“Let the message about Christ, in all its richness, fill your lives.”
– Colossians 3:16a NLT
Paul tells us that we have to do more than just hear the word of Christ. We have to absorb it, let it live inside us, let it dwell in our hearts and minds. We, as Christians, have to apply His message to every part of our lives. We must take it with us wherever we go.
We take it to work when it’s going to be a long day.
We take it to the grocery store when all the checkout lines are full.
We take it to the doctor when we are worried about the results.
We take it out with us when we have Girl’s Night with our friends.
When you are feeling content, know that that peace comes from God.
When you are full of joy, sing praises to His name.
When you are suffering, fall to your knees and cry out to him.
When you are angry with someone, remember that God loves that person very much and He wants you to treat them with love and respect.
No matter where you are, no matter what you are feeling, keep His word first.
Lord, please help me keep You at the front of my mind at all times. I want You to fill every area of my life, and I want you to be a part of everything I do. Amen
