Deut 6:6 Writing Commandments or Mitzvahs on Our Heart
Today on Bible verse.
I wonder if wonder with me I'll be right on your part right because if you look in Deuteronomy 6. After we talked about this a couple episodes here oh Israel, the Lord our God is one Lord, and then it says and you shall love the Lord by God with all thine heart and with all mine soul and with all on my and then it says about today is in these words which I command this day shall be in thine heart, well, really, really, from the look at that verse in Hebrew. From my perspective is writing on our heart is not something that we just currently know how to do and so to look at this in Hebrew really gives us some insight that I think is absolutely beautiful and you know he saying essentially and we know that as we come to Christ that you know his laws can be written in our heart.
How exactly does that work well. The word for laws or the word that you know he says I command that these words of these commandments be written in your heart will that word in Hebrew is mitzvah you might've heard it that there are 620 mitzvah is that the Jews follow and then the word means commandments. Of course there's original 10 Commandments. Those are mitzvah's to the word mitzvah is just a phenomenal word and I thought we spent a lot of time on it this morning. It might help us to see how we actually write these on our heart is to actually know what were riding on our hearts which are literally mitzvah's so the beautiful thing about the word mitzvah. As you can hear that mama sound that is a ma'am which you're going to find that letter the beginning of Messiah. I see you get idea that it's Jesus it's also that the beginning of the word water because he's the living water and heat.
It means Torah as well. It means the Bible so it's a beautiful thing when you think about this moment M sound. You also find it at the end of the word shalom right you have that M sound because again a lot of the piece.
The word shalom means peace comes from having these commandments in our hearts and it's an amazing thing that is we asked Jesus to come into our heart, he brings the word with him. He does because he is the word, and so how we actually get these mitzvah's into our hearts is his first and foremost by inviting Jesus into your heart by me that when he comes, he brings the word really because he is the word, and he is the living water, so you get springs of living water to get a commodity or heart right and the woman on the well. As he explained that so it's absolutely beautiful that the beginning of the word command is in fact Jesus the letter Mem and and and all the things that he is so that gets is and it gets in our heart.
The next letter I just this time year just wows me because it is as naughty, which we talked about before means tree, but it also means righteous at and so you know Jesus died on a tree that we would be righteous okay and so these commands are what brings righteousness and and and so Jesus right when he comes in he brings his righteousness you put on the blessed the breast plate of righteousness. That's is Addie and that's that letter and when you look at it. It looks like a tree literally the word tree begins with that letter is Addie is well so it has everything to do with the tree always points in a right angle is trying to get to the sun matter what the situation is it's trying to do what's right in a right angle is just it's all part of the deal so you get this ma'am and then you get righteousness so you get Jesus's righteousness, and then evolve and that love means that this literally is like Jacob's ladder is coming down from heaven, so here's this beautiful thing. Jesus is righteousness coming down from heaven, and then sound at the end of that is a hey which means to hold it. It literally is means expression, and so on mitzvah is an expression of Jesus's righteousness coming down from heaven, so our hearts become an expression of Jesus's righteousness coming down from heaven. When we write these mitzvah's on our heart, made possible by that temple curtain being torn into the Jesus would enter into your holy of holies someone about today on Bible wonders
