Memorize This Week
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.
17 And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.Here there is not Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free; but Christ is all, and in all.
Do It and Receive It
As we add Colossians 3:16 to our memory work this week, notice the themes we are to let happen.
- Let love bind (Colossians 3:14)
- Let peace rule (Colossians 3:15)
- Let words sing (Colossians 3:16)
Although each of these are things we can and should actively do and participate in, they also are things that we receive as gifts from Christ.
Christ IS love and peace and the word.
Let us be thankful to Jesus this week as we dwell in the beautiful Word and as we sing about and to Him.
Only one week left! Even if you’ve not been memorizing with us, please join us this week and next week as we meditate on and are blessed by these truths about our Christ.
