Should Christians Meditiate?
"Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things" (Philippians 4:8, NASB).
What is Christian meditation?
Christian meditation is sometimes confused with the type of meditation practiced by some eastern religions. Those forms of meditation encourage one to focus inwardly and empty the mind of extraneous thoughts in an effort to gain spiritual insight. Christian meditation encourages one to gain an understanding of God by reflecting on and contemplating His Word and His gifts to us.
Who should meditate?
Every Christian should meditate. Numerous verses throughout the Bible mention meditation, reinforcing the central role it should play in your walk with God. But meditation takes time and focus, plus there is a learning curve. That is why it is helpful to have a central place, like this page, for resources and exercises to support you as you develop your meditation practice.
Why should we meditate?
God has provided many ways for His children to communicate with Him: meditation is one of those ways. Christians who choose to commune with God in this manner often find a deeper, more restful relationship in Him. In addition, their concentration and effort may be blessed by profound insights that might have otherwise eluded them.
Where is Your Meditation Room?
