Words of Encouragement

Pastor Bruce & Suzi Elman

Comforting Word

Psalm 23 is where we find today’s Scripture that is so comforting! As busy as our schedules are in this hectic world we live in, let’s take time out to reflect on GOD’S comforting word! GOD causes us to lay down and rest, He refreshes and restores our mind, will, and...


Our ABBA FATHER desires to be involved in every aspect of our lives. He gives clear direction in His Word so that we can understand what His will is for every circumstance we encounter! By walking in the center of GOD’S will, we accomplish that which we were created...

A Passionate Heart

We need to discover how to be passionate about the things GOD is passionate about. The Word of GOD teaches us over and over again that we are to help hurting people. Our ABBA FATHER is passionate about helping the widows, the fatherless, the poor, the needy, the...

Misplaced Priorities

There is always a penalty for misplaced priorities (Luke12:6-21)! That Scripture reference is about a foolish man who passed away with no opportunity to enjoy his goods, and even worse, he died with a bankrupt soul (missed out on Heaven)! We as believers must make...

A True Follower

When YESHUA walked this earth, a vast multitude followed Him. They came for many reasons, some noble, some selfish. The same is still true today. Not all that seek GOD are really His followers! Let’s take a look at our own walk and ask ourselves, “What do we want from...

Gift of Grace

Many people simply can’t believe that the LORD loves them! Others believe that He loves them but only when they are pleasing Him in some way  Why is it so hard for us to accept GOD’S unconditional love? Maybe because we ourselves have a hard time loving others without...

Putting on Love

PUTTING ON LOVE”  What does love look like? For this, we have to look at GOD! 1 John 4:8 says GOD is love. He knows nothing else. We see through Scripture the love YESHUA had for all people. How He handled Himself when they came up against Him & how He behaved...

Being Still

Temptations, trials and suffering—we’ve all experienced them! Even as Messiah followers (sometimes especially because we’re believers), we must endure pain whether through loss, bankruptcy, unemployment or broken relationships! While no one is immune to hard times,...

God’s Purpose

When we read Psalm 46:10, we see that it instructs us to “Be still” during times of difficulty. That Scripture means we should stop trying to manipulate our circumstances and instead allow GOD to work!  Understanding a verse is one thing, but putting it into action...

Tested by God’s Promise

“God sent a man before them, Joseph, who was sold as a slave. They afflicted his feet with fetters; he himself was laid in irons, until the time that his word came to pass, the word of the LORD tested him.” Psalm 105:17–19 The life of Joseph began with great promise....

Fiery Ordeals

Being a believer in Yeshua isn’t always easy. In fact, sometimes we’ll experience trials that truly test our faith and ability to trust in GOD. In today’s Scripture, Peter refers to times of testing as “fiery ordeals”! He says we shouldn’t be surprised when hardships...

Finishing With Joy

Beginning something is easy, but finishing takes courage! In the early stages of something new, we get all excited about it. We have a lot of emotions to support us. But when the emotions wear off and all that’s left is a lot of hard work and the need for patience,...

Sharing Joy

When you are in love, it is an exciting and touching emotion! The same holds true of your love for YESHUA. It’s hard to keep it to yourself! The JOY that comes from loving and knowing your Savior spills over, bearing witness!  YESHUA calls us to be witnesses to the...

God’s Character

When evil people affect our lives, we often wonder how GOD could permit such a thing? Humanly thinking, that question would make sense. And when this happens, we may never understand the reason wickedness was allowed to touch us. However, the LORD gives several...

Desire or Necessity

Sometimes people perceive a desire as a necessity. The heart can become so consumed with a craving that fulfilling it feels critical to your well-being. Then when GOD doesn’t meet the “need,” anger and frustration come about!  If your need wasn’t met by GOD, ask...

Be a Doer

The LORD conforms us to the truth by continually confronting us with the truth (the Bible)! When He does, either we accept it as truth or we ignore it.  When we accept the truth from our heavenly FATHER, we can expect His richest blessings, even when we don’t have any...

Walking in Darkness

The verse for today, written by John, was addressed to believers who already have a relationship with GOD (salvation through YESHUA) but needed a reminder of how to remain in fellowship with Him. Although believers have been made new in MASCHIACH (2 Corinthians 5:17),...

Adventure of Faith

A committed and consistent prayer life is essential for every believer who wants to grow in his relationship with YESHUA! Are you struggling in this area? Let’s take a look at some hindrances! Some find it easy to pray when there is an urgent need, but once the...

Spiritual Anchor

When turbulent times are upon you, the Word of GOD should be your anchor! In our scripture for today, we find Isaiah’s writings about our source for that hope ( MESSIAH YESHUA). Here GOD promises us strength, help and protection! Moreover, He gives us two commands:...

Faith Muscles

Almost every believer in Yeshua at one time or another will make the statement: “I wish I had great faith!”  Faith is like a muscle. In order for your muscles to become strong, you must exercise them. There is work involved. You can’t just wish for it to happen. We...

Stop and Listen

In the Bible, we read stories about GOD speaking to His prophets, and He still speaks to us today the same way! We need to listen for that small, still voice; don’t let the business of life keep us from listening!  The first time He spoke was through the power of the...

Forever and Ever

The Book of Revelation may be the most ignored book of the New Testament, simply because it can be difficult to understand. This book has some of the richest descriptions of our LORD Yeshua that Scripture has to offer. We love the images of Yeshua as a helpless...


After YESHUA told His disciples He was going away, He also promised that He would return and take them to a home He had prepared (John 14:2-3). These verses confirm that Heaven is a real place! According to the Bible, we believers have citizenship in Paradise...

Double Minded

The Old Testament tells us idolatry is a serious issue. But in our modern world, not many give that much thought!  The worship of idols may seem ancient, but the truth is that all of us will struggle with this heart issue!  Modern idols can come in many different...

Faith Factors

The Apostle James challenges us to understand the connection between faith and obedience! He writes in James 2:17 that faith without works is dead. In other words, we cannot have unshakable faith without obedience!  Developing steadfast trust takes time. Yes, we are...

L’Chaim means “to LIFE!” and we pray that you find LIFE in Yeshua,

the Messiah, the Way, the Truth, and the LIFE!

L’Chaim Messianic Congregation is a congregation of Jews and non-Jews who believe Yeshua (Jesus) is the promised Messiah of Israel.

We exist to reach the local, pre‑believing Jewish people with the fact that Scripture is God’s inspired and true Word, that Yeshua is the Risen Messiah of Israel, and that an abiding faith in Him is His only provision for eternal life in Heaven with the Lord.

L’Chaim Messianic Congregation has been faithfully serving the Florida cities of Wellington, Loxahatchee, Royal Palm Beach, West Palm Beach, Lake Worth, Lantana,  and the greater Southeast Florida, Palm Beach County community since 2003.

During the Shabbat Service, we include appropriate elements from traditional Jewish Services, including liturgical prayers and reading from the Hebrew Scriptures (Torah), with Messianic praise, worship, and dance as we are led by the Ruach HaKodesh, the Holy Spirit.

Our congregation leader, Pastor Bruce Elman, then shares an encouraging message from the Word of God and explains how it applies to our lives. Following the main service, we gather for the Oneg Shabbat lunch, fellowship, Bible study and Hebrew classes.
