Meditation and the Bible

What is Christian meditation? It is obedient reflection on God's Word. "Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful." Joshua 1:8, NIV.

Christian meditation is persistently focusing on how to follow God's plan. "But they delight in doing everything God wants them to, and day and night are always meditating on His laws and thinking about ways to follow Him more closely." Psalm 1:2, TLB.

Jesus gave us an example of Christian meditation and prayer. "But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed." Luke 5:16, NIV.

Meditation results in insight. "Reflect on what I am saying, for the Lord will give you insight into all this." II Timothy 2:7, NIV.5

Christian View of Meditation

Christian traditions have various practices which can be identified as forms of "meditation." Practices such as the rosary, the Adoration (focusing on the eucharist) in Catholicism or the hesychast tradition in Eastern Orthodoxy, may be compared to forms of Eastern meditation that focus on an individual object. Christian meditation is considered a form of prayer. Hesychastic practice may involve recitation of the Jesus Prayer, thus "through the grace of God and one's own effort, to concentrate the nous in the heart." Prayer as a form of meditation of the heart is described in the Philokalia—a practice that leads towards Theosis which ignores the senses and results in inner stillness.

The Old Testament book of Joshua sets out a form of meditation based on scriptures: "Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it, then you will be prosperous and successful" (Joshua 1:8). This is one of the reasons why bible verse memorization is a practice among many evangelical Christians.8
