i’ve been pondering this passage…


Colossians 3:16-17 NASB

SingingCoShotFull

16Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God.

17Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father.

i love this passage.  i pray that Christ’s Word dwells richly within me.  the thing i love about this translation is it goes on to say that we teach and admonish one another WITH psalms, hymns and spiritual songs.  some translations stop that thought and then talk about singing.  i love the NASB because it is an equivalent translated from the Greek.  the Word of Christ is to CONTINUALLY AND ALWAYS dwell in us, and that teaching can be done with song.

so sing with thankfulness and do all you do in the name of the Lord Jesus.
