Bible Term: Meditation

Meditation is simply the act of reflecting or contemplating something.

For followers of Jesus, meditation can refer to carefully considering a Bible verse or passage, the listening part of prayer, thankfully considering all God has done, or taking time to appreciate the creation he made.

In today’s fast-paced, activity-filled life, the practice of meditation is a lost art for many or an impossible task for others. Yet, God wants us to do just that. Psalms 46:10 says, “Be still and know that I am God.”

Meditation is one of several spiritual disciplines.

Bible Term: Mediator

A mediator is one who intervenes between two others in a dispute for the purpose of reconciling their differences.

Specifically, Jesus acts as our mediator with God the Father, by paying for the penalty of our wrong doing (that is, sin), thereby reconciling us to God.

His role of mediator continues with his ongoing intercession for his followers (1 John 2:1 and Hebrews 7:25).
