Hello Members and Friends of Heritage United Methodist!
Each day during the Disicple’s Heart series, I’ll be sending you the 5-minute “Lunchtime Lectio.” Lectio Divina means “divine reading,” and it’s the last part of each reading for the day in the Disciple’s Heart daily workbook.
- Read the day’s passage of Scripture slowly, listening for the resonance of each word in your soul as you read it.
- Read it through again, listening for the word or phrase that grabs your heart more than any other in the passage.
- Spend a moment in quiet prayer, simply saying the word or phrase over and over again, asking God to reveal to you why that one stood out.
- Finally, share in the comments below which word or phrase stood out to you. If you feel led to share, include a sentence or two about why God pointed you toward these words in particular.
Perhaps together we can see what God is saying to us as a church when we consider together what He’s sharing with us as individuals!
Today’s Disciple’s Path Lectio Divina reading is Mark 1:16-20.
As Jesus walked beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.”
At once they left their nets and followed him. When he had gone a little farther, he saw James son of Zebedee and his brother John in a boat, preparing their nets. Without delay he called them, and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired men and followed him. (Mark 1:16-20, NIV)
Which word or phrase do you feel led to reflect on today? Please share in the comment section below!Print This Post
