DAY 334 - I Love You Lord!!!

Today's Reading: Exodus 24


Please read Exodus 24 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.)

Moses then took the blood, sprinkled it on the people and said, "This is the blood of the covenant that the Lord has made with you in accordance with all these words."

Exodus 24:8


Jesus reminded me of what Michelle asked me three months ago when she shaved all her hairs, "Do you still love me now when I have no hair and look so awful?" My answer made her smile and she said, "It's really not easy to live out the marriage covenant:

I Silas, take you, Michelle,

to be my wife, to have and to hold from this day forward;

for better, for worse,

for richer, for poorer,

in sickness and in health,

to love and to cherish,

till death us do part,

according to God's holy law;

and this is my solemn vow.


You really live it out, thank you!"


Michelle's leukemia helps me to understand how much I love her and how difficult it is in reality for a husband to love his wife or for a wife to love her husband according to the wedding covenant.


Here in this chapter shows a similar marriage covenant between God and His people. God through Moses showed them the covenan to which they replied two times by saying, "Everything the Lord has said, we will do." I have officiated many Marriage services and what I received is that there is no guarantee that both parties will live out the covenant. If that is a car lease, then you need to fulfill the contract's requirement but for wedding not so. As for the relationship with God, Moses took half of the blood in bowls and the other half sprinkled on the altar as a symbol of the blood of the covenant the Lord made with all people.


Do you understand that there is a blood covenant that God sacrificed His one and only begotten Son for us? We are in this kind of covenant with God and yet we always do not know. How are you willing to stay in God's covenant so that you can say and live out:


I , take you, Jesus Christ our Lord,

to be my Lord, to have and to hold from this day forward;

for better, for worse,

for richer, for poorer,

in sickness and in health,

to love and to cherish,

that we won't depart and into eternity,

according to God's holy law;

and this is my solemn vow.



Dear Lord Jesus,

Help me to fulfill my vow and live out the covenant to you. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

HELLO HOLY SPIRIT!

It’s such a joy to witness the awesome power of the Holy Spirit moving among the Christians here. As we were worshiping at Dukum MKC church, there was so much singing, shouting, dancing, and a glorious exaltation of Jesus. The Holy Spirit is working so powerfully among the people here and no one holds back in worship.

Free. Full-hearted. Open. Jubilant.

That is worship.

Although I did not understand a word they say (with the exception of J├ęsus), I was worshiping in spirit and in truth. Can you imagine a church made of mud and steel plating, and yet it is FILLED with passionate worshipers who want only to praise God with their whole heart, body, mind, and soul? WOW!

Yesterday we went to visit 2 homes. At the first house we visited a girl and her sister, cousin, and mom...

Welcome! The purpose of this blog is to encourage Christians to have daily devotion - a wonderful and intimate time with Jesus.
There are three reasons for you to use this blog as your daily devotion:
1. A healthy spiritual diet - One chapter of the Bible daily. We really need at least one chapter of Bible daily so that we are well fed.
2. A good example of Spiritual Journaling - What I have committed for 1,189 days(the Bible has 1,189 chapters)to write this daily post is not for teaching purposes but this is my daily spiritual journal - I write down what I hear from Jesus and how I experience His intimate relationship with me each day. I have launched a wide-spectrum research on daily devotion and have found out that there are less than 10% of Christians that are having daily devotion. Out of that 10%, many having daily devotion are doing so because of guilt (they know that they are Christians and need to have daily devotion and feel guilty if they don’t do that), duty (they need to fulfill their duty as a Christian) or study(lots of Christians primarily use their daily devotion as a time to study the Bible). I do pray and hope that you will make up your mind to have a relational daily devotion so that you can have an intimate time with Jesus. I pray that you will write your own spiritual journal as well.
3. An online discipler – One of the reasons that so many Christians do not have daily devotion is because they do not have a discipler. A discipler can help them build up this basic element of discipleship when they first become Christians. The best way for you is to have a discipler to walk with you for a certain period of time so that daily devotion become a good habit. Or, you may have a small group of two to three people to encourage and be accountable to each other so that you won’t stop your daily devotion. I offer myself as your online discipler to walk with you daily to enrich your spiritual journey. So, shall we start this journey with Jesus Christ our Lord now!
