DAY 364 - Leprosy: Body And Home Cleansing

Today's Reading: Leviticus 14

Please read Leviticus 14 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 14:

Chinese: 14&version=CUV

NIV: 14&version=NIV

ESV: 14&version=ESV

Message: 14&version=MSG

The priest who pronounces him clean shall present both the one to be cleansed and his offerings before the Lord at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting. Leviticus 14: 11

This chapter reminds me of Luke 11: 11- 19. It's about the importance of thanksgiving and the willingness to witness how our leprosy was being healed. Our sins made us somewhat like those who have leprosy and we desperately need Jesus healing. There are three things I received today from Jesus:

1. Complete Cleansing - The Lord led me to compare with two other chapters: Leviticus 8 (The ordination of Aaron and his four sons) and Isaiah 6: 1 - 10 (The passage used for most ordinations). It's unusual that the process of cleansing leprosy is so similar to the procedure of ordaining priests. What does that tell us? What tells me is that the ordination process is somewhat a kind of body, mind and soul cleansing and everybody needs such kind of cleansing if we admit that we are only sinners.

2. Thanksgiving - The cleansing is just like a kind of "transformation" that needs to be announce to all people that they know how great God is. But, nowadays most Christians keep those healings and transformations secret and that is so wrong!

3. Home cleansing - I think only less than 1% of Christians knows the importance of home blessing and cleansing including pastors. We really need to invite our priests/pastors to bless our home and make it clean.

Dear Lord Jesus,

Help us to understand that we need your cleansing. Give us courage to witness to other people how great you are. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Sorry that the internet service in our hotel was down until 9:30a.m. this morning. Today is our last day of holiday and thanks for all your prayers that we are having a most wonderful family thanksgiving holiday!

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!
