Today's Reading: 1 Peter 3

Please read 1 Peter 3 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.

總 而 言 之 , 你 們 都 要 同 心 , 彼 此 體 恤 , 相 愛 如 弟 兄 , 存 慈 憐 謙 卑 的 心 。
不 以 惡 報 惡 , 以 辱 罵 還 辱 罵 , 倒 要 祝 福 ; 因 你 們 是 為 此 蒙 召 , 好 叫 你 們 承 受 福 氣 。

                                                               彼 得 前 書 3:8-9

 Finally, all of you, have unity of mind, sympathy, brotherly love, a tender heart, and a humble mind.  Do not repay evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary, bless, for to this you were called, that you may obtain a blessing. 

                                                    1 Peter 3:8-9

    What I got today from Jesus is: Bless to have unity

    Today Jesus calls us to bless all people in order that we can taste the sweetness of unity. It works for the relationship of husbands and wives as from verses 1 to 7. And, it works for all as from verse 8 to 22. 

    It is so natural to repay evil for evil or reviling for reviling. It is so easy to use your tongue and lips speaking deceit. Paul was being treated in a real bad way by all kinds of people around him, some are his former disciples. According to verse 16, Paul even teaches us to bless those who speak maliciously against us. Paul chooses to bless. How about you?

    If we all start to bless everyone, appreciating everyone's contributions and cherishing everyone's friendship, then, you will surely taste the sweetness of UNITY! 

Dear Lord Jesus,
Lead us to be able to bless everyone so that we can be able to taste the sweetness of unity.   In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
