Great Sermon! Very short presentation but interesting- we often get hung up about the thought of meditation but really meditating upon a god given idea/ doctrine is very helpful. Worth a listen !

Great Sermon! Absolutely right. May God incline my heart with such a desire.
Set your affection on things above not on things on the earth.

Great Sermon! Thank you.
Really helpful I really appreciate this, especially what he says about occasional meditation. That is something I do but have never heard a preacher describe. This is a relief to me. Last year, I was very sick and almost died. I was diagnosed with cancer just before easter. Just a few hours before I was diagnosed, I was at work and someone had given me an easter themed button that showed 3 crosses shilhouetted on golgotha. I started thinking about Jesus's death on the cross and about how he told the criminal who believed in Him that he would be with Him in paradise. These contemplations brought me great peace despite the chaos of my physical health. Well, I mentioned this a week later to friends from church and one of the ladies said what I did was idolatry and rebuked me. All that to say, I am relieved that other Christians such as this preacher do not think it is idolatry to be reminded of God by everyday things and meditate on the truths which we are reminded of.
