Colossians 3:16 NCV: Let the teaching of Christ live in you richly. Use all wisdom to teach and instruct each other by singing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs with thankfulness in your hearts to God.
My dear friend in Christ, today’s message is admonishing us to allow the Teachings of Christ to live in us richly. The Bible used the word live because everything about Christ is life. The word of God is alive. It is meant to live in our hearts. He who has not the word in him has no life. Notice that the word richly was also used because this knowledge is in measures. The more you study to know Him, the more He reveals Himself to you.
When you become filled with the revelation of Christ, you will begin to function like Him. Everything around you begins to come alive because you are now filled with life. The Bible says that the more we know Him, the more like Him we become. 2 Corinthians 3:18. This knowledge of Him is what gives you an edge over everything. Nothing can dominate or defeat you anymore because the greater one lives on your inside.
The Bible also commanded us today to use all wisdom to teach one another about the knowledge of Christ. We are to demonstrate an attitude of gratitude to God who has been so kind to us. We are to sing Psalms and hymns to God our father with joy in our hearts. Don’t allow sorrow to fill your heart. When things don’t work out the way you plan, seek the face of God and recieve divine direction on what to do. Let that word that is alive in you lead the way. I call you blessed.
Declare to yourself loud: your word is alive in me. Glory.
Lord Jesus, reveal more of yourself to me. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
