s a harsh world for those who are not believers in Christ.  I was under a terrible impression or just didn’t want to see – that the most noble and good people are still not of God.  They are still on the wrong side.  It’s not my place to judge, but do I have responsibility of those I love to save their soul?  You bet!
