Spiritual Reading

中文: Chinese Version

One of many ways of hearing God speak through Scripture is Lectio (“Lexio”) Divina, Latin for “Spiritual Reading.”

Many of you may be familiar with this ancient practice used by Christians for many centuries. It’s not complicated:

1. Choose a short section of Scripture. Ask God to speak whatever he wants to you.

2. Read it slowly and thoughtfully. Read it a second time (or third if wanted).

3. Notice any words or phrases which “jump out” at you. Meditate on these for some minutes.
