divine sparks within us all

Torah Sparks will engage the books of Moses in a way that allows the text to come alive for contemporary spirituality.  Deeply rooted in a Torah Conscious Messianic faith, each week’s lesson seeks to create a motivation for daily practice and to acquire the tools needed to live a spiritually meaningful life.  As followers of Yeshua, our souls yearn to feel connected to something bigger and greater than ourselves and to know joy despite personal suffering and need.  Each one of us has been created in the image of God, but so often the sparks of God’s light within us is covered with so much of the darkness and brokenness we experience around us.  The Torah provides a way to unleash those divine sparks and to connect with God, His Messiah, and others in a way never before possible.

A second component to Torah Sparks is to begin each class with a commentary on Yeshua’s words in Matthew 22:37-40.  In this passage, when the Master from Nazareth was asked what was the most important thing to know in the entire Bible, Yeshua answered, “Love God.  Love your neighbor as yourself.  Everything else hangs on these two things.”  All 54 portions of the Torah vividly describe for us how to love our neighbor as ourselves.  Thus, each week’s class will begin by highlighting how that particular portion is teaching us to love our neighbor.  As we do this, we’ll see what Yeshua saw in the Torah that caused him to say, “everything else hangs on this.”  Loving our neighbor involves much more than is often thought.  By studying how to love our neighbor, we’ll learn how to implement Torah principles into our everyday lives and be able to navigate the waters of speech, business, parenting, teaching, rebuking, marriage, revenge, difficult people, and more.  Yeshua linked loving God with loving neighbor, thus how we love our neighbor is the practical, flesh and bones, rubber hitting the road way we love God!
