How ON EARTH Can I Live The Christian Life?
Part 40 – Assignment Three: Beholding And Listening
- Get alone, and sit quietly before the Lord.
- Love the Lord, and be loved by Him.
- Open up to each passage, but do not speak … simply listen.
Listen to the Son speak, but not to you, but to the Father. And listen to the Father speak, but not to you, but to the Son.
- Example: Psalm 23
verse 1: “Father, while I was on earth, I testified before men and angels that You shepherded Me. I witnessed to men and angels that I never had any need. And that You were always with Me.
verse 2: “My Son, while You were an earth I led You. You followed Me and glorified My name. I was Your drink. I was Your rest, and even now, here in the eternals, I am Your drink and Your rest.
- Repeat this exercise with your other 3 passages.
