Today, I visited a new church that is held in a local Jewish Temple. I felt a nudge from the Lord to find a church that is centered on the authority and truth of God’s Word, where salvation comes from being born again, by accepting Jesus as you Lord and Savior alone. The Bible says we must be ‘born again’, in fact Jesus himself said it in John 3:1-10. We do not get ‘saved’ by attending church, being baptized as a baby, or serving faithfully in our church.
In fact, Jesus was quite clear that good works cannot save you, we cannot ‘earn our way’ into Heaven. It is through accepting His free gift of grace, by His dying on the cross and shedding his blood for our sins, and rising from the dead, that we have eternal life. Romans 3:24. No other way. Not Buddha, not crystals, not worshiping the moon or stars, or another false religion. Jesus said, “I am the Way, the Truth and the Light, no one comes to the Father, but through me.” John 14:6.
So this morning, as I worshiped with the light stemming through the menorah in the stained glass window, the symbol of light for the Jewish people, I felt like I had come home. As a Jewish believer in Jesus, I love Israel and the Jewish people. God has given me a burden to share their Messiah, Yeshua, (Jesus in Hebrew) with them whenever possible. I have studied Hebrew, volunteered with Jews for Jesus, and shared the gospel in Jerusalem. Don’t forget, Jesus was a Jew, who came for the “lost sheep of the house of Israel.” Matthew 15:24.
To further share my faith and testify of God’s healing power, I am now writing my life story which encompasses my travels as an evangelist to the Jewish people. It has a new title: Becoming Miriam: A Life Transformed by God.
I just returned from Mount Hermon’s Christian Writers Conference in the Santa Cruz mountains of Califrornia. There I received good feedback and direction on how to finish and publish my book. I am thrilled my book is almost complete, a 21/2 year journey of hard work and trust. I believe it will bring healing and truth to many who are searching for the Healer himself. My message is that God can heal the most broken heart or wounded life, just like he did mine. “For He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.” Psalm 147:3.

If you need to find Jesus for yourself, you can pray the prayer below to be born again:
I admit I am a sinner and am in need of forgiveness. I believe you died on the cross for me personally and that you were raised from the dead and are in heaven right now. I ask you into my heart to take control of my life and to be my Lord and Savior. Thank you for loving me enough to lead me to repentance and show me my need for you. Help me become the person you intend for me to become and may your plan for my life happen. I love you Lord and thank you for forgiving me today and giving me the gift of eternal life with you. Amen.
After praying this prayer, it is important to tell someone else you prayed the salvation prayer, find a Bible teaching church and attend, and read your Bible every day. If you can’t afford a Bible, many churches will give you one for free. Leave me a message and tell me you are now born-again 🙂
