Day 34 - Forming in Faithfulness
Focusing again on faithfulness, we remember that faithfulness is found in devotion and found in promises kept. The faithfulness of God to us is devoted and His promises are good and true. He is perfectly faithful. We practice our faithfulness, too, when we are mindful of whom is worthy to receive our devotion. Where do we place our faith?
The spiritual practice for today is called visio divina – a time of prayer allowing our hearts and minds and imagination to be moved as we reflect on an image, and see what the Holy Spirit might reveal to us. Below is an image of a lamb followed by a few scripture references about the lamb. Spend some time in quiet reflection about the symbolic significance of a single lamb.
“Now go, and remember that I am sending you out as lambs among wolves.”
Luke 10: 3
“If a man has a hundred sheep and one of them wanders away, what will he do? Won’t he leave the ninety-nine others on the hills and go out to search for the one that is lost?”
Matthew 18: 12
“The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!”
“After breakfast Jesus asked Simon Peter, ‘Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?’ ‘Yes, Lord,’ Peter replied, ‘you know I love you.’ ‘Then feed my lambs,’ Jesus told him.”
John 21: 15
“After this I saw a vast crowd, too great to count, from every nation and tribe and people and language, standing in front of the throne and before the Lamb. They were clothed in white robes and held palm branches in their hands.”
Revelation 7: 9
