Colossians (Program #47) – The Word Of Christ Inhabiting Us

Colossians 3:16 says, “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms, hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your heart to God.” Immediately after speaking about the peace of Christ arbitrating in us, Paul goes on to tell us to let the word of Christ dwell in us. Why does Paul mention the indwelling word after the peace of Christ? The answer to this question relates to a basic principle revealed in the Bible that God’s speaking requires oneness. Whenever God’s people are divided, His word becomes rare. But when oneness is intact, even the oneness that is produced by the very life of Christ operating in us, God’s word automatically opens and the light pours in.

Philippians (Program #37) -The Rich Word, the Bountiful Supply, and Unceasing Prayer for Living Christ

“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to God.”  Colossians 3:16.  We have another life study today revealing the secret of connecting the Word, the bountiful supply of the Spirit and unceasing prayer for the purpose of living Christ.

We come to the critical matter of just how to take this processed Triune God that we’ve been hearing about in recent programs into our being as food.  Many of us have thought that this means to just memorize Bible verses and recite them, may be we have a box full of verses that sits on our dinner table and we practice that. This is a good practice that we don’t put it down. But there is more to this then just memorizing verses.
