When faced with the harshness of this world, and injustice, death, destruction and despair surround us, we are easily moved to set our minds on the flesh. We say, “Prayers are worthless. I don’t need prayers. I need justice. I need action.” And we begin to blame God, blame people. Hatred and anger fill our hearts. How do we respond then? It is only by the help of the Holy Spirit You will see that no matter what injustice, no matter what extent of loss, no matter the amount of pain and suffering, no matter what has taken hold of your heart today Jesus went through even more for you and said, “Forgive them for they do not know what they do.”
We live in an age where the lack of meditation has crippled the Christian life. So many truths of the Bible are overly simplified and spoon-fed to us. And in an age of social media, we rely too much on the short inspirational quotes and the opinion and experience of others to guide our own thoughts and decisions in life. And even though their revelation and truth is founded in Scripture, because many people live off of the experience and faith of others, when the trials of life become too hard to bear, our faith is not enough to sustain us or help us get through them. What does it mean to meditate as a Christian? That's what we talked about this week on Fresh Mornings!
