16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.
The Word of Christ, the living word, this is the scripture.
Only occurs here, but we must allow the word to dwell in our hearts. We must be
spending time reading and studying the word of God. This knowledge of God’s
word is to be used to help guide others, teaching them in the wisdom of God. With
thankful hearts we sing the Psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. Giving all
praise and love to God. This is the life we carry, to hand it down to the next
generation, showing them the love we know that is only found in Christ.
