Joash did what was right in the eyes of the Lord all the years of Jehoiada the priest.
2 Chronicles 24: 2
After the death of Jehoiada, the officials of Judah came and paid homage to the king, and he listened to them. They abandoned the temple of the Lord, the God of their fathers, and worshiped Asherah poles and idols. Because of their guilt, God's anger came upon Judah and Jerusalem. 2 Chronicles 24: 17-18
What I received from Jesus today is: You need to be a Discipler123!!!
This chapter shows the importance of a mentor. It's funny but sad that King Joash did what was right in the eyes of the Lord only when his mentor Jehoiada the priest was still living. Jehoiada was a good teacher and mentor who taught King Joash well that he could be a good king for 39 years and a bad king for one year and he died! Jehoiada could not bring King Joash to have a personal relationship with God like King David so when Jehoiada was no more than King Joash was no more!
We need to be a Discipler to bring people to become disciples of Jesus. In three days time we have completed a "test run" of Discipler123 Campaign. As to build up a momentum for the four years plan of ACiC/AI of the focus of our 1st year is to raise up as many disciplers as possible we launced Discipler123 on March 6, 2011. "One discipler, two disciples for three months" is the idea to have a "fast win" of this first year focus as described by my personal coach Rev. Dr. Terry Walling. After this three months Discipler123 will be a continuous strategy for our people to use this plan any time they need to help people to start a daily personal intimate relationship with Jesus. Most people do not have daily devotion is because they do not have someone to walk with them for a period of time until they have the "desire" for that wonderful daily personal intimate relationship with Jesus. If you are reading this post then you know what I mean and this is the time our Lord Jesus Christ calls you to help two more people to experience what you have been experiencing. You need to be a Discipler123 for the rest of your life. Jesus needs you to raise up more disciples and disciplers for Him.
To be a Discipler123 is perhaps the most simple, focus and deep way to raise up disciples of Jesus.
How wonderful it would be if Jehoiada could be a Discipler123 to bring King Joash to have a daily personal intimate relationship with God!
Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to be willing to be a Discipler123 to raise up disciples and disciplers for you. In Jesus name we pray . Amen.
