What is Your Relationship with the Creator?
We all walk the face of this earth for a time. The Bible records the relationships, lives, and walks of many before us. Carl Foltz writes a somewhat poetic, rhythmic, account in prose of what it was like to come to know the Heart of God. For those of us not well studied in the Bible's verses, this is a panoramic account of many of the key biblical figures who appear along the Bible's time line. Encounter familiar names and take a moment to reflect that their encounters in life brought them...
To Know the Heart of God
When God made man, He made him in His own likeness. He blessed man.
''So Elohim created man in His own image, in the image of Elohim created He him; Male and female created He them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.'' (Genesis 5: 1-2)
This is a hint... a glimpse of the 'Heart of God.'
When time was right, Yochannan was sent to prepare the way. To turn the hearts of God's people back to Him... or at least, just enough to let them be aware Messiah would soon arrive, for He was coming. (Matthew 2:6)
''...for out of you will come a ruler who will be the shepherd of My people, Israel.''
God yearns for His people, those He promised and chose to be His people. He supplied a shepherd for His people. One to lead them to protection and provision — to lead them to rest and reward.

Get To Know God's Rules To Living Life
Chances are you have heard there are lots of laws (613!) that God put before Israel back on Mt. Sinai—along with those 10 commandments we keep hearing about. The Jewish community talks about Torah and following the covenant put before Israel. But what really is the Torah and how many laws are really needed? Is Torah really law, like the kind we think of in secular society, or is there something else of importance here?
And if Jews have Torah, what then of the Gentiles?
Take a minute to read another one of our 'Dave and Todd Dialogs' that addresses the role of Torah, what this is to us today, and how Jews and Gentiles can both approach God with two key commandments.

The Relationship That Is More Than Jewish and Gentile People Getting Along
This dialog on intermarried couples reveals something more profound about relationships than simply in marriage—this speaks to all of us, even singles. The body of issues addressed may offer an opportunity for serious contemplation, but the conclusion is uplifting for Jew and Gentile alike. Again, while the focus is on couples who are anticipating marriage or are presently married—there is implied a principle for a key relationship that applies to everyone.
