Colossians 3:16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and exhorting one another with all wisdom, singing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, all with grace in your hearts to God.

Let the word of Christ dwell in us. To dwell means to reside or live. First we must know the word of Christ. His word is recorded for us in the Holy Bible. For the word to dwell in us we must read, study meditate and ask the Holy Spirit to show us hoW to apply it to our lives in our time and place. We are not only to do this, we are to share what we learn with others and encourage them with what we have learned. We are also to sing the words as music helps bring the words into our emotions and beings. With all of this comes humility as we grow to understand who we are in comparison to Who Christ is. Our question is will we choose to make the effort to Obey this so we may be rich n Christ Jesus?
