Title of the Blog
November 30, 2010

The title of this blog, “New Shalom” is based on of Lacrae’s “Rehab” album. The song New Shalom is about the new peace we as believers have with Christ by His new covenant with the Church(Ephesians 2:14-16: “For He Himself is our peace, who made both groups into one and broke down the barrier of the dividing wall by abolishing in His flesh the enmity, which is the Law of commandments contained in ordinances, so that in Himself He might make the two into one new man, thus establishing peace, and might reconcile them both in one body to God through the cross, by it having put to death the enmity.”

We no longer are enemies of God but have a right relationship with Him by the peace that Jesus Christ brings through His death on a cross. I thought it would be appropriate to name my blog, that is based on my adventures in Israel, on a Hebrew word that not only is a greeting in the Jewish culture but means peace, the peace that only Christ brings us.

I am counting down the days to when I leave for Israel…which is on January 22, 2011

I am so blessed God has provided for me to have this opportunity, it is a once in a lifetime chance. I can’t wait to see the Bible come alive!
