DAY 181 (2019) - Watch Over! Watch Out! Watch Me! (Please click here for English podcast)




Silence

1.   Put on your “brakes” and stop for a moment of 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. 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 142:1-7; 2 Kings 17:1-18:12; Acts 20:1-38, Proverbs 18:6-7)




Today's main passage:
 28 Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God, which he bought with his own blood. 29 I know that after I leave, savage wolves will come in among you and will not spare the flock. 30 Even from your own number men will arise and distort the truth in order to draw away disciples after them. 31 So be on your guard! Remember that for three years I never stopped warning each of you night and day with tears.
32 “Now I commit you to God and to the word of his grace, which can build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified. 33 I have not coveted anyone’s silver or gold or clothing. 34 You yourselves know that these hands of mine have supplied my own needs and the needs of my companions. 35 In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ ”
36 When Paul had finished speaking, he knelt down with all of them and prayed. 37 They all wept as they embraced him and kissed him. 38 What grieved them most was his statement that they would never see his face again. Then they accompanied him to the ship.     Acts 20:28-38

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

My Listening
Today we have one of the most moving passages in the Bible! Paul's last word to those overseers(bishops) and elders (Priests/pastors) whom he trained in Ephesus for three years. He reminded them three most important things: 

1. Watch Over - A Shepherd
    As shepherds anointed by the Holy Spirit, they needed to watch over themselves first so as to have a close walk with Jesus and to watch over those whom Jesus appointed for them to watch over as their sheep!  

2. Watch out - A Soldier
    They needed to be those soldiers taking watch overnight to watch out not to be attacked by the enemy! Not let their sheep to be stolen, to be killed and to be destroyed! (John 10:10) 

3. Watch me - A Mentor
    Paul commanded them to watch him as a model of a good mentor so that they can be good mentors too! 

May the Holy Spirit anoints you that you can receive the authority of Jesus to demolish Satan's plan and to become a good shepherd, a good soldier and a good mentor!

Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to receive the authority of you to demolish Satan's plan and to become a good shepherd, a good soldier and a good mentor!. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.

Reflect on these questions:
1. What kind of inspiration and calling have you received from today's message ?

2. What is your action to become a good shepherd, a good soldier and a good mentor?

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 142:1-7; 列王紀下 17:1-18:12; 使徒行傳 20:1-38; 箴言 18:6-7)

今日的主題經文:


28 聖 靈 立 你 們 作 全 群 的 監 督 , 你 們 就 當 為 自 己 謹 慎 , 也 為 全 群 謹 慎 , 牧 養 神 的 教 會 , 就 是 他 用 自 己 血 所 買 來 的 ( 或 作 : 救 贖 的 ) 。
29 我 知 道 , 我 去 之 後 必 有 兇 暴 的 豺 狼 進 入 你 們 中 間 , 不 愛 惜 羊 群 。
30 就 是 你 們 中 間 , 也 必 有 人 起 來 說 悖 謬 的 話 , 要 引 誘 門 徒 跟 從 他 們 。
31 所 以 你 們 應 當 儆 醒 , 記 念 我 三 年 之 久 晝 夜 不 住 的 流 淚 、 勸 戒 你 們 各 人 。
32 如 今 我 把 你 們 交 託 神 和 他 恩 惠 的 道 ; 這 道 能 建 立 你 們 , 叫 你 們 和 一 切 成 聖 的 人 同 得 基 業 。
33 我 未 曾 貪 圖 一 個 人 的 金 、 銀 、 衣 服 。
34 我 這 兩 隻 手 常 供 給 我 和 同 人 的 需 用 , 這 是 你 們 自 己 知 道 的 。
35 我 凡 事 給 你 們 作 榜 樣 , 叫 你 們 知 道 應 當 這 樣 勞 苦 , 扶 助 軟 弱 的 人 , 又 當 記 念 主 耶 穌 的 話 , 說 : 施 比 受 更 為 有 福 。
36 保 羅 說 完 了 這 話 , 就 跪 下 同 眾 人 禱 告 。
37 眾 人 痛 哭 , 抱 著 保 羅 的 頸 項 , 和 他 親 嘴 。
38 叫 他 們 最 傷 心 的 , 就 是 他 說 : 以 後 不 能 再 見 我 的 面 那 句 話 , 於 是 送 他 上 船 去 了 。   使徒行傳 20:28-38

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
今日使徙行傳的經文是聖經其中一段非常感人的描述,是保羅對他用了三年時間在以弗所訓練的監督(Overseers 即主教)及長老(Elders 即牧師)的最後遺言,主要提醒他們三樣最重要的位份:

1. 睇緊呀! (Watch Over) - 一個牧人
    他們作為主恩膏的牧羊人,先要睇緊自己去緊緊跟隨大牧人耶穌,然後去睇緊主付託給他們的羊!

2. 睇住呀! (Watch out) - 一個軍人
   要好像守夜的軍人,睇住戰線,以防敵人入侵! 不要讓魔鬼來偷羊,殺羊,毀滅羊 (約翰福音 10:10)。

3. 睇我呀! (Watch me) - 一個師傅
    保羅吩咐他們睇佢作為一個師傅的模範,使他們也能作個好師傅


願聖靈恩膏你,領受主耶穌的權柄,摧毀魔鬼的詭計,作個好牧人,軍人師傅!

親愛的主耶穌,
求你使我們能領受你給我們的權柄,摧毀魔鬼的詭計,作個好牧人,軍人師傅主耶穌基督名求,阿們。


省察問題
1. 今日的信息給您怎様一個提醒及召喚

2. 你如何能以信心及行動作個好牧人,軍人師傅?


家庭角落
找機會與家人分享你今日的領受。
