ADMONITION of CHRISTIANS

October 4, 2016

Tuesday

 

Colossians 3:16

 

Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God.

 

 

LESSON

 

Paul urged his readers not only to divest themselves of behavior that is inappropriate to their union with Christ, but also to clothe themselves with attitudes and actions that are appropriate. He did so to complete their understanding of their responsibilities as Christians.

The imperative is “Let dwell (the word of Christ).” The “word of Christ,” used only here in the New Testament, is Christ’s teachings, not only during His earthly ministry but also in all of Scripture.247 His Word should permeate our whole being so that we make all decisions and plans in its light. Thus we are to submit to the demands of the Christian message and let it become so deeply implanted within us as to control all our thinking.
