Today's Reading: Matthew 17

Please read Matthew 17 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 you may click this link directly for the method: Subject Shifting Devotion.pdf.

Please click this link to read Matthew 17:
After six days Jesus took with him Peter, james and John the brother of James, and led them up a high mountain by themselves. There he was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and his clothes became as white as the light. Matthew 17: 1-2

When our sons were in Grade one, they loved "show and tell". Michelle and I had all kinds of wonderful stories about how they did a good show and were appreciated by their teachers.

What I received from Jesus today in this chapter was His 'show and tell' about what His daily devotion was like. It would not be just a single incidence but a daily experience when Jesus went up to whatever mountain or a place to be alone with the Heavenly Father. And similar things would happen. That was how Moses received his face becoming too bright for the Israelites to see after he met God.

Well, we cannot talk to Moses and Elijah as Jesus did but we surely can talk to Jesus like good friends and receive His light to shine on us so that we won't be covered by the darkness around us. God said, "This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased. Listen to him!" May we meet Jesus daily, listen to him and show forth the light of Christ through our lifestyle of Christlikeness!

Dear Lord Jesus,

Help us to have a daily personal intimate relationship with you so that we can be in your light. In this way, we will show your light to others through our lifestyle of Christlikeness. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.

As you see in the photos Michelle and I did some gardening to decorate the entrance of our home. How wonderful today was that we could go out on a sunny day to buy flowers and soil then together we enjoyed a time to be together to give some color to our home.

Welcome! The purpose of this blog is to encourage those who join our Disciplers 123 to have a place to start their 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!
