ENGAGEMENT QUESTIONS Lord, we love You. Open our ears to hear You as You speak to us and open our hearts to receive Your love. Fill us to overflowing with Your perfect love and all of the fruits of Your Spirit. We desire a closer relationship with You. Draw near to us, precious God, as we draw near to You. In Jesus’ precious name we pray, Amen. Come near to God and he will come near to you James 4:8 Read Mark 1:29-38 Describe Jesus’ day prior to His “early morning.” What did Jesus do early the next morning? Currently, do you have a set-apart time during the day that you spend time with God? If so, describe it. If not, why? Reread Mark 1:36-37Jesus was interrupted. What did Simon want Jesus to do? Read Psalm 62:1-2.What is another way we are benefited from spending time with God? Take a few moments to meditate on our study today. Were there particular Scriptures or statements that spoke to you personally? Closing Prayer: Precious God, we praise Your mighty name. You are the Creator of the Universe, the King of kings and the Lord of lords. Thank You God for teaching us about You and for making a way for us to have a close, personal and intimate relationship with You. We love You, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
