Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

September 16, 2010 (prayerfully meditate)

prayerfully meditate

“The challenge before us then
is not merely to do
what God says because He is God,
but to desire what God says
because He is good.
The challenge is not merely to pursue righteousness,
but to prefer righteousness.
The challenge is to get up in the morning
and prayerfully meditate on the Scriptures
until we experience joy and peace in believing
“the precious and very great promises” of God
(Rom. 15:13; 2 Peter 1:4).
With this joy set before us
the commandments of God
will not be burdensome (1 John 5:3)
and the compensation of sin
will appear too brief
and too shallow to lure us.”
- John Piper
