Word for Today: Let your heart be richly filled with the word of Christ.
Ministry Of the Word (MOW): True Spirituality ( TS)
“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” ( Colossians 3:16).
We salute everyone especially the family of our Lord Jesus Christ. This is the day the Lord has made.
We want to encourage someone out there to begin to value the word of Christ above every other thing, henceforth. Let the word of Christ dwell in your heart richly. You cannot develop relationship with Jesus Christ over night. Be mindful of the word you speak.
Man was created to function optimally at three broad levels: physical, mental and spiritual. Unfortunately, due to spiritual ignorance (Hosea 4:6), many people tend not to function optimally at the spiritual level. Spiritual functioning is often left only in the hands of the priests, pastors, reverend fathers etc. Jesus is a very good example of a man who was optimally fruitful while on earth. He was fruitful physically, mentally and spiritually. Today, by his special grace, many of us are beneficiaries of his all-round fruitfulness, even though many are not sufficiently appreciative of Him. Man is never complete without optimal functioning at the physical, mental and spiritual levels: “And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power”(Colossians 2:10).
True Spirituality is not a function of our praying ability or ability to fast . Neither is it a reflection of the number of times we ‘go to church’ or our involvement in church activities in the physical sense.
True spirituality is found only in the word of God which is Jesus Christ. Jesus said: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life (John 6:63). The of words of God are spirit and they are life. True spirituality is to do with our ability to put the word of God into practice. The higher our true spirituality level, the higher our ability to practice the word of God. The higher our ability to practice the word of God, the more we are able to commit God to perform His work through us. Hence, the more fruitful our life on earth will be. Indeed, the word of God is the Word of Life(1John1:1).
Spiritual development in Christ Jesus enables us to have certain spiritual qualities, which are the nature of God in Christ, such as the‘fruit of the Spirit’ (Galatians 5:22). Fruitfulness of the spirit will enable believers to develop spiritual understanding and to carry out spiritual exploits in the kingdom.
Let your heart be filled richly with the word of Christ.
