Pat Abendroth of Omaha Bible Church preached a message this past Sunday entitled “Recovering Biblical Meditation” which was particularly helpful and edifying. It is edifying as it helps the believer to understand the spiritual discipline of meditation without divorcing it from its objective source: the Scripture.
This is a timely message in light of the contemporary criticisms levied at evangelicals by those in the Emergent Church. They claim that evangelicals have abandoned meditation all together in favor of a fascination to the objective. They of course swing the pendulum the other way and cut off any strings to the objective truth while wading in the sometimes swampy and always murky waters of total subjectivism. This message is a thoughtful and biblical treatment of the topic.
