《Today’s spiritual meditation》: ““Who are you, Lord?” Saul (who persecuted Jesus) asked.” (Act 9:5)
Meditation one: You have called Jesus “Lord, Lord” for many years, but how much do you know about Jesus Christ? You have been baptized and you are eager to serve in the church, but do you and Jesus have a direct relationship of “I and the Lord”? This is not the same as the indirect relationship of “I and it”. Do not assume that your parents believe in God so you naturally become be a child of God. Believe in God is a personal close relationship built between you and God. The Bible said clearly: “Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God” (John 1:12).
Meditation two: We are children of God, but have we obeyed the guidance of the Holy Spirit in all things? Have we also revered Lord Jesus Christ as Lord and King? Christians not only live the life of “believing in the Lord”, but also live the life of “obeying the Lord”. Only through “trust and obey”, one can experience God’s presence and abundance.
Prayer: Dear Lord Jesus, You are the savior of my life and the Master of my life. Help me to focus my life on pursuing You – to know You more deeply, to love You more purely, and to serve You more humbly. I pray in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen!
Intercession: Pray for the online worship of the churches and the members’ care for one another. Pray God to let the Holy Spirit flow unimpeded in worship, fellowship, training, care, preaching, offering, and prayer. Pray for the members’ care for one another, building each other up, unity in spirit, and serving together in love. Pray that God will raise the church to shine for the Lord.
