Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us abundantly through Jesus Christ, our Savior.
                                                              Titus 3:5&6

If you have a friend, marriage partner, a parent or child and you only say a quick hi and can I have this on the way to the grocery store, or before you leave for work, school, etc.; you will find that you're relationship is definitely lacking.
This is the same when you are praying to Jesus. This is why meditation is so important. Christians pray in many ways, but it is very important to establish a meditation time. This is a time when you are alone with Jesus, and you meditate upon the word of God, and commune with Jesus.
Meditation is a time when you are  listening to God's commandment as he is saying. "Be still, and know I am God!"  And part of meditation is to quietly wait for Jesus to commune with you. With meditation you do not just talk to Jesus, but you listen.  Sometimes you hear nothing, it seems like a waste of time, but do not give up, because you will find that eventually Jesus will quietly talk to you with a thought that seems wiser than what you ordinarily think, or a feeling of peace, a nudge that helps you to understand something or the realization that you know just what you must do.  This is Jesus, with the Holy Spirit, guiding you and communicating. He is placing His answer in your mind and heart. When you meditate you begin to understand the bible also. Sometimes it is hard for Jesus and the Holy Spirit to get through to us when our days our busy and cluttered with everyday living. You might say that God is trying to get through but the line is busy.
When you take time to meditate, you leave an open line for God to get through to you.

MATTHEW 11:27 & 28
27.) Everything has been entrusted to me by my Father. Only the Father knows the Son, and the Father is known only by the Son and by those to whom the Son reveals him.
28.) Come to me and I will give you rest--all of you who work so hard beneath a heavy yoke--for it fits perfectly--and let me teach you, for I am
gentle and humble, and you shall find rest for your souls, for I give you only light burdens.

Matthew 7:7-11
7.) Ask, and you will receive. Search and you will find. Knock and the door will be open.
8.) Everyone who ask will receive. Everyone who seeks will find. And the door will be open to everyone who knocks.
9.) Would any of you give a hungry child a stone if a child asks for some bread? 10.) Would you give your child a snake if your child asked for a fish?
11.) As bad as you are, you still know how to give good gifts to your children. But your heavenly father is even more ready to give good things to those who ask.

1 Corinthians 13:1-13
1.] What if I could speak
all languages of humans,
and of angels?
If I did not love others,
I would be nothing more
than a noisy gong.
Or a clanging cymbal.
2.] What if I could prophesy
and understand all secrets
and all knowledge?
And what if I had faith
that moved mountains?
I would be nothing,
unless I loved others.
3.] What if I gave away all
that I owned
and let myself
be burned alive?
I would gain nothing,
unless I loved others.
4,] Love is kind and patient,
never jealous, boastful,
proud or 5.] rude.
Love isn't selfish
or quick tempered.
It doesn't keep a record
of wrong that others do.
6.] Love rejoices in the truth,
but not in evil.
7.] Love is always supportive,
loyal, hopeful,
and trusting.
8.] Love never fails!
Everyone who prophesies
will stop,
and unknown languages
will no longer
be spoken.
All that we know
will be forgotten,
9.] We don't know everything,
and our prophesies
are not complete.
10.] But what is perfect
will someday appear,
and what isn't perfect
will then disappear.
11.] When we were children
we thought and reasoned
as children do.
But when we grew up,
we quit our childish ways.
12.] Now all we can see of God
is like a cloudy picture
in a mirror.
Later we will see Him
face to face.
We don't know every thing
but then we will,
just as God completely
understands us.
13.] For now there are faith,
hope, and love.
But of these three,
the greatest is love.

1 CORINTHIANS 12:25-31
25.) HE did this to make all parts of the body work together smoothly, with each part carrying about the others. 26.) If one part of our body hurts, we hurt all over. If one part of our body is honored the whole body will be happy.
27.) TOGETHER YOU ARE THE BODY OF CHRIST. Each of you is a part of his body.       28.) First God choose some of you to be apostles and prophets and teachers for the church. But he also chose some to work miracles or heal the sick, or help others, or be leaders, or speak different kinds of languages. 29.) Not everyone is an apostle. Not everyone is a prophet. Not everyone is a teacher. Not everyone can work miracles. 30.) Not everyone can heal the sick, not everyone can speak different languages. Not everyone can tell what those languages mean.  31.) I want you to desire the best gifts so I will show you a much better way.

THE BODY OF CHRIST!
 1 Corinthians 12:14-24

14.) OUR bodies just don't just have one part. They have many parts. 15.) Suppose a foot says, "I'm not a hand so I'm not a part of the body." Wouldn't the foot still belong to the body? 16.) Or suppose an ear says, "I'm not an eye, so I'm not a part of the body." Wouldn't that ear still be a part of the body? 17.) If our bodies were only an eye, we couldn't hear a thing. And if they were only an ear we couldn't smell a thing. 18.) But God has put all parts of our body together in the way that he has decided is best.
19.) A body really isn't a body, unless there is more than one part. 20.) It takes many parts to make a single body. 21.) That's why the eyes cannot say they don't need the hands. That's also why the head cannot say it doesn't need the feet. 22.) In fact we cannot get along without the parts of the body that seem to be the weakest. 23.) We take special care to dress some parts of our bodies. We are modest about our personal parts, 24.) but we don't have to be modest about other parts.
God put our bodies together in such a way, that even the parts that seem the least important are valuable.
