DAY 133 - Names after names

Today’s Reading: Romans 16

Please read Romans 16: 1 – 27 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 Romans 16:

I urge you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and put obstacles in your way that are contrary to the teaching you have learned. Keep away from them.
Romans 16:17

A missional lifestyle comes with names after names of friends, helpers, co-workers. Jesus asks me to count those names and here is the result:

1. One who delivered Paul’s letter to Rome(Phoebe, Romans 16: 1-2).

2. Twenty-seven names of co-workers, helpers and friends in Rome, not including their house group members.

3. Eight names of co-workers, helpers and friends with Paul to send greetings.

A missional lifestyle also comes with people who cause divisions and put obstacles. Paul urged us to watch out and keep away from them.

How many names do we have as co-workers, helpers and friends as we serve the Lord? How many names do we know that we need to watch out and keep away from? Do we intentionally or unintentionally become those people who cause divisions and put obstacles to God’s servants?

Dear Lord Jesus,
Help me to build up relationships with more co-workers, helpers and friends, and to enjoy the team work as Paul did. Open my eyes to see those names that I need to watch out and keep away from. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Many wonderful things have happened in the past 100 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.
