How much can you sacrifice in preparation for eternity with Christ? Are you willing to give away money and possession? What about control of your life? When He calls, we must be prepared to follow without question. Prepare yourself for life with Him now.
Lectio Divina, Latin for divine reading, is the ancient Christian practice of communicating with God through the reading and study of Scripture. This Bible study builds on this practice, introducing modern readers of the Bible to the time-honored tradition of "listening for God" through His Word incorporating silence, reading, meditation and prayer.
Lectio Divina, Latin for divine reading, is a series of Bible studies that calls Christians to slow down, read Scripture, meditate on it, and prayerfully respond as they "listen to God" through His Word. The gospel of Mark was written while there were still living eye witnesses to the life and ministry of Jesus who could corroborate the amazing events. Mark relates rapid action and uses minimal dialogue to chronicle the deeds of the servant-leader Jesus Christ. The writing isn't flowery, and it doesn't meander. The key to understanding the picture of Jesus shown in Mark's gospel may be found in Jesus' own declaration, "For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many." (Mark 10:45)
