The Living Tableau- Meditation

Joshua 1:8 (NIV)
8 Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.

Pastor's Notes

Meditation is being quiet and giving one’s undivided attention to the things of God. It requires slowing down and removing the barriers that may distract us. It may incorporate a long look at God and/or God’s creation. Adele A. Calhoun expresses that Christian meditation opens us to the mind of God and to His world and to His presence in the world. We must let go of all distractions so that we can focus on God, be in God’s presence. Meditation is a method by which we train our minds to concentrate on something and shut everything else out. Meditation is simply putting our body, mind and spirit in the same place at the same time and treasure the results. Let’s strive to keep our minds stayed on Christ and the things of Christ.
