Week 6, Day 5: Run the Race

         Contrary to the beliefs of some Eastern and mystical religions, Christian meditation is not an emptying of oneself. To the contrary: Christian meditation is a filling; a quiet time of reflection in which you become filled with God. Affected by work of the Holy Spirit, having had the way open to God by Jesus Christ, meditation puts us in the position and mindset to truly commune with God. As we silently ponder His word, we allow the Holy Spirit to usher us into His presence and glimpse His purposes for us.

         This weekend, meditate over the ideas of God’s Law and God’s grace. Go back to this week’s Scripture passages and delve into the context of each one. Be sure to stop and meditate over each new insight. Use a good study Bible and look up cross references (other verses or passages of Scripture relating to the same subject). Meditate on those as well. You may want to capture your thoughts and revelations in a journal.
