Golden Verse 金句

Then he opened their minds to understand the Scriptures,
                                      Luke 24:45
於 是 耶 穌 開 他 們 的 心 竅 , 使 他 們 能 明 白 聖 經 ,                        路加福音 24:45
Today's Reading: Luke 24:36-53

Please read Luke 24:36-53 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: Ask Jesus to open your mind each day
     There are lots of Christians who wants to have a better understanding of the Bible. They go to Bible Study group, they go to take courses, they become a Bible Study group leader and try their best to prepare themselves before the group meeting and they do everything they can in order to understand the Bible and help others to understand the Bible.

     But, lots of time they forget to ask Jesus to open their minds each day so that they are able to understand God's Word! That is God's Word! Without asking through prayers each time and each day I don't think we can be able to understand the Bible. Yes, we need to read commentaries. Yes, we need to study. Yes, we need to do everything we can to learn more. But, without a daily intimate personal relationship with Jesus and without asking him and being with Him closely we can never understand.

     So, where is Jesus now? How close is He with you now?

Dear Lord Jesus,
Lead us to be closely with you each day that our minds can be opened to understand your Word.  In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
