DAY 84 - Good Soil, A Hundred Times!

Please join our new Mentor 123 campaign starting this coming Easter Sunday, March 31, 2013!

What you need to do is to find two more people meeting once a week for three months, encouraging each others to have daily devotion - a daily intimate personal relationship with Jesus!

To create a momentum to this new yearly campaign I am going to start a new blog and podcast on that day. I will direct my two blogs and podcasts to that new site to have a 40 days BREAK.BUILD daily devotion. For a preliminary format please go to this site: . 

You can see the layout and titles of all 40 days. Come on , let's get two more people to start a daily tasting of Jesus wonderful banquet specially prepared for us! 

This blog is to help you to have a daily intimate personal relationship with Jesus 
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

Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop—a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown. "
                                             Matthew 13:8

"又 有 落 在 好 土 裡 的 , 就 結 實 , 有 一 百 倍 的 , 有 六 十 倍 的 , 有 三 十 倍 的 。"
                                                  馬太福音 13:8



Today's Reading: Matthew 13:1-23

Please read Matthew 13:1-23 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: Good soil, a hundred times!
     What I received from  Jesus today is an invitation to be the good soil so that He can work through us to produce a crop of a hundred times! And that is there would be 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 people in heaven because of our witness and effort! Thirty zeros after "1"!

     Just 12 hours ago we were walking the Mount of Beatitude trail and our guild explains what is good soil. You can see in the picture there are two tall plants and he said when people see this kind of plant that soil must be good soil.
     So, let's think and pray that what would be those things that when people see that know that we are the good soil.

     You also can see a picture showing what Jesus means first the stalk, then the head, then the full kernel and then harvest comes. This wheat was being picked up in the Mount of Beatitude, you can see the stalk, then the head, then the full kernel. What my research in my Doctoral thesis shows is that there is a missing DNA of the first stage of Discipleship Development - the stalk. We have so many "head" (discipleship programs), many "full kernel" (theological courses, intense learning opportunities). But most Christians including pastors do not have a daily intimate personal relationship with Jesus!
     Good soil to me means we have to remove all those obstacles daily in order that we have a daily intimate personal relationship with Jesus so that we can produce a crop of "A hundred times"! Or, at least 30 times and that is 1,000,000,000!

Dear Lord Jesus,
Lead us to be able to prepare ourselves and others to be good soil so that we can at least produce a crop of thirty times.  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!
