and to be able to memorize one golden verse everyday.

Old Testament in another year(Dec.1,2013 to Nov. 30,2014)

Golden Verse 金句

“I tell you the truth, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does.  For the Father loves the Son and shows him all he does. Yes, to your amazement he will show him even greater things than these.
                     John 5:19-20

 我 實 實 在 在 的 告 訴 你 們 , 子 憑 著 自 己 不 能 做 甚 麼 , 惟 有 看 見 父 所 做 的 , 子 才 能 做 ; 父 所 做 的 事 , 子 也 照 樣 做 。
 父 愛 子 , 將 自 己 所 做 的 一 切 事 指 給 他 看 , 還 要 將 比 這 更 大 的 事 指 給 他 看 , 叫 你 們 希 奇 。
                                                                 約翰福音 5:19-20

Today's Reading: John 5:1-30

Please read John 5:1-30 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: Father, show me how!
     What I got from Jesus today is perhaps one of the most important direction of our life. Why? That's why Jesus could do all those miracles because the Heavenly Father showed him how to do those things.

     We can see the pattern of how a coach leads his/her apprentice to become a coach himself/herself:
I do, you watch
I do, you help
You do, I help
You do, I watch

You do, your apprentice watch
You do, your apprentice help
Your apprentice do, you help
Your apprentice do, you watch

That's how we can train our first generation of apprentices to become coaches and disciples of Christ. Then, our apprentices train their first generation of apprentices to become coaches and disciples of Christ and we have our second generations of "disciples of Christ".

But, don't miss the one very important here. It's one very important word:

There is a father and son most intimate relationship when Jesus talked about his secret to do those miracles.  It's like how my own father taught me how to swim and how to ride a bicycle.  I still remember how my father did that with love, patience, time, efforts and everything he got to teach me to do that.

So, let's establish our daily intimate personal with our Heavenly Father first like what Jesus has and then He will show you how. You don't even need to ask Him. He is going to show you. Are you willing to follow His lead and do it yourself? That's the question! 
Dear Heavenly Father,
Lead us to enjoy that daily intimate personal relationship with you.  Open our eyes to see what you want us to see that we can be able to do your mighty Kingdom ministry.  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!
