John 6:63

“It is the Spirit who quickens; the flesh profits nothing.” John 6:63
We then have the quickening of the Spirit we have:

  new thoughts, 

  new desires, 

  new hopes, 

  new fears, 

  new joys, and 

  new sorrows. 

The eye fixes on Christ, 

the heart goes out to Christ, and 

the chief desire of the soul is to be like Christ. 

Psalms‬ ‭51‬:‭1-3

Have mercy on me, O God, because of your unfailing love. Because of your great compassion, blot out the stain of my sins. Wash me clean from my guilt. Purify me from my sin. For I recognize my rebellion; it haunts me day and night. (‭Psalms‬ ‭51‬:‭1-3‬ NLT)

God and Meditation.

This is a great read and good explanation of meditation and how it goes hand-in-hand with the believer’s life – or should.


Are you a Christian or even an Atheist and afraid of Meditation because you think it will turn you into a Buddhist, turn you away from your belief in whatever you believe?

Don’t laugh. A great many people associate Meditation with Buddhism because it is such a central part of that philosophy and way of life.

You’re already meditating.

Meditation, for Christians should not be something to fear. In fact, if you are doing as you should, you are likely meditating and not even realizing it. Each morning you should be spending quiet time preparing for your day by praying or talking with God. You are preparing yourself to not allow the events of the day to sway you or influence you.

‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭6‬:‭14-18

How can a believer be a partner with an unbeliever? And what union can there be between God’s temple and idols? For we are the temple of the living God.

Don’t touch their filthy things, and I will welcome you. And I will be your Father, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the LORD Almighty. ” (‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭6‬:‭14-18‬ NLT)

Romans‬ ‭8‬:‭35-37‬

Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? (As the Scriptures say, “For your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep.” ) No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us. (‭Romans‬ ‭8‬:‭35-37‬ NLT)

Proverbs‬ ‭21‬:‭2-3, 21

People may be right in their own eyes, but the LORD examines their heart. The LORD is more pleased when we do what is right and just than when we offer him sacrifices.

Whoever pursues righteousness and unfailing love will find life, righteousness, and honor. (‭Proverbs‬ ‭21‬:‭2-3, 21‬ NLT)
