The Meditation of Christ

How to meditate according to the life and teachings of Christ?

There are three powerful aspects of meditation to learn from our Lord Jesus Christ.

1) Voluntary solitude, a state or situation in which you are alone usually because you want to be.

And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone. Matthew 14:23

While he thus spake, there came a cloud, and overshadowed them: and they feared as they entered into the cloud. And there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him. And when the voice was past, Jesus was found alone. Matthew 9:34-36
When Jesus therefore perceived that they would come and take him by force, to make him a king, he departed again into a mountain himself alone. John 6:15

2) Prayer and fasting, refrain from eating earthly food while consuming the bread of life.

And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting. Mark 9-29

Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred. And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. Matthew 4:1-4

3) Watch and pray as the words of Christ occupy our minds and let the Spirit springs out the eternall well of life from within us.

Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. Matthew 26:41

Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is. Mark 13:33
