Manna For Today: Thursday, June 2, 2016
Mark 8:34-38 – Then He called the crowd to Him along with his disciples and said: “Whoever wants to be My disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow Me. 35 For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for Me and for the gospel will save it. 36 What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? 37 Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul? 38 If anyone is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will be ashamed of them when He comes in His Father’s glory with the holy angels.”
Excerpt from “40 Days in the Word” by Rick Warren:
THE “PROBE IT” METHOD OF BIBLE MEDITATION
Using the acrostic S.P.A.C.E.P.E.T.S
S – Is there a SIN to confess?
P – Is there a PROMISE to claim?
A – Is there an ATTITUDE to change?
C – Is there a COMMAND to obey?
E – Is there an EXAMPLE to follow?
P – Is there a PRAYER to pray?
E – Is there an ERROR to avoid?
T – Is there a TRUTH to believe?
S – Is there SOMETHING to praise God for?
As you meditate on the scripture above, use the acrostic S.P.A.C.E.P.E.T.S and ask these questions. Take time to write down your thoughts to the ones that speak the most to you.
Peace and blessings!
