today’s thought *yom kippur*

Yom Kippur

The day that is known as the Day of Atonement.

Why is it such an important day along with fasting?

It is the day where God decides whether you are in or out of the Book of Life according to Judaism.

It all begins ten days earlier at Rosh Hashana. After the holiday starts The Ten Days of Awe. In these ten days, people evaluate their deeds and figure out whether they have done enough good or what not so that they can know that they are in the Book of Life.

Looked a little different in the Old Testament, but still the same principles.

What a joy I have that my assurance is not in what I do, but what Christ has done on the cross. Every day I can go before the Lord and seek forgiveness and see His amazing love and kindness. My salvation is through the grace of God through faith {Ephesians 2:8-9}. Jesus was my full atonement-Hallelujah, what a Savior!
