Daily Office Project
The Daily Office Project is a devotional adventure. It represents a corporate attempt to insert serious spiritual ritual and discipline into seriously busy American lives. There is a morning exercise and an evening exercise for each day. The best way to participate is to do work with the morning exercise at the very start of your day and to do work with the end of day exercise right before bed.
Along with this, most participants are receiving texts at noon and at 5 PM each day. The texts and the exercises are built around a unified theme. In this way, we are trying to establish a spiritual rhythm that encompasses all of each day.
“Make every effort to add to your faith goodness ...”
2 Peter 1:5
“His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness.”
2 Peter 1:3
Good morning and welcome to Day Three. This exercise will end the week for us. The main purpose of yesterday’s and today’s exercise is to help us get used to the rhythm of the project.
It is somewhat unusual for me to have an experience that I would describe as “God speaking to me.” I know some of you have that experience often, but it has been rare for me. I don’t know if that is because I have a high standard for that kind of language or if my relationship skills are spotty or if my faith is limited ... or all of the above.
That’s just how it has been for me.
“Continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling.”
“Grace is not opposed to effort; it is opposed to earning.”
Good morning! Welcome to Day Two.
We will start our material next week at the very beginning spiritually. We will try not to assume anything. You don’t have to be convinced already to participate in this project. You just have to be ready and willing to “seek” and to “knock” as Jesus said. So, we will start next week by investigating doubt; then we will move to looking at clues for God’s existence. I pray that this will provide easy access for those of us who are still searching out the faith. I also pray this will be a great and encouraging refresher for those of us who are Christ-followers already. But in preparation, let’s spend the next couple of days trying to establish the rhythm that we will be working with over the next few months.
So we’re at the end of Day One. How were the texts? Did they motivate moments of reflection for you? Were you able to capitalize in any way on the verse you rehearsed this morning? Did you feel like your eyes were open today? This part of our work together will be most beneficial if you do it at the very end of your day. I’m hoping that you will be able to do these “End of Day” exercises right before you go to sleep.
“My eyes stay open through the watches of the day, that I may meditate on your promises.”
“You have created us for Yourself, and our heart is not quiet until it rests in You.”
