Music, Meditation and The Word
from the series A Call To Prayer
Christian meditation is not about emptying our minds, but about filling them with one thought.
As you read the scriptures, choose one of the verses, or part of a verse, to concentrate on.
Focus on this for 3 minutes, asking God to speak to you.
Set a timer, and then you won't be thinking about the time!
You can use the photo to reflect upon.
It is common to find it difficult to concentrate or to focus on one thing.
If you are new to this, don't worry. It just takes practice.
You might need to turn your phone off.
Then listen to the accompanying music.
I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener.
Remain in me, as I also remain in you.
No branch can bear fruit by itself; It must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.
Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.
John 15 v 1, 4
This beautiful hymn was written by a minister who was so ill that he was dying. You can read more about him in the article, Abide in me.
Also in the article Abide in me, we look at 7 Christians who bore much fruit in their lives, and who even changed the world, because they drew their strength and inspiration from Christ Jesus.
