"These are the laws you are to set before them: ..." Exodus 21:1
Who needs these complicated laws? Who needs rules and regulations?
I remember five years ago when I was attending the annual AMiA Winter Conference, I met a US Marine Captan who happened to be having his holiday in that hotel. There were just the two of us in the jacuzzi, and we chatted. I asked him, "Is it true that the Staff Sergeant trained those new soldiers using all kinds of rude and crazy methods as described in the movies?" He said, "yes". And I asked, "Why?" He said, "We want to push every new soldier to their limits, crush their self and ego and push them to the bottom so that they can raise them up as a total obedient soldier."
God used those complicated laws not to control people but to protect, love and free people. After all if God say YES and we say NO, then what kind of God is He?
Dear Lord Jesus,
Help me learn, practice and enjoy your laws, rules and regulations. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

God's time and blessings are always beyond imagination. Michelle was so good and healthy two days ago in our 25th Wedding Anniversary. She enjoyed every moment and ate everything our beloved brothers and sisters prepared. But then she got fever just the same as the last two time - exactly 10 days after the chemo! She lost most of her appetite and was very weak the past two days! Praise God, for July 13, 2010 was only the 9th day!

It’s such a joy to witness the awesome power of the Holy Spirit moving among the Christians here. As we were worshiping at Dukum MKC church, there was so much singing, shouting, dancing, and a glorious exaltation of Jesus. The Holy Spirit is working so powerfully among the people here and no one holds back in worship.
Free. Full-hearted. Open. Jubilant.
That is worship.
Although I did not understand a word they say (with the exception of Jésus), I was worshiping in spirit and in truth. Can you imagine a church made of mud and steel plating, and yet it is FILLED with passionate worshipers who want only to praise God with their whole heart, body, mind, and soul? WOW!
Yesterday we went to visit 2 homes. At the first house we visited a girl and her sister, cousin, and mom...
