A LIFESTYLE IN GOD'S WORD

 
"Let the word of Christ, rich as it is, dwell in you." —Colossians 3:16
 

One reason we at Presentation Ministries publish One Bread, One Body is to encourage Catholics, and other Christians, to get into the word of God. We pray that our readers would let the word of Christ dwell in them (Col 3:16) to such an extent that they will bring God's word to many people who otherwise would never have received it.

To let the word of Christ dwell in you, do the following:

  • Devour God's word; let it become your happiness and joy (Jer 15:16).
  • Study it daily (Acts 17:11) and allow it to burn in your heart (Lk 24:32).
  • Savor God's word. Let it become to you more precious than riches and sweeter than honey (Ps 119:72, 103).
  • Allow God's word to judge (Jn 12:48), pierce (Heb 4:12), and change you.
  • Abide in God's word (Jn 8:31) and let it abide in you (Col 3:16). Spend your best time and your spare time in the word.
  • "Humbly welcome the word that has taken root in you, with its power to save you. Act on this word" (Jas 1:21-22).
  • Let God's word fill your heart, mind, and soul to the point that your native language is "Scripture" (Ps 119:13; Lk 6:45).
  • Teach the word of God to others (2 Tm 4:2).

Let the word of Christ dwell in you so "the word of God [will continue] to spread and increase" (Acts 12:24).

 
Prayer: Jesus, open my mind to the understanding of Your word (Lk 24:45). "In Your word I hope" (Ps 119:114).
Promise: "The measure you measure with will be measured back to you." —Lk 6:38
Praise: Elizabeth takes seriously her co-worker commitments, reading and praying the Scriptures every day.
