DAY 99 - A memorial offering before God

Today’s Reading: Acts 10

(Please read Acts 10: 1 – 48 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 this blog. You may click this link directly for the method: Subject Shifting Devotion.pdf . (You may begin with a song to praise the Lord and complete you devotion by singing another praise song.) Please click the links below to Acts 9:


Cornelius and all his family were devout and God-fearing; he gave generously to those in need and prayed to God regularly..."Your prayers and gifts to the poor have come up as a memorial offering before God." Acts 10: 2 - 4

Jesus asked me today when I was having my daily devotion, "Do you know what is your memorial offering before God?"

The lifestyle of Cornelius to give and pray regularly is a good reminder to me of what my memorial offering before God can be. It's just not the lifestyle of Christians nowadays. I see lots of Christians, including myself sometimes, that have two distinctive ways of lifestyle:
1. A consumer mentality to get: What have I got from today's sermon, bible style, daily devotion...I can't tithe for I have not got enough, I can't serve for I have no time...
2. Do not know how to pray, do not pray and do not understanding the power of prayers

As a gentile, Cornelius knew "to do what is right"(Acts 10: 34) in giving and in prayers. Do you know?

Dear L0rd Jesus,
Help me to do the right things according to the lifestyle that you want your children to have so that I can learn to give and to pray. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

We are going to have another phase of 100 days of prayer. We have two weeks time to complete our first time ever 100 days/24 hours Prayer Campaign and I am calling you in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ to fill in your names in the new list below to pray for 100 days more. Many wonderful things have happened in the past 96 days. Can we follow our King, our Shepherd, our Lord Jesus Christ to use an hour’s time to pray for His protection and blessings to my new ministry as the Bishop of ACiC/AI, all our ACiC/AI clergy, leaders and people? Pray that in the Holy and Mighty Name of Jesus Christ our Lord, we can win over Satan's tricks, in order to strengthen our brothers and sisters so that His Kingdom will be extended.
