Theme: THE ESSENCE OF WORSHIP
Text: “Stand in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still.” – Psalm 4:4.
Comment: Spiritual meditation is very important in the life of a Christian. Prayers, reading of the Scriptures coupled with spiritual meditations prepare the heart for a daily life of holiness in the Lord which bring one God’s blessings and eventual salvation in the end by God’s grace and power. When some people go to bed, they weary themselves with worries about imaginary threats or fears. And with plots of how to eliminate such threats, even if that involves violence, deceit or treachery. “Woe to them that devise iniquity, and work evil upon their beds! when the morning is light, they practise it, because it is in the power of their hand.” (Micah 2:1) But the communing a Christian does on his bed involves weighing his thoughts and actions on the scale of the Holy Bible in order to promote the cause of righteousness Joshua, the servant of God stated: “This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.” – Joshua 1:8.
