Golden Verse 金句

Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
                  John 4:13

耶 穌 回 答 說 : 凡 喝 這 水 的 還 要 再 渴 ;
人 若 喝 我 所 賜 的 水 就 永 遠 不 渴 。 我 所 賜 的 水 要 在 他 裡 頭 成 為 泉 源 , 直 湧 到 永 生 。
                                                                 約翰福音 4:13

     What I got from Jesus is: Only Jesus can quench your thirst!
     What I got from Jesus today is a live or die situation. As human beings we have all kinds of needs, we are thirsty for so many things. Some of the things we thirst may waste our whole life in laboring and pursuing without any real fruit like to be a alcoholic or workaholic. If we thirst for money and power, it would somewhat like drinking sea water, never can quench your thirst. If we thirst for some immoral things that can cause our life, our marriage, our family and our everything collapse.

     The "water" Jesus offers refers to spiritual life. As it is written in Isaiah 12:3 "With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation." Jesus is talking about salvation, about born again, about a daily intimate personal relationship with him through reading the Bible and being with him.

     Many Christians know this is the only "water" we need to have each day to quench our thirst. Think about not drinking any water for a day! You won't, right? But, you are OK not reading the Bible, having daily devotion for a week, right?  Why? There must be something wrong with your relationship with Christ! If this is not you, then pray and think about how many of your family members, relatives and friends are like that. Do you know Jesus wants you to help them to have the real and only "water"?  

Dear Lord Jesus,
Lead us to enjoy the water you give us each day that we will never thirst but our lives will be like spring of waters helping many others to quench their thirst.  In Jesus name we pray. Amen.

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!
