What I received from Jesus today is: Who Wins When We Kill Each Others?

How moving it was when the two brothers embraced each others and forgave each others! I really do not understand why we as Christians have so many relational problems or even want to kill each others? Who wins when we kill each others? Satan wins! Other people seeing our killing each others make them to be sure that they will never be a Christian. What good is that if we keep on dishonoring God like that?!

Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to forgive and accept as Esau and Jacob forgave and accepted each others. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.


**Five days ago(Sunday) Michelle and I were having lunch with our church choir members. Our Music Director, Edmund Cheung said, "Silas, I understand what you said about the best thing in last night's Schola Cantorum Emmanuel's concert was "life". I really experienced a powerful outburst of life in all of us when we sang especially when we sang "Hallelujah" and "Worthy is the Lamb/ Amen"." Yes, it was indeed a powerful concert yesterday night. Please click the two links in this post to listen to how we praise God yesterday. The recording was just taken from a small camera and not a good recording. I'll give you the link of our official recording once Andy Li is done for the whole concert.

When we praise the Lord like that spirit in this psalm we will know the "life" and power right away of the joy we received when we praise Him! All of our Schola members and those who attended yesterday's(Saturday's) concert felt the same way that we were richly blessed when we richly praised our Lord!

Thanks to our son Ignatius who took a wonderful and powerful photo of me capturing the "life" in this concert and with his comment on his face book:

Live fully. Live passionately.
You know that feeling when you do something you love, and time seems to stand still?
It's not quite clear, but you've lost in the moment of it.

Congrats to Schola Cantorum for singing Handel's Messiah today!
