This Month’s Devotional – Colossians 3:16 ESV
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. Colossians 3:16 ESV
The Lord Jesus was meek and lowly, full of compassion and of great mercy – and the gracious words that fell from His lips were life and health and healing and we are exhorted to let His Word dwell in us richly, both His spoken words and His written word, for they produce in us abundance of life and the spirit of true wisdom.
We should meditate and drink deeply on the word of Christ for His words bring light to the spirit and life to the soul. We should take the pearls of His speech and the jewels that encrust the glorious messages of salvation and shower them down in blessed teachings and wise counsel over the heads of those that are His kingdom of priests, and royal nation – a people set apart for the Lord to serve Him and to worship Him in time and through eternity – to Him be all glory and might and majesty and dominion and praise and power for ever and ever! Amen.
Imagine – the blessed Lord rejoices over His children with singing, proclaiming His unconditional love towards us while pouring out His eternal heavenly grace over all that believe on His name – should we not let His word dwell in us richly in humble thanksgiving and holy reverence as we blend our voices with heavenly choirs of angels – singing psalms and hymns, and spiritual songs, with eternal gratitude in our hearts, to our great and gracious God.
I will sing to the Lord a holy song, for He is good and gracious and has lifted me up and arrayed me in His own righteousness and His banner over me is love – Loving Father, to You be all praise and glory my God and my Saviour, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
