How Dan Sered, an Israeli, Found Love and Messiah at the Same Time
July 10, 2017
Author: Dan Sered

I was born in Israel on the holiest of Jewish festivals, Yom Kippur,” the Day of Atonement. I believe God has had His hand on me ever since, to show His grace and wonderful mercy. I grew up in a secular home where we followed all the traditions and kept the holidays, but these observances […]

Hope for a new year

Hope for a New Year
December 15, 2016
Author: David Brickner

As we start the year with fresh hope, it seems like the odds are stacked against us. According to a recent U.S. News & World Report study, eighty percent of New Year’s resolutions are bound to fail. Even in light of that number, I’m not a cynic—I’m an optimist. But my hope is grounded in […]

Weird
November 16, 2016
Author: David Brickner

  “You’re weird!” she blurted out to me. I was in the fifth grade and was trying to win a young girl’s affection. Her remark assaulted my confidence, so I slunk away hot-faced with embarrassment. I thought about this incident recently when I participated in a special Jews for Jesus outreach in New York City. One […]

September 22, 2016
Author: David Brickner

With the World Series coming up, some might wonder if by “triple play” I mean that most rare event that makes baseball fans cheer ecstatically. I am an avid fan, but I’m actually referring to a Jewish triple play—because it’s rare that all three of the Fall Feasts of Israel occur in the month of October. Don’t worry, I’m not going to pronounce the end of the world… though there is plenty of prophetic significance to these feasts.

Hurt, humility and honor
August 29, 2016
Author: David Brickner

One of my favorite Bible stories is the unlikely tale of two lives unexpectedly entwined through terrible tragedy and profound desperation. It’s a story of surprising twists and transforming faith, and you’ll find it in 2 Kings, chapter 5. The story opens with Naaman, commander of the Syrian army, and a young Israeli servant.

Loving the Gospel
March 23, 2016
Author: David Brickner

I recently asked our Jews for Jesus leadership team to be intentional in finding ways to encourage one another, recognizing that we live in an age of cynicism. We agreed that we want to consciously guard against that culture seeping into our own hearts and communities, and to help one another remember that it “should not be so among us.”
