Nouwen – Meditation

When Jesus says: « Sky and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away » (Luke 21:33), he shows us a direct way to eternal life. The words of Jesus have the power to transform our hearts and minds and lead us into the Kingdom of God. « The words I have spoken to you, » Jesus says, « are spirit and they are life » (John 6:63).

Through meditation we can let the words of Jesus descend from our minds into our hearts and create there a dwelling place for the Spirit. Whatever we do and wherever we go, let us stay close to the words of Jesus. They are words of eternal life.
