DAY 406 - Make An Additional Offering

Praise the Lord that we have completed 400 days/24 hours Prayer Campaign! Without this prayer shield I think I might not be able to face the storm of Michelle's leukemia. You really need to believe in this kind of power of prayers! You really need to join us!

This is how the Lord commanded me more than a year ago to teach as many people as I can to pray as never before and to experience the power of prayers! Have you experienced yet?

Please sign up for the 5th stage - 500 days

  • Today's Reading: Numbers 29
  • Please read Numbers 29 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 Numbers 29:

    Chinese: 29&version=CUV

    NIV: 29&version=NIV

    ESV: 29&version=ESV

    Message: 29&version=MSG

    "In addition to what you vow and your freewill offerings, prepare these for the Lord at your appointed feasts: your burnt offerings, grain offerings, drink offerings and fellowship offerings." Numbers 29:39

    More offerings and so complicated, why?

    I always think of how they train special forces to make them 'listen and obey' soldiers so that they can face the most difficult situation. Yes, God challenges us with offerings, money, time, energy and everything because only He knows what kind of "spiritual warfare" we are facing. According to accurate statistics, only one third of pastors can finish well (I wrote two third two days and that was wrong!). How about other Christians and not pastors!

    Our Network Leadership team of ACiC has a wonderful and powerful retreat in Seattle the past three days with our new coach Dr. Terry Walling. This is one of the many examples that we as a group of five "Band of Brothers" are willing to make an additional offering so that we can lead ACiC into a new paradigm under the coaching of Dr. Walling. Dr. Walling is one of the D. Min. professor of Fuller and two other seminaries and a professional coaching consultant. He is also Bishop Chuck Murphy's personal coach. We are honoured to have him to coach us for the past three days!

    This is the time for you to make an addition offering to the Lord!

    Dear Lord Jesus,

    Help me to offer what I have to you selflessly. 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:

    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!
