A Better You
It’s about being a better person and, yes, pleasing our King. The King that God anointed prayed for better understanding so that he could observe and keep God’s Torah.
Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart; and you will find rest for your souls.Matthew 11:29
Little children, let no one lead you astray. He who does righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.1 John 3:7
This is understandable by children. Doing righteousness (as taught in Torah) is righteous. Good is good. I can’t tell you how many preachers speak against Torah. How can we have success in following Christ if the preachers send us the other way?
Be a humble servant
Let Jesus be your rabbi. He followed Torah and his disciples walk after Him. If we sin, He is our advocate, but by no means should we seek to disdain Torah.
Pray for understanding in walking it out in your own life.
Father in heaven. Thank you for your Torah. I receive with joy, your instructions in the Bible, for my life. Give me understanding to better observe, guard, and keep your instructions. Amen.
