SHAPING THE FUTURE
While applying for a job at a large and highly respected local trucking company, two young men wondered whether or not to tell the boss that they are Messianic Jews. With hundreds of applicants for the position offering a good salary, benefits and job security the brothers knew that talking about their faith would probably prejudice the boss against them. During the interview, with no little trepidation, they spontaneously decided to tell him the truth about their faith in the Messiah, come what may.
"So you are Messianic Jews," he grinned. "My brother is a believer just like you. He is a great guy and all the Messianic believers I have met are honest and reliable workers. The job is yours!" he exclaimed.
You can imagine the smile of surprise and relief on the faces of the two brothers. They shook hands and went to work for the company the next week.
We try to put an emphasis in our congregation on loving our people, respecting our Jewish heritage and honoring our nation. What an honor when someone recognizes the good work that Yeshua is doing in us!
These two brothers happen to be seasoned Russian immigrants to Israel. They have worked hard for many years to raise their families, learn the language and integrate into Israeli society. Like so many others, they are faithfully serving our people and contributing so much to our nation.
