Have you ever wondered how there was ever such a thing as an Old Testament SAINT? I don't mean how they got saved, but how did they live a godly life?
I mean, think about it â€“ they lived with minimal revelation, difficult communication, continual temptation, and conditional Spirit fullness.
So how did they do it?
How were those with so little, able to live such godly lives in such an evil world?
Why is it that just hearing their names prompt us to admiration and challenge us to devotion; names like Enoch, Noah, Job, Abraham, Moses, Joshua, Ruth, Hannah, David, Elijah, Ezra, and Daniel?
One habit sets each of these apart from the rest of the world. They each practiced the Simple Discipline of Meditation. How did they do it? Were there keys books, seminars, tapes, study guidesâ€¦no, they just grasped a truth from God and wouldn't let go of it. They had depth to their spiritual lives. They had a deep well, deep foundations, deep resources â€“ from meditating upon God's Words
Great Sermon! Fantastic sermon with a great, and yet brief explanation of meditation followed by examples of what meditation is and how to do it. Quite challenging to slow down and digest God's word rather than graze madly.
Great Sermon! Pastor Barnett you and your messages are such a blessing to me and my family! God bless you greatly!
How Encouraging! What a blessing to hear this encouraging message!
