Shabbat Shalom. In Gonder at Timket last year I came across this Priest before the ceremony began. His face said it all. Call it a gentle yet determined peace that left me astounded and inspired and asking “how do I represent my Fatih….my own walk….the God I serve? In my everyday life in every minute am I an accurate representation of or an emissary of Yeshua the Messiah. Am I really the Shalom of God to ALL around me….? Are “Christians” striving for the right things in our lives? Are we really all about developing the nature of Yeshua and the fruits of the spirit? Are our development goals consistent with Galatians 5:22 and the fruits of the spirit we should be striving to have? The “prosperity” you should be seeking is spiritual and benefits others and not yourself in the physical ways you’ve been led to believe and seek. Realizing this will take you a very, very long way in your spiritual pursuits. The needy are all around you…the orphans, children in foster care, woman who have been victims of violence and gender discrimination and abuse. The elderly, the cancer patient, the diabetic, the HIV-AIDS survivor, the sex worker seeking to change and be greeted without stigma, the unwed mother, the depressed, the scorned and the disenfranchised….they all are your human family and the way you preach the gospel is to get out of your comfort zone and serve them, without hesitation…without question. This is “The Way” and a “Living Faith” we should be striving to live every minute of our lives. #ethiopia #ethiopian #ethiopianorthodox #ethiopianorthodoxchurch #ethiopianorthodoxtewahedochurch #christianity #orthodox #orthodoxy #asianorthodoxy #theway #Yeshua #shabbatshalom #livingfaith #praxis #walkthewalktalkthetalk
