Pastor’s Blog
 
Hope you have taken down your Christmas tree, but, if not, you can do it today, the National Day to take down your Christmas tree. Today is also the celebration of little Christmas, known as Epiphany. The day in which the wisemen came to see baby Jesus with their gifts. Epiphany simply means the manifestation of God. As followers of Jesus, how can we manifest Jesus in our life? Apostle Paul admonishes us not to be conformed to this world but to be transformed by the renewing of our minds (Romans 2:12). Therefore, at the beginning of another year, may I suggest to you the following:
 
1. Meditate on a passage of Scripture. Bible reading is very important for our Christian journey and meditation will enable us to a greater extent as we dwell on His word. Meditation is not the practice of a mystical eastern religion. It is advocated over and over again in the word of God. Biblical meditation is a very good habit that is as portable as your brain. It is keeping the words of God close to you with much benefit.
 
2. Memorize small portions of scripture and keep them in your mind as you go about your regular duties of the day. The pandemic has caused many to work from home, which keeps us safe and saves on travel but it has caused many of us to snack throughout the day making frequent trips to the pantry or refrigerator. Better still is to “snack” on God’s word throughout the day by memorizing a passage of Scripture. Write down small passages in post-it notes and stick them in various places you frequent and memorize them.
 
3. Make meditation matutinal, choose the early morning hours to be active for your meditation. Continue to do so throughout the day so that the Master Electrician, the Holy Spirit, can rewire our hearts and minds so that our fuse doesn’t blow up when we are hard pressed. He is able to switch currents from the negative to the positive when our mind is stayed on Him.
 
So, to my blog readers, this week, let us all memorize Psalm 1. Just a thought and not an assignment.
 
Shalom, Shalom!
