DAY 362 - God Discriminates regarding Women?

Today's Reading: Leviticus 12

Please read Leviticus 12 and listen to what the Lord Jesus Christ would like to tell you before reading my Spiritual Journal below. If you would like to learn a simple and good way of Daily Devotion method please read my “Count Down 5” from this blog. You may click this link directly for the method:Subject Shifting Devotion.pdf. (You may begin with a song to praise the Lord and complete you devotion by singing another praise song.)

Please click the links below to Leviticus 12:

Chinese: 12&version=CUV

NIV: 12&version=NIV

ESV: 12&version=ESV

Message: 12&version=MSG

"If she gives birth to a daughter, for two weeks the woman will be unclean, as during her period. Then she must wait sixty-six days to be purified from her bleeding." Leviticus 12: 5

For a soldier it is so easy to say "Yes Sir" but for a Christian it is so easy to ask God "Why". Does God discriminates regarding women? Why does giving birth to a girl needs 66 days to be purified and a son needs only 33 days? Well, to listen and obey is never easy to learn; Leviticus is full of regulations to train the Israelites to listen and obey God. Nothing more and nothing less! There are always so medical, cultural and other reasons people did not understand at that time but could understand maybe a thousand year or a few thousand years later and say, "Ah, I see!" And there are somethings we never can understand until we are in heaven and we'll say, "Ah, I see!" God never discriminates; it is just from a human's point of view that we think God discriminates because we can never understand God if God does not reveal Himself to us.

Dear Lord Jesus,

Help me not to question you but to obey you. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

I had a most joyful birthday yesterday in Portland! We went to a new paradigm church - Mars Hills Church, Bellevue to worship and receive communion and we had a great lunch in a restaurant very near to the church and dinner in a Cuban style restaurant in Portland. The Chinese song "My Thanks" a few days ago has such a verse:

Without rainy season, who loves sunny sky

Michelle said, "I can accept and enjoy everything after this nearly dying experience", and I enjoyed every minute of this trip that I can be with Michelle and our two sons! Thank you Lord! Without rainy season, who loves sunny sky!

My son, Ignatius, completed his three weeks mission in Ethiopia a few days ago.We are so joyful to welcome him home and know that he experienced God mightily in that three weeks. His one word of experience is "JOY"! Please click this link to read his wonderful sharing:

Face book version:

Welcome! The purpose of this blog is to encourage Christians to have daily devotion - a wonderful and intimate time with Jesus.
There are three reasons for you to use this blog as your daily devotion:
1. A healthy spiritual diet - One chapter of the Bible daily. We really need at least one chapter of Bible daily so that we are well fed.
2. A good example of Spiritual Journaling - What I have committed for 1,189 days(the Bible has 1,189 chapters)to write this daily post is not for teaching purposes but this is my daily spiritual journal - I write down what I hear from Jesus and how I experience His intimate relationship with me each day. I have launched a wide-spectrum research on daily devotion and have found out that there are less than 10% of Christians that are having daily devotion. Out of that 10%, many having daily devotion are doing so because of guilt (they know that they are Christians and need to have daily devotion and feel guilty if they don’t do that), duty (they need to fulfill their duty as a Christian) or study(lots of Christians primarily use their daily devotion as a time to study the Bible). I do pray and hope that you will make up your mind to have a relational daily devotion so that you can have an intimate time with Jesus. I pray that you will write your own spiritual journal as well.
3. An online discipler – One of the reasons that so many Christians do not have daily devotion is because they do not have a discipler. A discipler can help them build up this basic element of discipleship when they first become Christians. The best way for you is to have a discipler to walk with you for a certain period of time so that daily devotion become a good habit. Or, you may have a small group of two to three people to encourage and be accountable to each other so that you won’t stop your daily devotion. I offer myself as your online discipler to walk with you daily to enrich your spiritual journey. So, shall we start this journey with Jesus Christ our Lord now!
