This Week with Henri Nouwen – Meditating on the Word
“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”. – Henri Nouwen
