Why did Dietrich Bonhoeffer spent so much time in prayerful meditation of God’s Word? Well, in his own words…

Why do I meditate?

Because I am a Christian. Therefore, every day in which I do not penetrate more deeply into the knowledge of God’s Word in Holy Scripture is a lost day for me. I can only move forward with certainty upon the firm ground of the Word of God. And, as a Christian, I learn to know the Holy Scripture in no other way than by hearing the Word preached and by¬† prayerful meditation (Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Meditating on the Word, 30).

Yes, he was a theologian, Christian leader and a pastor. Yet, the primary reason Bonhoeffer meditated on God’s Word was because he was a follower of Jesus Christ.

The application is simply: Our delight is to be in the law of the Lord, and on that law, we meditate day and night (Psalm 1.2).
