Bring It On-Line: Meditation - July 21, 2016

Can Christians use meditation to focus on Jesus? Read Transcript

We're going to take some time to answer this viewer

question today.

This person says, can Christians use meditation

to focus more on Jesus?

Is it biblical?

Did Jesus meditate?

I want to use it to draw closer to God.

I'd also like it to improve my health.

Should Christians stay away from it?

There's no recorded instance in the Bible

where Jesus meditated.

He would spend all night in prayer.

And there's also, the Bible encourage

us to meditate on the word.

Now, who is the word?

That's Jesus.

So it's been a long Christian practice

to have what's called the prayer of meditation,

the Jesus Prayer.

Lord, Jesus Christ, son of God, have mercy on me a sinner.

I like to meditate on the word and enables

it to become part of me.

We leave you with these words from James 5,

"The prayer of faith will save the sick,

and the Lord will raise them up."
