The Meditations of my Heart

I ran across a quote from an old puritan preacher (Thomas Manton). He said, “What is the reason there is so much preaching and so little practice?” His answer was thought provoking. He said, “For want of meditation.”

Now, no honest Christian will deny that we have unlimited access to preaching via the internet, radio and other forms of media. But I believe we have to admit that there is a breakdown between the hearing the Word of God and the practice of it in daily living. People mark their Bibles, fill their notebooks, and file away their precious quotes; but somehow the power of the Word never gets into the decisions and activities of daily life.

I believe a main reason the Word of God doesn’t move from hearing to doing is because we don’t take time to meditate on what we have learned. The truth gets into our notebooks but not into our hearts. What digestion is to the body, meditation is to the soul. If you ate food but never digested it…you would die.

I wonder if some of our Bible-study activities are not like what goes on in a fast-food restaurant. We go to the meeting; listen to the teacher or preacher; and then we rush off to something else. We do not take time to think, ponder, question, reflect, relate or apply. The sad result is a great gap between learning and living.

Whether we like it or not it takes time to be holy. Too many of us are caught up in the Christian rat race. We simply do not take time to digest the Word of God. We are proud of our attendance at church, but in reality we are not growing as believers due to our lack of ingesting the Word of God. Are we cultivating a fast-food faith? Should we be taking time in our services to “be still” and meditate on the truths we have both sung and heard?

I wonder if we may be cramming to much into our church programs and into our worship service. Are we giving people time to mediate? Do we really need ten minutes of announcements and not spend even five minutes in quite contemplation of what we have heard?

There is a subtle danger in cramming ourselves full of Bible knowledge that never really gets into our inner person. We start equating knowledge with spirituality, and activity with ministry; and then we start living on substitutes. Knowing Bible facts is not the same as receiving Bible truths and making them a vital part of our inner life.

What would happen to our practical Christian walk if we spent a longer period in quiet meditation after the preaching? Or if we drove home from church in quiet meditation instead of listening to the car radio? Or if we spent a few minutes at home alone with the Lord instead of immediately turning on the television?

Radical? Perhaps; but the malady is so serious that we need radical measures! The blessed man in Psalm 1 took the Bible seriously and meditated on its truths day and night. “This Book of the Law shall not depart out of thy mouth,” the Lord said to Joshua, “but thou shalt meditate therein day and night (for what purpose?), that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein:” (Josh. 1:8)

The bridge between learning and living is meditating – praying over the Word, pondering it, applying it to our lives.

Four reasons to take part in the Christmas offering


“…remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said,
It is more blessed to give than to receive.”

This Wednesday is my wife’s birthday and if you are anything like me, gift giving can be a stressful, anxiety-inducing event. There are so many expectations! Such a desire to give something that will be loved and appreciated, and I feel a great deal of pressure to make sure that I select the right gift to give her. Most of us understand what it is like to agonize over gift giving. We want our gift to communicate what we feel and how we appreciate the person to whom we are giving. A gift expresses worth, love, gratitude, respect, honor and giving a gift can convey those thoughts in a tangible way. During the Christmas season especially, people are busy seeking the right gifts to give to the wonderful people in their lives. But often times as we make our list of who to give to, we pass right over the most deserving one of all. Our God.

Each year as a church we are provided with an opportunity to express our gratitude to our God and assign worth to our Savior by giving back to Him through our Christmas offering. Here are four reasons that every member of Bible Baptist Church should take part in this occasion.

Giving allows us to become more like the God we serve

John 3:16 states “God so loved the world that he gave”. James 1:17 reveals that “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights”. While I live in this sin cursed world there are many ways I can never be like God. I am not all-knowing. I am not all-powerful. I am not immutable. I still battle sin. I do not love perfectly. I am biased, selfish and in so many ways utterly unlike my God. But I can give; and when I do, I emulate one of his most astounding attributes. He is the ultimate giver. He gave me life, hope, forgiveness, grace, acceptance, love, joy, peace and so much more. When I give I am following the pattern that God set for me.

Do you desire to be like God? Use this Christmas offering as a way to follow the pattern that God left for us by giving sacrificially.

Giving reveals what we truly value

Jesus said in Matthew 6:21 “where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” This is a sobering thought for me when I look at my finances and see how much I spend on self, compared to how little I give to God. This is not a call to live in poverty and sell everything we own to give to the church, but it is a challenge to evaluate our finances in the light of the truth of God’s Word.

What does your “treasure” reveal about your value system? Where are you spending and investing your time and money? Self? Family? Work? Pleasure? Future security?

On December 21st, determine to assign value to the most worthy one of all.

Giving demonstrates faith in God’s provision

Philippians 4:19 is a verse that all Christians love to quote. “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” We love the thought that God has promised to take care of every need we have. There is a word in the previous verse however, that we may not like as much. Paul says that he has received from Epaphroditus “the things which were sent… an odor of a sweet smell, a sacrifice.” For the believers in Philippi God’s supply came on the other side of their sacrifice, and I submit to you that the same is true for us. Faith in God’s provision will be manifested in our willingness to sacrifice for Him. God’s promise to supply the need was given to a group of people who were giving sacrificially.

This passage echoes the principle found in Malachi 3 as God challenges the people “Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.”

God’s supply is always preceded by our sacrifice.

Giving recognizes that we are stewards not owners of our possessions

There is nothing that we have that has not been given to us. I Corinthians 4:7 says “what hast thou that thou didst not receive?” I Timothy reminds us that we brought nothing into the world and we will take nothing out. While we live on this earth we are simply managers of what God has entrusted to us. As such, we are to be conduits for giving not reservoirs for keeping. When we decide to hold back from giving to God we make a dangerous declaration that we believe we have the right to determine what to do with something that is not ours.

Do you struggle giving to the Lord? Maybe it is time to realize that nothing you have is yours to begin with. When we give we acknowledge the truth that we are stewards not owners.

Before I sat down to right this article I thought about giving stats on how many people attend each Sunday morning and how much money each person would have to give in order for us to pay off the property. I considered breaking down our loan balance and showing how we could save money in a few simple steps by cutting our stocking budget in half or giving up coffee for a month and be able to reach our goal. But I think that misses the point of Biblical giving. It is not about a goal or a numerical amount. It is about our hearts. It is about Christians taking the chance to give back to the God who has given us so much. It is about our church coming together to invest in eternity. It is about individuals who want to prove that they value God and His work.

Two weeks from today is our Christmas offering. I urge you to consider taking part in this opportunity to worship God, the greatest gift giver of all.

In Christ,
