New Beginnings

Genesis 1:1-5

1In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2Now the earth was chaos and waste, darkness was on the surface of the deep, and the Ruach Elohim was hovering upon the surface of the water. 3Then God said, “Let there be light!” and there was light. 4God saw that the light was good. So God distinguished the light from the darkness. 5God called the light “day,” and the darkness He called “night.” So there was evening and there was morning—one day.

Genesis 2:1-3

1So the heavens and the earth were completed along with their entire array. 2God completed, on the seventh day, His work that He made, and He ceased, on the seventh day, from all His work that He made. 3Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, for on it He ceased from all His work that God created for the purpose of preparing.

Lamentations 3:20-24

20Whenever I remember, my soul is downcast within me. 21This I recall to my heart— therefore I have hope: 22Because of the mercies of Adonai we will not be consumed, for His compassions never fail. 23They are new every morning! Great is Your faithfulness. 24“Adonai is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in Him.”

John 8:3-12

“3The Torah scholars and Pharisees bring in a woman who had been caught in adultery. After putting her in the middle, 4they say to Yeshua, “Teacher, this woman has been caught in the act of committing adultery. 5In the Torah, Moses commanded us to stone such women. So what do You say?” 6Now they were saying this to trap Him, so that they would have grounds to accuse Him. But Yeshua knelt down and started writing in the dirt with His finger. 7When they kept asking Him, He stood up and said, “The sinless one among you, let him be the first to throw a stone at her.” 8Then He knelt down again and continued writing on the ground. 9Now when they heard, they began to leave, one by one, the oldest ones first, until Yeshua was left alone with the woman in the middle. 10Straightening up, Yeshua said to her, “Woman, where are they? Did no one condemn you?” 11“No one, Sir,” she said. “Then neither do I condemn you,” Yeshua said. “Go, and sin no more.” 12Yeshua spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. The one who follows Me will no longer walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
