In part 3 of his series on the seven commands of Christ, Pastor John talks about meditation. One illustration of the importance of meditating on God’s Word starts in Luke 11:24 with the parable about the demon that is expelled from someone but makes things even worse when it returns and finds an empty soul. Meditating on the word fills the vacant space. Another illustration is in Matthew 4 where Jesus goes into the wilderness to fast and be tempted. In each situation Jesus overcomes, not because he can recite scripture but because it’s a part of who he is. Meditation does that.[easy_media_download text=”Listen or Download” width=180 url=”http://ncccnj.com/wp-content/uploads/180128-Seven-commands-of-Christ-3.mp3″]
