Guided Scripture reading has been powerful for me because it helps me engage with the story in a deeper way. It’s often combined with a practice called imaginative prayer, where you use all of your senses and imagination to enter into the story itself. What sounds do you hear? What does it smell like? Who is around you? And then God uses these details and stories to speak to you right where you are.
I’ll be honest: it might feel a little strange at first. We’ve been taught to use our reasoning and knowledge when we read the Bible, not our imaginations.
But, you see, God has given us a mind to both reason and imagine, and when we use that reasoning and imagination with God’s guidance, He will empower us to engage more deeply with His Word… and ultimately, engage more meaningfully with Him.
Join me as we enter into the story of choosing an apostle to replace Judas.
