Day 202 - Be A Role Model

Please click this NEW LINK to pray for us(March 9, 2010 to June 16)!!!

Today’s Reading: Titus 2

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 disciple. 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 disciple to walk with you daily to enrich your spiritual journey. So, shall we start this journey with Jesus Christ our Lord now!

Please read Titus 2: 1 – 15 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.)

Titus 2: 7

Our whole family is really experiencing "Devotion on Fire" today! Praise the Lord!

Ignatius went to church to have daily devotion with four youth leaders at 7a.m.(They are having daily devotion at 7a.m. every Monday, Wed. and Fri. since three months ago), I had my devotion at 8:30a.m. , then devotion with Athan and his friend Vance at 5p.m., then devotion with Michelle at 11p.m.! How wonderful! Today is the second day I use Athan's theme rather than my own. Mine is "Are You Teachable And Able to Teach?" This is the reason:

Michelle, Athan and I went to see Athan's teacher for the Teacher & Parent's conference and knew that Athan got straight "A" this term. We are so grateful to Athan's teacher for her role model to release Athan's gifts in the past three years to become a top student in all areas. Michelle and I were full of tears when we expressed our gratitude to Athan's teacher. How important it is for a teacher as a role model for his student to follow! A few hours later I thanked Ignatius for teaching Athan and he said, "Dad, I have not taught him much but I give him a good role model to follow." This is it! Jesus asked me to count the word "teach" in this chapter and there are nine there. The best way to teach is to be a good role model that others see Jesus in us. We need to be a role model to be teachable and be able to teach.

Dear Lord Jesus,
Praise the Lord that our whole family in on fire with daily devotion ! Help us to be a role model to teach other people to cherish this intimate time daily. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
