“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom (Colossians 3:16).

In whoever’s heart Christ is dwelling, Christ and His Words will perfectly dwell in their hearts. How will be the Word of Christ? They are spirit and are life (John 6:63). This Word which is Spirit is capable of providing life. It strengthens those who read them. Further, it makes them wise for Salvation (II Timothy 3:15).

“Therefore lay aside all filthiness and overflow of wickedness and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls” (James 1:21). The Scripture has to remain and dwell in you for you to lead a blemishless life of purity. King David who was aware of this secret prayed, “Your word I have hidden in my heart that I might not sin against you” (Psalm 119:11).

Dear children of God, let the Words of God dwell within you with all perfection. When God speaks to you through the Scripture, preserve them in your heart which is the treasury. A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good things (Mathew 12:35). Those promises will lend you support at the appropriate time. “A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver” (Proverbs 25:11).

Jesus Christ had filled His heart which is the treasury with the Scripture. When satan came to test Jesus, He put forth the right answer from the Scripture to every test. When satan asked Him to command to turn the stone into bread, He answered: “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God” (Mathew 4:4). “But the ones that fell on the good ground are those who, having heard the word with a noble and good heart, keep it and bear fruit with patience” (Luke 8:15).

Dear children of God, when you listen or read the Scripture, believing that those are the Word of God, you will feel them working within you. Many people of God have understood this by their experiences. When they believe them, all their curses will be broken and will receive the blessing.

Dear children of God, when the Scripture comes towards you, accept the same longingly. Those words are sweeter than the honey and the honeycomb. “These were more fair-minded than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness, and searched the Scriptures daily to find out whether these things were so” (Acts 17:11).

To meditate: “For they are life to those who find them and health to all their flesh” (Proverbs 4:22).
