Day Eight B90X (Le 1:1- Le 14:32)

Good morning Saints~~~
 
Wowzers!  I just finished reading the first fourteen chapters of Leviticus.  Miss Christie is laughing in the background as she is reading.  Human nature is so funny. 
 
I had a completely different paradigm reading this section today.  Reading Leviticus is such a joy and pleasure rather than a nuisance.  I asked Father to open my eyes in a completely different way this go-round.  I think one of the reasons I always shudder when I get to Leviticus is the result of a church we used to go to.  The pastor preached out of this book for about a year.  We got so sick of it.  We were wicked in every way.  We had to repent of everything regardless of whether or not we had done anything.  The group got very inverted, religious, and legalistic.  It got very sick, cancerous, and dead.  We got out.  It took a while before we were healed of all that and completely free.  But it made Christie and I very keen towards religious and legalistic spirits that at so prevalent in the church today.  Anything that smacks of spiritual pride, dutiful obligation, additional rules to salvation, and outward appearances are glaring and difficult.  They just don’t please Father.  He wants our hearts.  He want us to be living sacrifices.  He wants us to hate sin because sin destroys relationships.  Relationships are the most important thing we have.

Day Three B90X (Ge 28:20- Ge 40:11)

Good Evening Saints!!~~

I pray for you daily as we push into relevant life with Father.

Paul’s life is a beautiful example of focusing on others ALL the time. As he wrote his letter to the church at Philippi, he was chained up in prison, far away from every possible comfort. While he had many prime opportunities to write and complain about the conditions of his jail cell, or the disgusting food that was occasionally thrown to him, or the fresh collection of bruises from his guards, he chose instead to encourage his readers – reminding them to put everyone else before themselves. His perspective is a rare and very valuable one.

-When we are feeling imprisoned by whatever life has handed us, how often do we choose to encourage those around us, instead of venting and complaining about our own situation? How do we show that the needs of those around us are more important than our own?

-Pray that God would give you a new perspective on your surroundings – and that you would begin choosing to put your friends and family before yourself.
