“Let the Word of Christ—the Message—have the run of the house. Give it plenty of room in your lives. Instruct & direct one another using good common sense. And sing, sing your hearts out to God!”(Colossians 3:16 MSG)
This verse stuck out the most to me about studying the Word when I was looking into verses about its importance.
Since the Word is a living Word, as we encounter in the Father, Jesus & Holy Spirit, it makes sense that the Word (God) would want to:
✔️ Live with us, making itself at Home within us as we make space for the Word to do so.
✔️ Give us wisdom which we are to share with one another.
✔️ Inspire us to worship God (and notice this is through song, which uses words!)
So as I ask God to speak to me through His Word, I also pray that I make the space for His Word to grow & flourish deeply within me, that I might share His wisdom, love, grace & mercy with others.
