Meditation is the activity of calling in mind, and thinking over, and dwelling on, and putting into practice for oneself; the various things that one knows about the works and ways, and purposes and promises of God. We are going to learn to-day that any time, God revealed himself to us through meditation: It is a ” Victory over sin “. Jesus said:
” Healthy people don’t need a doctor – sick people do. I have come to call not those who think they are righteous, but those who know they are sinners – Mark 2: 17 “.
In other words, the ” Emmanuel ” we welcome in our hearts at Christmas were meaningful for those acknowledge they were “ sinners ” – Consequence: short of the Glory of God ( Romans 3: 23 ). The metaphor here is that the sinners are sick people – Their disease is that they live without or out of Christ: the word made flesh – Their medicine is God’ word in their heart – Where is the pharmacy ( or the chemist shop ) The Bible: Through slow and continuous reading; study & meditation. Then the revelation which is “ dosage and administration ” to cure the disease called sin. This awareness of this process is already our ” victory over sin “. Because we acknowledge Jesus as our ” physician ” who forgive; healed and rescue us from the power of sin.
But what is Jesus panacea or tool, or medicine? HIS WORD!
Let us recall the confession of Hosea 4: 6
“ My people are being destroyed because they don’t know me…”
Those who are rejecting the gift of Salvation as at now, are doing this out of IGNORANCE. This is purpose of sin; preventing God’s creation to enjoy Divine mercy, and come back into God’s family as beloved children through Jesus Christ: our co-joint brother. So God’s word ; who is God’s tool through which ignorance is expelled and filled with God’s knowledge: the same, put off darkness and enlighten our entire being ( spirit, soul & body ); the same word, put and end to errance and release sure direction to easily and joyfully embrace our destiny. Let us however, rehearsed the power of God’s word as our spiritual warfare weapon against sin, and celebrate our victory, our freedom over wrong. Hebrews 4: 12
” ...He is alive and powerful, He is sharper than two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow, He exposes our innermost thought and desires. “
Meditation is only perpetuating the building of Jesus Christ nature in us as Christian ( little Christ ). Furthermore, we are equipped to spray His eternal and almighty Kingdom for the Salvation of mankind.
