Meditating on The Word

Table of Contents

“On April 9, 1945, Pas Dietrich Bonhoeffer was executed by the Nazis for steadfastly opposing them throughout the Hitler era.

He left a legacy of spiritual writing that continues to enrich the lives of Christians throughout the world. This book contains a selection from those writings—for the first time in English, including his meditation on Psalm 119…” (Quote)

Pastor Bonhoeffer said it this way,

“I do not treasure God’s promise in my understanding but in my heart. It is not to be analyzed by my intellect but pondered in my heart. It is like the word of a dear friend which lives in my heart even when I do not think about it at all…”

Pastor Bonhoeffer’s meditation on Psalms 119

Another book authored by Bonhoeffer which I appreciated is “The Cost of Discipleship.” That title is listed among the twelve books he wrote in his short lifetime.

As one reads this book, one can’t help but be impacted by this man’s dedication and commitment to the Lord. He shares the importance of meditation in a believer’s life. Under the heading of “On Meditations,”  he provides instruction for how to have a life of dedication. He shares some sermons and meditations on the following Psalms—62, 42, 50, and 119.

I read this book many years ago and I am delighted to see that it is available in new publications. This is an easy read and a valuable source for one’s devotional life.
