Yom Kippur



Sunset September 27, 2020

begins

the Jewish day of

Yom Kippur.



It is the holiest day of the Jewish year.

~

It occurs 10 days after Rosh Hashanah.


The days between

Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur

are called the Days of Awe.


~ ~ ~


As believers in Jesus,

we do not

have to

celebrate

the Jewish feast days.


Yet, I learn a lot from understanding

the Jewishness of the Bible.

Yom Kippur


Yom Kippur is about repentance.

It is a day that highlights to the Jews that they need to be RIGHT with GOD.

For Christians:

Romans 10:1 tells us that God wants us to pray that the Jewish people not only seek God the Father, but that they recognize and accept Jesus and his sacrifice for their sins.



For me, repentance takes my mind to the cross.

I remember an old hymn that said, “Jesus, keep me near the cross.”

God has shown me the wisdom

of staying near the cross.


I want to stay near the cross.

I want to keep a tender heart that easily asks for forgiveness from my Heavenly Father.

I want to be like David –

who was a man after God’s heart.

- -

I cry out as David did,

“Create in me a clean heart, O God;

and renew a right spirit within me.”

Psalm 51:10




In Closing

Here is that Great Hymn

called

"Near the Cross"




LYRICS by Fanny Crosby


Jesus, keep me near the cross,
There a precious fountain
Free to all, a healing stream
Flows from Calvary’s mountain.

Refrain

In the cross, in the cross,
Be my glory ever;
Till my raptured soul shall find
Rest beyond the river.

Near the cross, a trembling soul,
Love and mercy found me;
There the bright and morning star
Sheds its beams around me.

Refrain

Near the cross! O Lamb of God,
Bring its scenes before me;
Help me walk from day to day,
With its shadows o’er me.

Refrain

Near the cross I’ll watch and wait
Hoping, trusting ever,
Till I reach the golden strand,
Just beyond the river.

Refrain
