Silence

2.   Wait for God. Breathe deep for God's peace and feel His presence. Exhale your worries.

Praise and Thanksgiving

1.   Think through your day, all the times that made you smile
2.   Thank God for all those moments, and for all those people

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 shine on you that you are able to discover your sins and be willing to repent:



     “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 and having Jesus as my Lord. 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."

The Word, Time with Abba (Psalm 26:1-12, Leviticus 1:1-3:17; Mark 1:29-2:12; Proverbs  9:13-18)


    Today's main passages:
     35 Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed. 36 Simon and his companions went to look for him, 37 and when they found him, they exclaimed: “Everyone is looking for you!”
38 Jesus replied, “Let us go somewhere else—to the nearby villages—so I can preach there also. That is why I have come.” 39 So he traveled throughout Galilee, preaching in their synagogues and driving out demons.
  Mark 1:35-39

Folly is an unruly woman;
    she is simple and knows nothing.
14 She sits at the door of her house,
    on a seat at the highest point of the city,
15 calling out to those who pass by,
    who go straight on their way,
16     “Let all who are simple come to my house!”
To those who have no sense she says,
17     “Stolen water is sweet;
    food eaten in secret is delicious!
18 But little do they know that the dead are there,
    that her guests are deep in the realm of the dead.
  Proverbs 9:13-18

Let's have a time to be still and give the Holy Spirit space to speak through the passages we have just read. Offer this time up to Jesus as you listen to him.

    My Listening
    The topic I received today from Jesus isAuthority of the Kingdom of Heaven over the power of hell 

    Today's Mark 1:35-39 tells us the authority of the Kingdom of Heaven is beyond our imagination! How Jesus exercised this authority in the beginning of His ministry to preach, heal and driving out demons.

    But, today's Proverbs 9:13-18 also tells us how horrible is the power of hell, to tempt us to fall into all kinds of sexual traps, prostitution ...leading people to be fools, just as Proverbs 9:17-19 says:

            “Stolen water is sweet;
                                 food eaten in secret is delicious!
            But little do they know that the dead are there,
                                  that her guests are deep in the realm of the dead.

    
     The most important revelation today is how can we not to be tempted and suffered from the power of hell but to receive the authority of the Kingdom of Heaven to heal, free and save.

     The secret is what Jesus demonstrated to us in today's Mark's passage, Mark 1:35:


         Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed.
           
     What do you usually do early in the morning?

    The past four years and two months Richmond Emmanuel has been having 6am Morning Eucharist non-stop till now which brings wonderful blessings and big renewal to us. And, what I have vividly seen in those churches I have been to in Korea and Hong Kong which have non-stop Morning Prayer daily, they all have immense growth. I believe we have found it!

      Of course, many people(may be including you)think that why we can't pray alone ourselves at home, why need to go to our church to pray. Jesus did that!

      Well, we are not Jesus! We are lazy! I am lazy! Many people have Time with Abba at home for sometime and then they stop because of busyness, too tire...

      What is better than we gather together to copy the Word of God, to listen to the Word of God, to praise Him, worship Him, listen to sermons, Holy Communion, pray in groups...What can be better?
    
      
    Dear Lord Jesus, 
   Help us to follow your secret to receive the authority of the Kingdom of Heaven to pray early in the morning in the place you call us and prepare us to be so that we too can receive the authority of the Kingdom of Heaven to overcome the power of hell.  In Jesus name we pray. Amen.  

Reflect on these questions: 
1. How difficult it is for you to wake up like Jesus early in the morning to pray? How important could that be?

     2. What is your next step for this to happen?

知罪,認罪,悔改 (Subjective Shifting Devotion Method 轉位靈修法) http://bishopsilas.blogspot.ca/2009/08/count-down-5-subject-shifting-devotion.html)

1. 求聖靈光照,使你知罪,願意認罪悔改 
     "親愛的聖靈, 求你光照我心靈的深處, 使我看見我的罪, 我和主耶穌的阻隔, 
        求你幫助, 奉主耶穌基督名求。阿們。"

2. 透過聖靈的工作, 安靜一刻, 省察自己, 之後祈禱:
     「親愛的主耶穌,感謝你為我的罪釘死在十字架上,我願意在你面前承認我的罪(凡聖靈光照到的,請逐一說出),求你用你的寶血赦免我的罪,我願意打開心門讓你作我的救主,求你救贖我,我願意一生跟隨你讓你作我生命的主,求你帶領我。聖靈,求你充滿我,使我得著恩賜及力量去事奉主、見證主。奉主耶穌基督名求,阿們。」


親親爸父, 聆聽主話(詩篇 26:1-12; 利未記 1:1-3:17; 馬可福音  1:29-2:12;  箴言  9:13-18)

新約聖經廣東話聆聽版: https://www.hkbible.org/revelation

今日的主題經文:
     35 次 日 早 晨 , 天 未 亮 的 時 候 , 耶 穌 起 來 , 到 曠 野 地 方 去 , 在 那 裡 禱 告 。
36 西 門 和 同 伴 追 了 他 去 ,
37 遇 見 了 就 對 他 說 : 眾 人 都 找 你 。
38 耶 穌 對 他 們 說 : 我 們 可 以 往 別 處 去 , 到 鄰 近 的 鄉 村 , 我 也 好 在 那 裡 傳 道 , 因 為 我 是 為 這 事 出 來 的 。
39 於 是 在 加 利 利 全 地 , 進 了 會 堂 , 傳 道 , 趕 鬼 。
    馬可福音 1:35-39

13 愚 昧 的 婦 人 喧 嚷 ; 他 是 愚 蒙 , 一 無 所 知 。
14 他 坐 在 自 己 的 家 門 口 , 坐 在 城 中 高 處 的 座 位 上 ,
15 呼 叫 過 路 的 , 就 是 直 行 其 道 的 人 ,
16 說 : 誰 是 愚 蒙 人 , 可 以 轉 到 這 裡 來 ! 又 對 那 無 知 的 人 說 :
17 偷 來 的 水 是 甜 的 , 暗 吃 的 餅 是 好 的 。
18 人 卻 不 知 有 陰 魂 在 他 那 裡 ; 他 的 客 在 陰 間 的 深 處 。
    箴言 9:13-18

現在讓你有一個安靜的時刻,給聖靈一個空間,讓主耶穌可以藉着剛才讀過的經文,親自對你説話。


 我的聆聽
日我從主耶穌領受的主題是天國的權柄勝過地獄的權勢

    今日馬可福音1:35-39 告訴我們天國的權柄多麼厲害,主耶穌在傳道一開始便施展了他傳道、醫病及趕鬼的大能,真是無堅不摧,無所不能。

     然而今日箴言9:13-18告訴我們地獄的權勢是多麼可怕,引誘人落入各種各類性的陷阱中,召妓,婚外情等等使人做了"愚蒙人",大蠢才,就有如箴言9:17-18所言:
        說 : 誰 是 愚 蒙 人 , 可 以 轉 到 這 裡 來 ! 又 對 那 無 知 的 人 說 :
          偷 來 的 水 是 甜 的 , 暗 吃 的 餅 是 好 的 。
          人 卻 不 知 有 陰 魂 在 他 那 裡 ; 他 的 客 在 陰 間 的 深 處 。

    
     今日最重要給我們的啓示是在魔鬼的權勢中如何可以不被引誘及苦害,進一步更得着天國的權柄去被主耶穌差遣去施行醫治、釋放及拯救。秘訣就是主耶穌得力得天父指引的秘訣,就是今日的馬可福音1:35:
         次 日 早 晨 , 天 未 亮 的 時 候 , 耶 穌 起 來 , 到 曠 野 地 方 去 , 在 那 裡 禱 告 。

      你每天清早起來做甚麼呢? 經過以往四年二個月每天早上不間斷的早禱聖餐崇拜為以馬內利堂帶來大大的祝福及更新改變,更在韓國及香港親眼看到,親身體驗到幾間每天早上有早禱的教會之興起及増長,我相信我們找到了! 

      當然,很多人認為我們為何不能自己像主耶穌一様自己禱告靈修? 當然好!但人是懶的,自己做下做下便懶下來,大家一起在教會抄寫主話,聆聽主言,讚美,敬拜,聽講道,聖餐,一起祈禱,有甚麼好得過這樣呢? 

 親愛的主耶穌, 
 求你使我們能因着跟隨你得着天國權柄的秘訣,每天清早天未光的時候就到你為我們預備的地方禱告而得到天國的權柄,勝過地獄的權勢奉主耶穌基督名求,阿們。
     
      省察問題 
      1. 你認為每天清早天未光的時候就到主為你預備的地方禱告有何難度?有何重要?

  2. 的下一步實際的行動是甚麼
   

     家庭角落
找機會與家人一起分享今日的領受。
