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

“Only in his hometown, among his relatives and in his own house is a prophet without honor.”
                                                                       Mark 6: 4

"大 凡 先 知 , 除 了 本 地 、 親 屬 、 本 家 之 外 , 沒 有 不 被 人 尊 敬 的 。"
                                                                      馬可福音 6: 4

Today's Reading: Mark 6:1-29

Please read Mark 6:1-29 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: Don't shoot the wrong target!
     Do you think that the most difficult people for you to lead to Jesus are always your family members and relatives. The most difficult people to respect you and honour you are always your family members and relatives. Why? May be they think that they know you too much and you can't change much in their eyes. 

     Jesus gives us a true picture that even he could not get his family members and relatives to respect him. He had to go to other places to exercise his power and authority and not in his hometown.

     Do you have someone in your home or a relative who is a servant of God whom you don't believe, respect and honour?  Watch out your attitude!

     On the other hand, many Christians spend much time in trying to lead their family members and relatives to Jesus because they think that would be easier. Well, don't shoot the wrong target and don't waste your time if they are not those Jesus prepares for you to work on. 

Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to respect and honor our family members and relatives especially when they are your servants. And lead us to the right target so that we don't waste our time shooting wrong targets.  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!
