Today's Reading: Hebrews 13

Please read Hebrews 13 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:

You may begin with a song to praise the Lord and complete you devotion by singing another praise song.

從 前 引 導 你 們 、 傳 神 之 道 給 你 們 的 人 , 你 們 要 想 念 他 們 , 效 法 他 們 的 信 心 , 留 心 看 他 們 為 人 的 結 局 。

 耶 穌 基 督 , 昨 日 、 今 日 、 一 直 到 永 遠 、 是 一 樣 的 。

                                                               希 伯 來 書 13:7-8

Remember your leaders, those who spoke to you the word of God. Consider the outcome of their way of life, and imitate their faith.  Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. 
                                                    Hebrews 13:7-8

Please click the links to Hebrews 13

    What I got today from Jesus is: Be an example of past, present and future
    Today Jesus gives us a very important secret to have a blessed life. We need to be an example of the past, present and future. Just as Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.

    Many people just focus on verse 8 to describe the character of Jesus. Actually it links to verse 7. The author is trying to compare a good leader with the life of Jesus. That's the true character of Christlikeness. 

    We need to have those good leaders that we can count on and they should be those leaders having a track record, with successful ministry at present and that we can see from their "finishing well" to help us to follow that example.

    Just like John Stott, Billy Graham and many other great leaders!

    I had the honour to have Pastor Rick Warren to preach in the service of my consecration as a bishop on September 9, 2009. Rick chose these two verses to remind me of how to prepare myself to be a bishop following other great leaders footstep and be an examples to other leaders. 

    How can we live our lives to be a good example of past, present and future. 

Dear Lord Jesus,
Lead us to be a good example of past, present and future.  In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
