DAY 53 - To Be with Jesus That You Can Be Sent Out(Cantonese Podcast click here)

I have a very important sharing in my original blog today about how God called me to become an Anglican priest in 1982 to link up with the message today in 1 Chronicles 17. You really have to go to this blog and share my powerful experience from Jesus in this hotel room in Florida today!!! http://bishopsilas.blogspot.com/2011_04_01_archive.html or http://bishopsilas.blogspot.com

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 3

Please read Mark 3 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 3:

Jesus appointed twelve - designating them apostles - that they might be with him and that he might send them out to preach and to have authority to drive out demons. Mark 3: 14-15

What I received from Jesus today is that He was setting an example of how we can do the same thing as he did to raise up apostles for Him. In church tradition, apostles are the bishops but in general and Biblical terms, the term may have more meanings. As in the meaning of the Greek word "apostello" means "to order one to go to an appointed place" or "to send". In this chapter we have a more clear meaning of what apostles are and how much we need more apostles.

1. Personally appointed by Jesus Christ our Lord.

2. Need to be always with Jesus.

3. Willing to be sent out by Jesus to preach and have authority to drive out demons. In John Stott's 'term', it means to bring transformation that one can become an example of Christlikeness.

Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to become apostles for you. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.

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!
