Colossians 3:16-Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. (NIV)
We live in a society that likes to water down scripture and alter the fullness of the Word. If we have come to a saving relationship with Jesus Christ, we should be participating in active ministry. Sharing the Good News about Jesus and how His sacrifice gives us the option to have eternal life through Him must be a part of who we are. “Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach.” That has to mean something to us. We can’t just passively read this verse and not make a move to share the importance of Christ. It is a life or death situation. Don't let the Word of God be watered down to fit your liking. “Let the message of Christ dwell among you RICHLY.” Richly meaning full in measure, plentiful, entirely, wholly, completely, absolutely, and totally. Are you so full in Christ that you have to share because you can’t contain it? I want my walk with Christ to be an active ministry, one that pours out Christ because of His fullness that lives in me. May our lives scream, He is alive, and because He lives, I have eternal life. Heavenly Father thank you for your Word. May we always be aware of its richness and let it dwell within us. God, I pray today that one young person reads this and they can't contain what you have done in their life, and they share you. Father let it be so. I love and give you praise it’s in Jesus name I pray, amen.
