DAY 347 - Holy, Holy, Holy God Almighty

Today's Reading: Exodus 37

Please read Exodus 37 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 Exodus 37:

Chinese: 37&version=CUV

NIV: 37&version=NIV

ESV: 37&version=ESV

Message: 37&version=MSG

Bezalel made the ark of acacia wood - two and a half cubits long, a cubit and a half wide , and a cubit and a half high. Exodus 37: 1

Every paragraph in this chapter starts with either "Bezalel made", "He made(Bezalel)" or "They made". I sense here very strongly a careful, wonderful and difficult teamwork to carry God's exact command to build a place for the presence of God.

If you were those people making those sacred instruments and those two million Israelites who heard how they were prepared and built, you would have a different attitude when you are close to the Tabernacle. Nowadays people are running and even jumping to the Holy of Holies because we don't have that concept. Is that good or bad? Well, it depends.

I remember many years ago a 90 year-old Archdeacon told me how he received Christ. He was in China and an Anglican priest invited him to the Sunday service. He went 15 minutes earlier thinking that he could be the first one entering the church that Sunday. But when he entered the church, he found the church was full and everyone was already kneeling and praying without any sound at all in that church. He then told me that he believed in Jesus that very moment. Can you ever think that our attitude in worship could influence a non-Christian's mind from not believing to believing?

I hope that there will be one day everyone from Richmond Emmanuel Church arrive 15 minutes before the worship preparing their hearts to worship the Lord!

Dear Lord Jesus,

Help me to be able to teach more people to worship you in a way you would like them to. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Michelle went to our 9a.m. weekly Prayer Meeting and then our couples group. Brothers and sisters rejoiced seeing her unexpectedly. Please pray that she will receive a good report this coming Monday.

My son, Ignatius, completed his three weeks mission in Ethiopia yesterday.We are so joyful to welcome him home and know that he experienced God mightily in that three weeks. His one word of experience is "JOY"! Please click this link to read his wonderful sharing:

Face book version:

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!
