DAY 357 - Honor Your Pastors Is to Honor God

Today's Reading: Leviticus 7

Please read Leviticus 7 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.)

This is the portion of the offerings made to the Lord by fire that were allotted to Aaron and his sons on the day they were presented to serve the Lord as priests. On the day they were anointed, the Lord commanded that the Israelites give this to them as their regular share for the generations to come.

Leviticus 6:14-15

What I heard from Jesus today is the title today: To honour your pastors is to honour God.

It is so obvious that God wants His people to respect and honor His servants. There are so many cases of burnout, depression, insecurity, and bitterness that haver happened to pastors. This would not happen if more Christians know that it is the heart of our Heavenly Father to honor His servants. But it is the heart of Satan, the Deceiver, to deceive God's people so as to not respect and honor God's servant.

The first thing you need to do is to pray for your pastors daily. Pray by naming their names and seeing their faces in your heart so that you can love and embrace them with your prayers. If you can do that, then the Deceiver has no way to pull you away from the trusting relationship with your pastors and God's army will be in a right of command. What a disaster if soldiers do not follow their captains!

The Lord confirmed this message by giving me a surprise Birthday celebration from one of the three couples group that I led yesterday night. We had a dinner gathering not in our usual schedule. They said that it was to celebrate Michelle's recovery and the success of our church's Fun Day last Sunday. Then we found out that was a triple celebration with a birthday cake for my birthday which will be this coming Sunday, August 15!

I received today's title in the morning yesterday when I was having my daily devotion and then the birthday cake at night. Do you think that this is a coincidence?

To honour your pastors is to honour God!!!

Dear Lord Jesus,

Thank you for giving us a wonderful triple celebration last night. Help me to honor all your servants so that you will be honored. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

My son, Ignatius, completed his three weeks mission in Ethiopia a few days ago.We are so joyful to welcome him home and know that he experienced God mightily in that three weeks. His one word of experience is "JOY"! Please click this link to read his wonderful sharing:

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!
