Let the word of God dwell in you richly!
Colossians 3:16 AMP: Let the [spoken] word of Christ have its home within you [dwelling in your heart and mind—permeating every aspect of your being] as you teach [spiritual things] and admonish and train one another with all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs with thankfulness in your hearts to God.
My dear friend in Christ, looking at our text today, what comes to mind is: ‘do believers really understand what it is saying?’ This is because they are highly engrossed in everything else except indebt search and knowledge of Christ. An average believer only has intellectual knowledge of Christ but little or no experience of Him thereof.
But we see the scripture advocating for the experiential knowledge and not intellectual knowledge. It says let it dwell in your heart and mind, permeating every aspect of your being. This is massive. What it means is that you sleep and wake up with the desire to know more of Him. He becomes the last thing you think about before you sleep and the first thing you think about when you wake up.
If you conform your life to this pattern, how can you ever fail in life. This is exactly what Jesus did that made Him victorious all through His life on earth. Now, He has committed same to us. Are you ready to adjust your life to conform to the above command or will you continue the way you are in your struggle and failure? Make up your mind to conform and you will come back rejoicing. Shalom.
Declare to yourself loud: I will not conform to this world.
- My Lord and my God, teach me your ways, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
- Please add your personal intentions.
