Colossians 3:16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
The key to living out who you are in Christ Jesus is not “rule keeping” but “Word dwelling!” As we love Jesus and seek His face we will love His Word. It is how we learn more about Him. It is how we grow in our knowledge of Him. So as you let the Word dwell in you and you think about it, you meditate on it, you talk about it you will experience growth and a deepening of your relationship.
We are to sing the Word and its truths to each other and to ourselves. We are to mull over what it teaches, to think about it, to study it, to compare it to other verses until it becomes a part of us.
We do not want to make a rule of this. We do this because we want to. We spend time in the Bible because of how much we enjoy learning about Jesus and His will for our lives.
The Word of God is alive and it is powerful. You can count on the Word of God to be used by the Spirit of God to grow you and to deepen your love and relationship with the Lord God of Heaven.
