and to be able to memorize one golden verse everyday.
We will cover New Testament in one year(Dec.1,2012 to Nov. 30,2013), 
Old Testament in another year(Dec.1,2013 to Nov. 30,2014)

Golden Verse 金句

But he said to them, “It is I; don’t be afraid.” Then they were willing to take him into the boat, and immediately the boat reached the shore where they were heading.
                     John 6:20-21

耶 穌 對 他 們 說 : 是 我 , 不 要 怕 !
門 徒 就 喜 歡 接 他 上 船 , 船 立 時 到 了 他 們 所 要 去 的 地 方 。

                                                                 約翰福音 6: 20-21

Today's Reading: John 6:1-24

Please read John 6:1-24 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 my Devotion on Fire blog:

     What I got from Jesus is: Take me into your boat!
     What I got from Jesus today is an invitation to take Jesus into our boat. If we can do so, then immediately Jesus will take us to where he wants us to go.

     Is that so easy? I think so, but it is in Jesus way, not your way!

     We like to say, "Hay, now we are on the same boat, we really need to work together more closely, right?" We know how to say it to some people who are in the same situation with us hoping that we can have one more person to walk with. But, we do not know how to take Jesus into our boat.

     Why? Because during stormy time we are usually in a fearful mode. We could not be able to see Jesus so we do not have that opportunity like the disciples in today's passage to be willing to take Jesus to the boat. Or, even if we know Jesus is near our boat but we are not willing. Why? May be we think that we can handle the situation, may be we are angry with Jesus of stirring that storm, may be we do not have the gift or ability to discern whether it is Jesus or not or other reason.

    Anyway, Jesus invites you to take him to your boat. Are you willing today?

Dear Lord Jesus,
Lead us to know that we need you into our boat all the time. Help us to accept your invitation to take you into our boats.  In Jesus name we pray. Amen.

**NEW link for the 12th 100 days 24 hours prayer campaign (from December 04, 2012 to March 14, 2013)

The easiest way is to take one hour slot for the whole week. What you need to do is very simple. Choose one dayThe easiest way is to take one hour slot for the whole week to pray for me, my family and my ministry, remembering the ministry of ACiC(ACiC has two Networks: ACiC, Anglican Coalition in Canada and AI, Asian Initiative). You may use the whole hour in prayer or you can still do you work in your office but use as much time as you can to pray and the other time work prayerfully that hour to pray for our ministry. This campaign is also to teach you that you need somebody to pray for you daily. I have been prayed for hourly the past 1,200 days and I have never experienced this kind of peace and protection before. It's just beyond words can express. If I did not listen and obey to Jesus call 1,200 days ago to start this prayer movement, I think I would be pulled into darkness and discouragement already! I deeply believe that this is a way to draw as many participation as we can in prayers. I encourage you to participate. We need you to join us! Trust in the power of prayers!
