To The Cross and Shoftim – JLD

Everything I once held dear, I count it all as loss, because Your blood was spilled for my ransom. Bring me to my knees, lay me down, rid me of myself, and lead me Your cross. Praise and worship was powerful as always, after which our special guest Rabbi Arthur Melendez from Waco, along with his companions, brought forth some powerful words. Brother Rodriguez read some poems, one of which reminded us that God has given us ears to hear and eyes to see… use all of your senses. We also recalled how God said the same rule shall apply to the sojourner (Non-Jew), as the Native (Israel), so do not think we are held to different standards. Then from Shoftim, Judges, Deuteronomy 16:18 – 21:9, we learned to not pervert justice, by taking bribes or showing partiality, but rather embrace justice, obedience, and unity.
