The Word is Alive
Updated: Feb 8
“Now is my soul troubled? And what shall I say? ‘Father, save me from this hour’? But for this purpose, I have come to this hour. Father, glorify your name.” Then a voice came from heaven: “I have glorified it, and I will glorify it again.” The crowd that stood there and heard it said that it had thundered. Others said, “An angel has spoken to him.” Jesus answered, “This voice has come for your sake, not mine. Now is the judgment of this world; now will the ruler of this world be cast out. And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself.”
John 12:27-32 ESV
Read the verses slowly and listen for a word or phrase that stands out to you.
Read the verses through, asking the Lord what He is speaking through the word or phrase that stood out to you in the first reading.
Read the verses again, contemplating how the word or phrase may be speaking about a current personal situation.
Read and rest in the passage and let it deposit into your heart.
