Evident and Active

Re:Verse passage – Colossians 3:10-17 (day seven)  “Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you” Colossians 3:16a

“I love my Bible. I read it every day” Pastor Don Guthrie would say during so many of our children’s sermons. Words that were not just meant to teach our children a valuable lesson about the importance of reading their Bible, nor to subtly set an example for the congregation attentively watching along, but words that were undeniably true. Words that cause you to ask the same question of yourself; do I love my Bible?

This type of love is evident and active. When you love your Bible, you are dwelling in the Words of Christ. You are opening those pages; spending time meditating on the words He has spoken. Then His words begin to shape, mold, and change you. He helps you take off the old and put on the new. He shows you how to put on love. None of which is possible on our own. He makes these changes in you as you dwell with Him. When you love your Bible, your love becomes evident and active.

  1. Your words warmed my heart, Rick. It was so sweet hearing someone use Pastor Don’s “I read my bible every day” comment in the children’s message. And it couldn’t be more true that in that comment is the source of learning how to draw closer to the Lord and putting on his love. …enabling us to become more like the person we were created to be.
