Romans 3:27-31

3:27 Then what becomes of our boasting? It is excluded. On what principle? On the principle of mitzvoth-works? No, but on the principle of a’men. 28For we hold that a man is justified (acceptable) by a’men apart from mitzvoth-works of Torah. 29Or is hwhy the Elohim of Jews only? Is he not the Elohim of Gentiles also? Yes, of Gentiles also, 30since hwhy is one; and he will justify (accept) the circumcised on the ground of their a’men and the uncircumcised through their a’men. 31 Do we then overthrow the Torah by this a’men? By no means! On the contrary, we uphold the Torah.

Faith is amen. Amen is standing firm on the Word. The Word is Torah.
If Torah observance is a matter of "be" not "do" then the key to Torah observance is keeping my gaze on Y'shua-Jesus. Can it be that simple? Are their habits and traditions to do in living "The Way"? The frustrating answer is keep your eyes on Y'shua. It is also the answer of Joy. Keep your eyes on Y'shua. Anything I can brag to you about is eliminated. There is no mitzvoth (work) I can do that gives me or you any assurance in The Way of Life. Stand firm (be). That is Torah observance. The first step on The Way is something you cannot do; you must be born again.
