Meditate on the love of Christ.

Serious meditation on the love of Christ, would make us love him in return. “Can one walk on hot coals and his feet not be scorched?” (Prov 6:28). Who can tread by meditation upon these hot coals of Christ’s love and his heart not burn in love to him?

Thomas Watson, Meditation: A Christian on the Mount


Without meditation, the most joyous, incredible news a man could ever receive, that “Jesus died to save you from your sins,” can sound hollow and empty. What does that statement even mean? To the non-believer who hasn’t meditated on it, it may only be a platitude they’ve heard from evangelicals. It isn’t until you understand the weight of this that it will affect your heart and make you realize it changes everything. You were on the road to hell, and there was absolutely nothing you could do about it, but God had his own Son killed to pardon you. It’s vital to think regularly about this and allow it to reinvigorate your affections, even if you’re already saved. How could you feel anything other than immense, life-changing love after meditating on the love of Jesus in his sacrifice?
