How to Meditate on God’s Word

How to Meditate on God’s Word By Don Krow

The meditate means “to muse over, ponder, to plan in the mind, to purpose, word or intend.” The Greek word implies “to revolve something in the mind” and is also translated to imagine.  Two reasons for biblical mediation are “to ponder over correct knowledge, also referred to as renewing the mind and to contact God behind His Word” through prayer, praise, and mediation; i.e., musing, pondering, and thinking about Him.  

Example: baptism. Define the word from Greek, Hebrew, or a good dictionary. Find the root word from which it is derived. Consider and ponder over the context of verses that will lead you to study other related subjects, such as remission (Acts 2:38), repentance (Acts 2:38), faith (Mark 16:16), the conscience (1 Pet. 3:21), calling on the Lord (Acts 22:16), etc. To read the full lesson text click here.
