    The Lord said to Moses, "Make a snake and put it up on a pole; anyone who is bitten can look at it and live." Numbers 21: 8

    Jesus says, "Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the desert, one who believes in him may have eternal life. For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3: 14-16

    It is so easy for us in our lifetime to look at wrong persons, wrong things, wrong directions and wrong everything with the result that we suffer and 'like' being bitten. Only if we turn away from those things and return to Jesus and enjoy looking at Him, worshiping Him, listen to and obey Him can we be healed and live a good life. That's God's answer to those hurting and frightening Israelites. That's Jesus' challenge and invitation to Nicodemus. And that's Jesus' challenge and invitation to you and me today.

    We need to turn our eyes to Jesus today, and everyday!

    Dear Lord Jesus,

    Help me to be able to turn my eyes to you. You are my Healer, my Savior, my Lord and my King. 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:http://21ethiopiandays.wordpress.com/

    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!
