40 days of Grace

In the church I am a part of we are encouraging as many people as possible to read a short part of Mark's gospel each day in the weeks leading up to Easter. We then suggest asking two questions as an aid to prayer:-

1.   How can I love and praise God for this? What do I see here that I can praise him for?
2.   How does this show me what I should or can be and do? How would my life be different if this truth were powerfully real to me?

As Jesus was coming up out of the water, he saw heaven being torn open and the Spirit descending on him like a dove. 
II    I'm not sure  I had reflected on the heavens being 'torn open' before. God who is a trinity of persons-as it were broken open for me. A rather big thought for me to have taken through the day. May I be willing to be 'broken' for his sake in whatever life holds for me.
