DAY 369 - Aye, Aye Sir!

Today's Reading: Leviticus 19

Please read Leviticus 19 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.)

"Keep all my decrees and all my laws and follow them. I am the Lord." Leviticus 19: 37

Today someone told me that one of his friends is following my blog to have his daily devotion. His friend said that it is really very difficult to read and understand Leviticus. But as a leader of a church, he needs to have the patience to read on, even though sometimes he does not understand.

I think after this chapter today, you may think that you need to stop tomorrow until my blog comes to maybe Deuteronomy, a more interesting and useful book. So, Leviticus is "useless"? And you want to stop for it does not apply to your life? No, don't do that.

Yes, there are lots of sacrificial system laws and some hygiene regulations that God wanted His people to follow, but we do not do that now. And there are ethical laws that we need to follow even now. So, which are those we need to follow and those we don't? You should know it. Say in verse 19, "Do not wear clothing woven of two kinds of material." Do you follow this? You don't need to buy clothes anymore, for it would be hard for you to find those materials now.

What I heard today is how much effort God exerted to tell, train and test His people so that they live out a life in which God is their Lord and their God. Whenever I come to this kind of passages, I see the training officer for new soldiers yielding loudly, "What, what do you say?" "Yes, Sir. Aye, Aye Sir." "What? I can't hear? Louder!" "Yes, Sir, Aye, Aye Sir." "What? Louder! Louder!" "Yes, Sir. Aye, Aye Sir."

God used those method in Moses' time, and He uses same, similar or different methods now to us. God always has His tailored-made method to tell, train and test us. Do you know how to say, "Yes, Sir. Aye, Aye Sir"?

Dear Lord Jesus,

You are my Lord and my God. Yes, Sir. Aye, Aye Sir. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

My son, Ignatius, completed his three weeks mission in Ethiopia a few days ago.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!
