Jesus tells us that we need to not only hear what He says, but also do what He says. He wants us to take action. In order to accomplish this, it's important for us to have a solid foundation in our lives, for those who don't will not be able to endure the storms of life. God established all of the Holy Days, and how we prepare for, and keep, them sends a powerful message to Him. There's more to it than just showing up. We each need to prepare physically, spiritually, and emotionally. Let's ask ourselves, "Are we really ready for the Fall Holy Days?"
