First, read John 12:25-26

John 12:25-26 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

Those who love their life lose it, and those who hate their life in this world will keep it for eternal life. Whoever serves me must follow me, and where I am, there will my servant be also. Whoever serves me, the Father will honor.

Take a few minutes to read and re-read the passage above. Read it at least 5-6 times. Try reading it aloud, and to yourself. Read it at different paces, with different inflections.

Close your eyes, breathe deep. What words in this passage stood out to you today? Which phrases caught your attention?

Say those words or phrases a few more times, with a deep breath in between each time. What do you hear God saying to you?
