3.10.19 New Life Exercise

Our Spiritual Exercise/Practice from This Week’s Teaching in Mark 11:12-25

The chief priests and scribes had made the temple about a whole lot of things other than loving God and seeking His presence. Now that our very lives and bodies, as Jesus’s follower’s, are His temple*, we want to purposefully take time to practice the opposite of what the chief priests and scribes were doing.

  • Set aside 10 minutes of silence and solitude.

  • Breathe, and in prayer, simply sit with God, loving Him.

  • Don’t go into it with any agenda, requests, or wishes. Don’t ask for anything—even good things. Simply give 10 minutes to doing nothing but loving God for His own sake, and receiving His love for you.
