DAY 236 - Walk in Love

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

Today’s Reading: 2 John

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 2 John 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 2 John:

As you have heard from the beginning, his command is that you walk in love. 2 John 6

"Walk in love"! An hour ago I walked my wife Michelle from her ward to the operating room so that they can put a tube through her chest to her heart to get ready for the chemotherapy tomorrow morning. That walk is really a walk in love! I have never been so in love with Michelle since we dated each other early in 1981!

What Michelle heard today from Jesus of this chapter is so wonderful. She said, "Normally verse three means little to me but today it was such a powerful comfort to me that Jesus told me 'grace, mercy and peace from God the Father and from Jesus Christ, the Father's Son, will be with us in truth and love.'

Praise the Lord that it is so true that when Jesus speaks, it can turn a simple seemingly not important verse to a powerful word of comfort!

It's now 11:50p.m. Saturday night. Michelle just completed the procedure and came back. She is so sleepy and tired, lying on her bed. She turned her head and said, "I love you so much!" I thank Jesus for this love that surpasses everything!

Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank you for your love that we can love. Help Michelle to have a good sleep that she can be well prepared for tomorrow for the chemotherapy. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

  3. Dear Tak Yin,

    I am your old Pui Ching classmate Chan Hung Ki 陳鴻基 and is usually an odd guest(seldom show up) in our Alumni gathering.
    In my philosophy, all life came to this world by their own causes. They live in this world and what they done are the cause of their future destiny. That is "good causes good, bad causes bad", the principle of Cause and Effect因果律. I don't know When and Where Michelle did in the past to get this leukaemia as one of her manifested Effect in this life. It doesn't matter, my philo is Live in Present to do everything as best as possible and don't mind the result. We only look forward, and accept any good and bad situation with a Mind of Equanimity. In Bible, I think it is 忘記背後,努力面前,向著標杆直跑. Though I don't know your couple well, as a dedicated Christian family, I trust you guys are humans doing good and no bad. Then by Law of Cause and Effect, no matter what the present situation is, you guys will end up in good destiny, though I don't know what and where, Let It Be!

  4. Thanks Ed and Janice, Andy and Amy and Chan Hung Ki!
