In His Law Doth He Meditate

Paul exhorted the believers in Philippi, "whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things” (4:8). Paul said “think on”—give careful consideration, ponder, dwell on—“these things.”

A parallel term to this command is the word meditate. To meditate is to muse, to ponder, to mull over. Meditating on God’s Word is chewing on it, savoring it, and extracting principles and applications from it. Psalm 1:2 says that the blessed man meditates on the Word of God day and night.

The Puritan Thomas Watson (1620-1686) said that meditation is the serious and solemn thinking about God. When we think about God and His Word beyond the initial hearing of it, we glean greater understanding of a text, we make connections to other passages of Scripture, and we understand better how to apply the text to our lives.

Take the main idea from a sermon or a thought within a sermon and think about it during the week. By doing this, you will grow in your Christian life.
