Today’s Reading: 1 Corinthians 15
Please read 1 Corinthians 15: 1 – 58 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.)

Therefore my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. 1 Corinthians 15: 58
A clergy friend told me that a new bishop came to preach in his church 15 years ago, and that the main message was that there is no resurrection and Jesus was never risen. They never invited their bishop to preach in their church again.
There are so many things in our lifetime to move us to a state just like the non-believers, yet people can still be bishops and priests! It is not easy to stand firm, for it is not easy to know where to stand firm. I think Paul’s advice is a very meaningful and useful one:
Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain. 1 Corinthians 15: 58
Give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord or to the Church is not always the same. People can do a lot for the Church but can be doing totally opposite things to the standard of the Lord. It is always in this cast that Christians are confused, deceived and cannot stand firm.
Do you have a personal relationship with Jesus? Are you able to listen to Him and enjoy His presence daily or are you just doing things for the Church?
Dear Lord Jesus,
I give thanks for your daily presence that I can enjoy everyday as a blessing. Help me to stand firm so that nothing can move me away from you and so that I can serve you with all my heart, with all my soul and with all my mind. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
