The early Methodists were “methodical” in their study of scripture. The more they learned of God’s word, the more inspired they were to bring “scriptural holiness” into their world. As you read this week’s scriptures, consider how you are called to serve on Christ’s behalf. You may wish to engage yourself and your loved ones in these standard questions:
Psalm Reading: Based on his prayers, what would you guess was going on in David’s life at that moment? What is going on in your life or family today? How does the psalm connect to your experience and your prayers today?
New Testament Reading: What was Jesus saying or doing in this passage? How did his message or actions impact those who witnessed or heard him? How does Jesus’ message or actions impact your life today?
