Lent with Bonhoeffer: We Meditate Because We are Christians


Tuesday, March 13, 2018

We meditate because we are Christians. Therefore, every day in which we do not penetrate more deeply into the knowledge of God’s Word in Holy Scripture is a lost day for us. We can only move forward with certainty upon the firm ground of the Word of God. And, as a Christian, we learn to know the Holy Scripture in no other way than by hearing the word preached and by prayerful meditation.

-from Meditating on the Word, pg. 22
