Relationships

The Live-In!

February 1, 2017

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

In Christ, we have to remember that no aspect of our relationship with Him will be forced upon us!  In essence, our growth and new aspects of our relationship with Him will occur only through what we allow to be deposited within us!  Take for instance, the parable of the seed and the sower.  As such, there were four types of soil which represented our hearts.  In this parable, we learn only seeds falling on good fertile ground actually took root and produce fruit!  In effect, retaining God’s word depends solely upon each individual heart and how well we have cultivated our hearts, not just to receive the word, but to allow it to dwell within us!  In other words, the word must become such a part of us that we cannot live without it!  When we do, we must understand the word will not dwell within us in an obscure manner!  In essence, once the word is firmly rooted, our lives will exude an abundance of spiritual knowledge and revelation, peace, and joy!  Therefore, we must understand that God’s word has the capability of transforming our lives, but transformation is a choice!  As such, His word is not restricted and available to every heart that chooses to allow it to dwell within!  So, are you willing to allow the word of God to reside, live, abide and dwell within you?  If you are, the word becomes what I like to call “The Live-in!”
