Colossians 3:16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.


It is so very important that we continuously stuff our lives with the Word of God.  There are many verses that command and suggest that we study the Word of God daily.  2Timothy 2:15 commands that we study the Word that we might be approved of the Lord as a good steward of the Word and that we might rightly divide it without taking it out of context.  The Word is vital to our spiritual health.  Notice our verse says we need it in us “richly”.  This word means abundantly.  And this abundant supply should produce spiritual wisdom.  Carnally we tend to make unwise decisions.  Carnally we will make decisions to make the flesh feel better and look better than those around us.  The flesh is a boastful beast.  It is a controversial beast.  The Word of God, if applied correctly to our life, will keep the flesh humbled down to level.  An abundant supply of the Word of God will humble us into submission unto the Spirit of God.  Our text says that an ample supply of the Word will cause admonishing.  This process is the Word actively correcting us and impressing its righteousness upon us.  Our conversations will include the Word.  Our actions will show the Word.  Notice it will even show itself through singing.  I see our verse says it will cause us to prefer spiritual songs.  “With grace in your hearts to the Lord”.  Wow, the Word is vital.  A Christian who is worldly and self-centered is one who barely has a supply of Word in their life.  And sadly, without a miraculous intervention of conviction they will continue to get colder and worldlier.  An abundant supply of the Word is vital to our spiritual health.  It is our guide.  Ps 119:105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. Have you had your daily dose yet?  Don’t leave home without it.  It causes grace to flourish in our daily life.  Amen.

Colossians 3:18  Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord. 19 Husbands, love your wives, and be not bitter against them. 20 Children, obey your parents in all things: for this is well pleasing unto the Lord.


Today’s devotion is a group of verses we call all in the family.  These three verses cover the whole home.  Notice that we start with the wife.  This is because the wife is the heart of the home.  If the wife is not right with God then the whole home will be crippled.  Even if Dad and the kids are committed to serving the Lord, if Mom is not right then her spiritual condition will affect everyone else.  A grouchy Mama will cause unnecessary pressure in the home and on the marriage.  Our wife verse reminds us that she must submit herself to her husband.  Whether we agree with this or not is not the discussion.  The Lord commands that wives submit themselves to their own husbands.  Notice it says to their own husbands.  Wives, leave everyone else’s husband alone… amen!  The wife is to submit to her husband because the husband is the head of the home.  He is responsible for all.  The chips fall at his feet.  He will answer for his household.  So, wives please don’t cause extra heartache on him because of your domineering attitude.  Next we see the husband verse.  The husband is commanded to love his wife.  This love has nothing to do with gifts.  Even though it is kind to give the wife a gift on special occasions, it is not gifts that prove love.  Love is something that is shown daily, momentarily and often.  It is shown by our attitudes.  A selfish, self-centered attitude does not meet the commands of God.  Maybe she does not meet your criteria… suck it up and shut up… you married her and promised God to love her through good and bad.  We have so many babyish husbands who think they are released from loving their wives because she does not meet their expectations.  According to the Word of God this is not an acceptable excuse.  Our verse warns the husband not to be bitter against his wife.  If she is not doing right then the most powerful tool we have is prayer.  Ask the Lord to correct your wife.  A praying husband is a very influential husband.  The same goes to the wife.  A praying wife will experience great miracles in her home.  Lastly, we have the kids verse.  The kids are commanded of God to obey their parents.  A child who is disobedient is rebelling against the commands of God.  Rebellion is a very dangerous thing.  Proverbs teaches us that if a child wishes to live a long life then they must be obedient to their parents.  Even when you don’t like it you must be obedient.  Your parents know what is best.  The Lord has given them the wisdom they need to lead and guide you into life.  A disobedient and rebellious child will suffer great consequences of their parents and of God Himself.  Kids, it pays to be obedient.  Now, after our lengthy family discussion I must say that the Lord’s commands here in these verses are depending upon the wife and husband being saved and servants of the Lord.  If the husband is lost and ungodly in his leadership, the wife should please the Lord first and foremost.  If the parents are lost and ungodly then the Lord does not command the children to commit ungodliness in order to obey their parents.  We must use common sense here.  These verses are verses of great wisdom and they reveal vital ingredients to a happy home.  Wives, husbands and children, get in your place and serve the Lord in complete obedience and you will experience great joy and happiness.  Amen.

 Colossians 3:23 And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;


My Dad always taught us that whatever you do is worth doing right.  As a kid who was always looking for a shortcut, this was not what I wanted to hear.  But I must say he was right.  Whatever we do is worth doing right.  If we do not do it right then it will not be worth anything.  It never pays to half do something.  My friend, responsibility comes with being a child of God.  We have a natural conviction within to please the Lord is every thing.  When we half do something it stirs our conviction to correct our mess.  It should be our desire to make God look good in all that we do.  Our confession to the world as a child of the Lord is a serious matter.  Our testimony matters!  Have you ever heard the old cliché “Cleanliness is next to godliness”?  Well, this is not scripture but actually it can be backed up with our verse for today.  The Christian that is striving to fulfill this verse will have a yearning to do things right and in order.  My personal opinion is that the outside of a Christian’s life proves the inside of their life.  If everything is trashy, filthy and unkept on the outside of their life then the inside is probably trashy and filthy as well.  Responsibility is a true conviction of the saved child of God.  Our verse says that we should do all we do heartily as to the Lord.  The last phrase of our verse reminds us that if we only do right to please men then we are operating from the wrong incentive.  Yes, if we strive to please the Lord then we will most likely please those that are our superiors.  Actually, pleasing our superior is scriptural.  Col. 3:22 Servants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh; not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but in singleness of heart, fearing God.  We are pleasing them in order to please the Lord and in return pleasing the Lord will please them.  It all works together to keep a clean and responsible testimony.  Let’s do it right today. Let’s make the Lord look good in our life.  Amen.


For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God
Eph 2:8.
