"If the Son therefore shall make you free, you shall be free indeed" (John 8:36).

"My meditation of him shall be sweet" (Ps. 104:34).

Meditation on the written word leads us to meditation on the Living Word, Jesus Christ. God, in speaking of His Son, said, "This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased" (Matt. 3:17).

He is the object of our meditation. Only as we come into His presence, shutting out all other distractions and quietly consider Him, will we know real meditation.

When we occupy our thoughts with Him, through the Word we can begin to fathom who He really is. "Christ is the exact likeness of the unseen God. He existed before God made anything at all" (Col. 1:15). "In him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily" (Col. 2:9).

As we meditate on Him, we contemplate who He is and why He came to earth. We reflect on what He did for us. There are rich dividends in meditating on Him----such meditation will be sweet. Could anything compare with it? How real His personal love for us is! As we meditate on Him, we are released from pressure and tension, and our hearts are filled with peace and trust.

Meditation on Him shall be sweet, for He is our priceless possession. "But whatever was my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ.What is more, I consider everthing a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord" (Phil. 3:7-8). Such meditation leads us to worship Him.

What is the meditation of Jesus Christ for each of us personally? "MY meditation of Him shall be sweet." Take some time to meditate today and make Jesus the object of your meditation.

Have a great start to your week....Love mark Phil. 4:11
