DAY 270 - Is Your Name There?

Today’s Reading: Genesis 10

Please read Genesis 10 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.)

These are the clans of Noah's sons, according to their lines of descent, within their nations. From these the nations spread out over the earth after the flood. Genesis 10: 32

Verse 32 shows the purpose of this chapter. According to the Expositor's Bible Commentary "All those names is to give the reader a panoramic view of the nations as a backdrop for the remainder of the events of the Book of Genesis."

Many people do not even read this chapter, for they don't think that there is much important in those names and have no time to find what is so important to those names. So they skip it!

What Jesus shows me today are two things:

1. Why some names are important and recorded in the Bible but others don't. How important is our name and the names of our children and children's children to the Kingdom of God? We don't care for names but with this kind of name, we need to be very careful.

2. Why among the seven sons of Japhethites were only two sons names recorded? The same thing appears at Ham. He had four sons but only Cush was there and then Cush had five sons and only Raamah was there. What happened? Were they corrupted, no good...? I looked at some commentaries but I can't find a good answer. What I discovered is to think of Exodus 20: 5-6 as to the importance of our role to our clan:

You shall not bow down to the idols or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.

You need to put more time to your family and to raise up your children to be good disciples of Christ, instead of running here and there to be a workaholic doing lots of things but accomplish nothing.

Dear Lord Jesus,

Help me to raise up my sons and my grandchildren to be good disciples of you. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Michelle, Athan and I walked our dog this evening. It was good for Michelle to take a walk outside and she is good today. Thanks for all your prayers. And please pray that she can attend Iggy's UBC's graduation at Chan's Centre on 26 May.

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!
