Golden Verse 金句

"All by itself the soil produces grain—first the stalk, then the head, then the full kernel in the head.  As soon as the grain is ripe, he puts the sickle to it, because the harvest has come.”
                                                                       Mark 4: 28-29

地 生 五 穀 是 出 於 自 然 的 : 先 發 苗 , 後 長 穗 , 再 後 穗 上 結 成 飽 滿 的 子 粒 ;
 穀 既 熟 了 , 就 用 鐮 刀 去 割 , 因 為 收 成 的 時 候 到 了 。

                                                                      馬可福音 4: 28-29

Today's Reading: Mark 4:21-41

     What I got from Jesus is: First the stalk!
     Today's passage especially verse 28 to 29 is the root and foundation of our ACiC/AI four years plan and my doctoral thesis namely "Micro Discipleship". Please go to this link to read what I got and wrote in July 3, 2009 concerning with these two verses and the vision I got since that time:

     I sincerely hope you can memorize these two verses because it will surely help you to experience Kingdom growth. First, start with the micro stage, to be a Discipler to help one to two Christians to have a daily intimate personal relationship with Jesus through the readying of the Bible.

     We started our first stage to raise up Disciplers in 2011, then last year we had our second stage, to raise up Evangelist, this year we focus on being mentors, continue to be Disciplers and Evangelists. Then, next year we'll focus on how to raise up church planters.

     But, first let's memorize these two verses so that we know that this vision is from Jesus and Jesus did spend three years in going through all four stages and we are enjoying the fruit Jesus brought living out this Micro to Macro vision. 

Dear Lord Jesus,
Lead us to be willing to follow your good example to start the stalk first trusting that other stages will follow. give our time, money and everything to you sos that we can be fruitful and have at least thirty times.  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!
