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 #40) -To Participate and Enjoy the Riches of Christ by Receiving the Word of God

In a well-known verse in the book of Colossians the apostle Paul says “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly.”  How does the word dwell in us?  In 3:16 Paul gives a secret, but not many Christians today enjoy this secret practically in their daily living. So we are devoting today’s program from the life study of the Bible to help all of our listeners and ourselves included into this secret.

We are talking about “how to let the word of Christ dwell in us richly in all wisdom, with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs.”   The subject comes from the book of Philippians as we are studying about the Spirit living in us and Christ living in us and then from that to fill out the very experiential view of Christ in Philippians Brother Lee came to Colossians concerning the Word dwelling in us.  Where he makes the link that for the practical way for the Spirit to dwell in us is for the Word to dwell in us. So these two things together are really two aspects of one way or one means for us to experience Christ and to let Christ lives in us.
