Daily Bread – June 10, 2023 (The Seventh Day – Genesis 2:1-3) Colossians 3:16 – Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms, in hymns, in spiritual songs; singing with grace in your heart to the Lord. The Word Of Christ There is a message living in our hearts, which can only be expressed by the Spirit of God Who dwells in us. Those utterances come forth from our hearts as rivers of living water expressing the majesty and splendor of Who Christ Jesus is. The Word of Christ is a continual unchanging force in the Church as much as His peace is (Colossians 3:15-16). The result of being filled with the Spirit and having the indwelling Word of Christ is the same, it produces thanksgiving from the heart in psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs. In Paul’s letter to the Corinthians, he emphasizes the spiritual song in the context of the language of the spirit (1 Corinthians 14:14-15). He also further reveals to them the dynamic of what teaching and admonition is when he said, “How is it then, brethren, when you come together, every one of you has a psalm, has a doctrine, has a tongue, has a revelation, has an interpretation? Let all things be done unto edifying” (1 Corinthians 14:26). Realizing then that the Word of Christ is the same as the Word of God, we have many Scriptures that help us to understand the work of grace has placed the Word of God in our hearts, so that we may remember, do, and speak what God has spoken. We have been born of the Word of God (1 Peter 1:23). The Word of God has been written in our hearts and minds by the Holy Spirit (2 Corinthians 3:3; Hebrews 8:10, 10:16). The Word of God is at work with power in those who believe (1 Thessalonians 2:13; Acts 20:32). The Word of God is how faith is produced in us (Romans 10:8-17) The Word of God is the sword of the Spirit that gives us the ability to destroy every work of darkness (Ephesians 6:17; Hebrews 4:12-13). When the Word of God dwells on the inside of God’s people, then it makes them strong, so that they can overcome the wicked one on every front (1 John 2:14, 5:18). Blessings, Pastor Mark Spitsbergen
