Lectio Divina – 2 Timothy

July 30th, 2010, Promulgated by Gen

I thought that this would be a gentle, prayerful way to begin your weekend. A little bit of Lectio Divina in the morning is always a good thing.

I charge you, before God and Jesus Christ, who shall judge the living and the dead, by his coming and his kingdom: 2 Preach the word: be instant in season, out of season: reprove, entreat, rebuke in all patience and doctrine. 3 For there shall be a time when they will not endure sound doctrine but, according to their own desires, they will heap to themselves teachers having itching ears: 4 And will indeed turn away their hearing from the truth, but will be turned unto fables. 5 But be vigilant, labour in all things, do the work of an evangelist, fulfil your ministry. Be sober. 6 For I am even now ready to be sacrificed: and the time of my dissolution is at hand. 7 I have fought a good fight: I have finished my course: I have kept the faith. 8 As to the rest, there is laid up for me a crown of justice which the Lord the just judge will render to me in that day: and not only to me, but to them also that love his coming. Make haste to come to me quickly. 16 At my first answer, no man stood with me: but all forsook me. May it not be laid to their charge! 17 But the Lord stood by me and strengthened me, that by me the preaching may be accomplished and that all the Gentiles may hear. And I was delivered out of the mouth of the lion. 18 The Lord has delivered me from every evil work and will preserve me unto his heavenly kingdom. To whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

    Dealing with a similar theme.
    That makes me happy.

    Awesome post, and not just for the picture.

    And I got the picture from another blog which featured a piece along the same lines – looks like we’re all on the same subliminal page.
