Gospel reading reflections are a great way to dive deeper into the passages of scripture we read every day. These reflections can provide thoughtful insight into each day’s devotions and give us a better understanding of our faith journey.
But how exactly do you go about reflecting on a gospel reading? That’s what we’re here to answer today.
A good place to start is by getting familiar with the passage you are reflecting on. Read it several times, making sure to take in all the details and think about what each part of the passage could mean for you. Once you have done this, ask yourself some questions like: What does this passage tell me about God? How does this passage relate to my own life? Or, what message is God trying to get across in this passage? Make sure that as you ponder these questions, your heart is open and honest so that God can speak His truth into your life through his Word.
It can also be beneficial to look at reliable commentaries or interpretations from respected church leaders who have delved deep into the Bible’s teachings. This can give you additional perspective on topics that may have been difficult for you to interpret alone and help point out spiritual truths in the text which might otherwise have been overlooked.
Finally, take time at the end of your reflection period to write down any insights or revelations which struck a chord with you during your time in prayer. You can then use these notes as a reference for future gospel readings or even just as a reminder of how powerful God’s revelation can be when we take time to reflect on it properly.
Here are three questions to consider when reflecting on a gospel reading:
- What does this passage tell me about God?
- How does this passage relate to my own life?
- What message is God trying to get across in this passage?
