The easiest way is to take one hour slot for the whole week. What you need to do is very simple. Choose one dayThe easiest way is to take one hour slot for the whole week then prayerfully remembering the ministry of ACiC(ACiC has two Networks: ACiC, Anglican Coalition in Canada and AI, Asian Initiative). You may use the whole hour in prayer or you can still do you work in your office but use as much time as you can to pray and the other time work prayerfully that hour to pray for our ministry. I deeply believe that this is a way to draw as many participation as we can in prayers. I encourage you to participate. We need you to join us! Trust in the power of prayers!

Today's Reading: Isaiah 5

Please read Isaiah 5 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 Isaiah 5:
He dug it up and cleared it of stones and planted it with the choicest vines.
He built a watchtower in it and cut out a winepress as well.
Then he looked for a crop of good grapes,
but it yielded only bad fruit.
Isaiah 5: 2

What I received from Jesus today is: What have you done to my vineyard?

God asks us a very important question! What's your answer?
What have you done to His vineyard actually? How hard have you been working with His vineyard and what kind of fruit have you got? Any bad fruit? Why?

1. We have "no regard for the deeds of the Lord, and no respect for the work of his hands." (v. 12) We are blind!
2. We are "lack of understanding"(v. 13). We lose the appetite to learn more of those things God wants us to learn.
3. We are "arrogant" (v. 15) and full of "Pride"!
Am I talking about other people? Are you one of those people?

This is the first chapter in Isaiah that the line "Yet for all this, his anger is not turned away, his hand is still upraised." (v. 25) You will see the same repeated message from now on in other chapters. God was angry and His hand upraised to hit on those stiff-neck guys. Hope it is not you! It's so painful to see how we as human beings can stir up God's anger and punishment like that!

Wake up, farmers! Let try all our best and be willing to give all we've got to join our Lord Jesus Christ and His team to build a good vineyard!

Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to understand that we are the anointed farmers prepared by you and are being called to work with you to build a good vineyeard . In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
