CLEAN

Today’s Reading: Leviticus 14

Click scripture link to read online or HERE to listen online (then click the symbol of the audio speaker above the scripture portion on the right-hand side).

 

In the area of Caesarea Philippi in Northern Israel, clean cool water from Mount Herman runs swiftly through these waterfalls at Banias.

Key Verse: Leviticus 14:8

He who is to be cleansed shall wash his clothes, shave off all his hair, and wash himself in water, that he may be clean. After that he shall come into the camp, and shall stay outside his tent seven days.

 

Please click on this Scripture passage: 2 Corinthians 3:14-18. When reading the Old Testament we must read through God’s prescription glasses. He has provided that when we read Scripture, looking through the Person of Jesus Christ, we are able to see with insight and understanding. In yesterday’s reading, the priests were given instruction in the detection of leprosy. Today’s chapter deals with the procedures for cleansing and restoration into the community. Our cleansing is by the Blood of Christ (1 John 1:7). Restoration into the full fellowship of the Church, after spiritual leprosy is cleansed, is described in Galatians 6:1-10. Please click that link and we’ll be blessed to read together.

PRAYER FOR TODAY:

Lord Jesus, Please help me to receive those who turn to You in repentance as You have received me. I need Your cleansing every day, and I thank You and my fellow believers for receiving me into Your Church. Amen!

100 PERSONAL WORDS:

Today’s photo is a magnificent demonstration of the intricate beauty of God’s creation for the cleansing and productivity of the land. I stepped outside a few minutes ago and gazed at the sky. The stars were so very bright and the moon was front and centre. A racoon scampered away from his breakfast on the seeds the birds had dropped from the feeder. How do I think about these things? The human brain is the most complicated organization of matter in the universe. One of our cells is more complicated than the entire man-made electric power system of Toronto. I’m not surprised that, in reading Leviticus, sometimes my eyes glaze over with incomprehension and I feel like going back to bed. The detail in Leviticus is tough for us to handle. God is a God of infinite detail. I know that I will stick with my reading and with this blog because of the grace God has given me. Lots of people give up their reading at this point. I know I’m stubborn enough to keep on keeping on.

Yours for persistent and consistent reading of God’s Word,

David

  1. Perfect metaphorical photo to go with today’s scripture of cleansing rituals. We come before You Lord, our sole (and soul) cleaner. Holy Spirit, clean us deep within, that your light may shine without. Thank You Jesus, for Your loving grace and presence in our lives. Amen. Wishing all saints a blessed day in the Lord.

  2. Dear Lord God, thank You for not letting us go. Thank You for being faithful; for keeping working in us and through us. Be glorified, Lord, in and through all Your church today. Help us face all challenges today with Your grace and wisdom, in Jesus’s great name, amen

  3. Pastors John Hagee & Greg Laurie are reported (on CBN) as having Covid19. Let us lift them up in prayer. Father God, in Jesus Name, restore health to these two saints and may You be glorified through their faith & witness. Amen

  4. Trust you looked back to my yesterday’s blog Beverlee thanking you for your prayers. Had a good day and now today the sun is coming out again after a dreary morning. Thank you for your report also on Asia Bibi. God answers prayer. Will pray for John Hagee and Greg Laurie!

    • Amen Ger. Thanks to Doreen’s post from two years ago, I learned about Asia Bibi, and today about Pastors Hagee and Laurie. Greg Laurie is one of my favourites. Have a great day. Lovely wind blowing through the trees/leaves, here.

  5. Yes Leviticus is hard reading. But not with this blog! Its so much more simple now to read it and to look forward to the teaching and lesson in the blog. That makes it not tedious or hard as a result!
