DAY 52 - How Is Your Supporting System?









Last year our family wanted to join the 1st tulip tour of our church to Washington but one day before the tour Michelle was diagnosed to have leukemia and the day they had the tour Michelle was in hospital. We were so joyful that we could join the tour last Saturday. We would like to share our joy and our thanksgiving to the Lord to give us a beautiful day and a wonderful fellowship time with more than 50 brothers and sisters! And Michelle had a powerful testimony of how the Lord brought her through the crisis of leukemia last year in the coach while we were on the way to Seattle. Praise the Lord!

You may choose to follow my first blog which I started in July 2009. The easiest way to go to my first blog is to type my name "Silas Ng" and have a google search. It will be on top of the list and the name of the blog is "Devotion on Fire". The site of this blog is:http://bishopsilas.blogspot.com/2011_03_01_archive.html




Today's Reading: Mark 2

Please read Mark 2 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 Mark 2:













Some men came, bringing to him a paralytic, carried by four of them. since they could not get him to Jesus because of the crowd, they made an opening in the roof above Jesus and, after digging through it, lowered the mat the paralyzed man was lying on. Mark 2: 3-4



What I received from Jesus are two questions: How is your supporting system? How much are you willing to be one of the four people doing that 'wierd' thing for your friend's healing?



There is always a big gap for Christians between loving God and loving other people. We cannot just talk the talk and not walk the walk. You need to try all your best to support other people's need and you also need to be in a good supporting system too.




Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to be willing to love others as ourselves. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.

I am going to put up the link to an important and paradigm changing talk of Bishop Chuck Murphy, our Chairman bishop, in our first Regional Conference at Richmond Emmanuel Church last October for you to watch hoping and praying that you will become a generous servant of God and that you will be transformed from a "Two-Kingdom Bondage to One-Kingdom Freedom"(Chapter 2 in Part 1 of Gary's book The Sower). You can not serve God and money. Jesus is Lord!

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!
