Subject Shifting Devotion Method(Inspired by John Stott in 1991:

Today's Reading: 2 Peter 1

Please read 2 Peter 1 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.

你 們 若 充 充 足 足 的 有 這 幾 樣 , 就 必 使 你 們 在 認 識 我 們 的 主 耶 穌 基 督 上 不 至 於 閒 懶 不 結 果 子 了 。
人 若 沒 有 這 幾 樣 , 就 是 眼 瞎 , 只 看 見 近 處 的 , 忘 了 他 舊 日 的 罪 已 經 得 了 潔 淨 。

                                                               彼 得 後 書 1:8-9

For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they keep you from being ineffective orunfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.  For whoever lacks these qualities is so nearsighted that he is blind, having forgotten that he was cleansed from his former sins. 
                                                    1 Peter 5:8-9

    What I got today from Jesus is: Don't be ineffective and unproductive 

    What I got from Jesus is a check list so that we won't be ineffective and unproductive. Peter is warning to his recipients that the end time is very near and they needs to be fruitful.
Here is the checklist: 
1. Virtue
2. knowledge
3. Self-control
4. Steadfastness
5. Godliness
6. Brotherly affection
7. Love 

    Peter says if you can demonstrate those seven virtues in our daily life, then you are not ineffective and unproductive. So, what is your score today?

Dear Lord Jesus,
Lead us to be able to demonstrate those seven virtues in our daily life.  In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
