Sacred Reading

16 Every Scripture is God-breathed and[a] profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for instruction in righteousness, 2 Timothy”3:16

Lectio Divina means sacred reading. It is a reflection of how we meditate on God’s word as we saturate ourselves in his presence. It is an invitation for the Holy Spirit to work in us and to transform us. Christian meditation has been around much longer then most people realize we only need to look to the Bible to see many shining examples. Jesus continually spent time alone with God and was quick to use scripture in his teachings and application. To memorize scripture is admirable but to live it out through listening to our Father in heaven and hearing his will for us is divine and life changing.

As we read a Bible Scripture we can:

  • Read
  • Reflect
  • Respond
  • Rest

We can read a verse, reflect on what the passage means to us, decide what God may be inviting you to do, and finally rest in his presence and let him guide you. We are renewed, refreshed and revitalized. Union with the Father in Christ is our life force here on earth and for eternity in heaven. Pray without ceasing.

26 In the same way, the Spirit also helps our weaknesses, for we don’t know how to pray as we ought. But the Spirit himself makes intercession for us with groanings which can’t be uttered. Romans 8:26
