DAY 268 - Come Out and Bring Out

Today’s Reading: Genesis 8

Please read Genesis 8 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 Genesis :





Then God said to Noah, "Come out of the ark, you and your wife and your sons and their wives. Bring out every kind of living creature that is with you - the birds, the animals, and all the creatures that move along the ground - so they can multiply on the earth and be fruitful and increase in number upon it." Genesis 8: 15-17

Jesus led me to ponder upon these three verses, especially on the invitation of two actions: 'Come out' and 'bring out'. Without the coming out by themselves and the bringing out of what they received, a new creation could not happen. God made us in his own likeness and image so that we can multiply, be fruitful and increase in number. But, humanity was corrupted, could not multiply, be fruitful and increase in number to honor God. Instead "all people on earth had corrupted their ways"(Genesis 6: 12). They lived in their own world, doing their own things without God!

Come out! Bring out what you have received from God so that you can multiply, be fruitful and increase in number! Don't wait any more, it's time for you to multiply, be fruitful and increase in number to glorify our Lord Jesus Christ!

Dear Lord Jesus,

Help me to be able to call more brothers and sisters to come out and to bring out what they've received from you to multiply, be fruitful and increase in number for your name's sake. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

I came home at last from a four day's AMiAs bishops' Retreat in Denver. Iggy and Athan have been so good taking care of mom when I was away. Michelle is good both physically and spiritually. She told me that she became aware these last few days that she cried only on the day(April 9 Friday) when she knew she had leukemia and then never again. She thought that is very unusual and it must because of people's prayers.

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!
