The life in Christ is about change/transformation. We desire to be changed. God desires to change us. And He has give us His written Word, the Bible, as one of the primary catalyst for that change. No spiritual discipline is more foundational than Scripture study and meditation. There simply is no healthy Christian life apart from Scripture. Meditation and Study are not the same thing: Meditation is devotional [heart], Study is analytical [head]. Meditation will savor a word while study will clarify it. Study provides a framework within which meditation can thrive.
