Confession and Repentance (Subjective Shifting Devotion Method http://bishopsilas.blogspot.ca/2009/08/count-down-5-subject-shifting-devotion.html)

1.  Pray for the Holy Spirit to work in you:

     “Dear Holy Spirit, shine your light into the places of darkness in my life. Show me my sins, everything that blocks me from encountering God. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”


2.  Through the Holy Spirit, examine yourself for a short silence and then pray:

     "Dear Lord Jesus, thank you for dying on the cross for our sins and being victorious over death and sin. I confess my sin to you(pause, to tell Jesus what the Holy Spirit has shown you). Forgive my sins by your blood and help me follow you. Holy Spirit, fill me that I may be able to receive your gift to love God and His people. In Jesus Name I pray, Amen."

 My Listening
       The message I got today from our Lord Jesus Christ is so moving, important and meaning: 
           "From the guilt of bloodshed to follow our awesome and powerful God"

           Yesterday I had a most memorable dinner with Bishop Peter of South Sudan in a gathering with one archbishop and thirteen bishops.

           The horrible thing is when Bishop Peter told me he had 18 people killed by rebels during their Christmas Eve service just three months ago in his Cathedral. His diocese has 15,000 Anglicans and because of this killing, there are only 35 people still stay in the Cathedral, all the other parishioners went to safer place protected by UN peace force. 

                 Today's Psalm 51:14 
                 "Deliver me from the guilt of bloodshed, O God,
                 You who are God my Saviour."

                He told me he was in a kind of depression but only because of Jesus is with Him that he can get through this tragedy! The past two days when I talked to him I feel a great peace of the presence of God in him and a kind of joy that surpass every kind of darkness caused by the losing of his own people.

                 Bishop Peter of South Sudan gives us a perfect example of today's passages in Joshua and Luke that when we become a true disciple of Christ to really listen and obey, we know which way to go!

                Joshua 3:4, "Then you will know which way to go."

               And from today's passage in Luke, God will exalt us like He exalted Joshua. What we need is to give to those who has nothing good to give back to us! We so often do things for those who will give us benefit or reward. Bishop Peter's way is to be with his people in the Cathedral, even there are only 35 people left!

                That's the way of turning the bloodshed to follow our awesome and powerful God!

                I see in his moving witness to all of us how awesome and powerful God really is and I can see the light of Christ in his face giving me so much encouragement!







     
     Dear Lord Jesus,
    Help us not to do things to other for reward but to give so that we can experience that you are our awesome and powerful God. In Jesus name we pray. Amen. 
                    
      Reflect on these questions:
   1.  Who are those people you invite for lunch and dinner and those who you care for? Do you want to get some benefit and reward from them?


    2.  How can you not take part in the bloodshed of hurting other people because of your pride, greed, envy and anger?
    
     3. What have you received from Jesus today?


    Praise and Thanksgiving
Let's give thanks for God with us. Let us praise Him:
