DAY 85 - How Bright You Are?

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

Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. "
                                             Matthew 13:43

"那 時 , 義 人 在 他 們 父 的 國 裡 , 要 發 出 光 來 , 像 太 陽 一 樣 。 "
                                                  馬太福音 13:43


Today's Reading: Matthew 13:24-43

Please read Matthew 13:24-43 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: How bright you are?
     Today is Day 4 of our Israel study tour and we went through quite a number of military check points with soldiers holding semi-automatic guns staring at us.  They wanted to see if we looked like those they needed to check.  Well, of course those soldiers have their special training that they know how to pick up some suspects and search them.

     Jesus concludes the whole passage of the parables of the weeds, the mustard seed and the yeast trying to tell us if we are in His Kingdom doing His Kingdom work then we will be like those mustard seed and the yeast. The Israelites are being called children of light and not children of the world. So, they should be able to shine and have the brightness of being the children of light. Then, when the end of age comes, they should be as bright as the sun to enter into the Kingdom of heaven and those who are weeds have no light in them at all and will be thrown into darkness.

     So, the question I received from Jesus today is this: How bright you are today? When people see you, do they recognize the brightness of having the light, Jesus in you that you are shining? 

Dear Lord Jesus,
Lead us to be willing to have you lording us that we can be able to shine for you. 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!
