Should Christians Meditate?
Hurry is not of the Devil, it is the Devil.
Ephesians 3:14-19 NIV
For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
“The reason we come away so cold from reading the word is because we don’t warm ourselves at the fires of meditation.” -Thomas Watson
