Today’s reading: Colossians 3:16

“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.”

With life feeling a bit crazy and out of control right now, the powerful message contained in the opening phrase of Colossians 3:16—”Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly”—brought some good perspective today.

My immediate thought as I read this verse was, “God’s Word can’t dwell in us, let alone dwell in us richly, unless we are committed to taking it in (reading or listening to it), reflecting on it, and then responding with our actions.”

With that said, thank you for being part of Powered by 4 and spending time with me each day engaging God’s Word. It brings me joy to know that there is a group of us reading the Bible and learning from it together.

How would you explain the importance of having God’s Word “dwell in you richly” to someone? What are you currently doing to make sure you are filling up your mind and heart with God’s Word? Tami
