We African Christians in general love the Bible. We love to own a Bible. We enjoy listening to preaching based on the Bible. We love to read tracts and booklets about the Bible. Sometimes we check out the Bible to pray a certain psalm or read a few verses that have been indicated to us in the course of a lesson, homily, or discussion. But few of us ever read the Bible on a regular basis as a Christian devotion. Why?" So asks Nigerian-born priest Ernest Munachi Ezeogu.
Rev. Munachi's question is worth posing to Christians, not just in Africa, but around the world. Why don't believers spend more time engaging their minds in meditation on God's Word?
Bible scholar Matthew Henry said it's through meditation on God's Word that we are most profoundly comforted in affliction and enriched in our souls. "It may be truly said of our Lord Jesus Christ," Henry wrote, "that His words are words of goodness and grace."
Today, reflect on the following verses that reiterate the riches to be found as you dive into the depths of God's Word:
"Study this Book of instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do" (Joshua 1:8).
"O God, we meditate on Your unfailing love as we worship in Your Temple" (Psalm 48:9).
"Even princes sit and speak against me, but I will meditate on Your decrees" (Psalm 119:23).
"I honor and love Your commands. I meditate on Your decrees" (Psalm 119:48).
"I meditate on Your age-old regulations; O Lord, they comfort me" (Psalm 119:52).
"Sustain me, and I will be rescued; then I will meditate continually on Your decrees" (Psalm 119:117).
