16 Let 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. NASB
The word of Christ is
not limited to the gospel, but applies to the entire content of the
scriptures.The Bible is said to be the
mind of Christ.Christ is said to be the
living word. So both the Lord and the words written in the Bible,
are synonymous with each other.
The content of the
Bible is often called Bible doctrine, to embrace all of its teachings.That teaching is to reside within your hearts,
which comes only through a consistent and daily study of the scriptures.
The heart is the pump
in the human body which continuously moves the blood through the body, and in
similar fashion, the heart of the soul is symbolic of doctrine moving constantly
through your soul, coordinating your thoughts, intentions, words and
actions.To govern your entire life in
With all wisdom, means
the information that is beyond the elementary learning stage, and advances to
ones understanding and usefulness of doctrine in ones
instruction. Psalms, and hymns, and spiritual songs, and singing refer to the
mental attitude within your soul. Certainly folks will sing songs with music
and lyrics and such, but often in the ancient world, instruction and the
repetition of instruction was taught through the use of songs and memorization.
Remember that they did
not have radio or internet or any of our modern printed or writing material, as
we have now.
But, as anyone can
learn a song or memorize a verse, then the intent here is to help you to understand
that the content of the Bible, when it so saturates your soul and thoughts,
then becomes music within your mind.
You may not be able to
sing a note of music, but within your soul, you can sing praises and
thankfulness s, and appreciations, from within your thoughts, with deep feelings
and emotions, that spoken words simply cannot express.
In times of stress, in
times of prosperity, in times of despair, in times of happiness, in times that
vary with the seasons, you will sooner or later, turn your mind heavenward, and
thank God for your very existence, even while requesting relief through your
ordeal, or in appreciation for some good fortune.
Remember that this is
the devils world, and it is His intention, through evil, to make you fail.
And it is Gods
intention to make you succeed.
God may allow you to be
taken even up to the brink of destruction, but if your soul is saturated with
doctrine, then your life will be stabilized, and your future sound.
By committing yourself
to a daily study, you are in effect complying with the mandate of study, that all believers are given, whether you are alone
in your studies or with others.
learn, comply, and grow, while residing in the fellowship sphere,
and your heart will begin to pump His views throughout your soul, and the music
in your soul will be one of truth.
And that type of music,
no one can duplicate with any voice or instrument, anywhere in this world.It belongs to the soul and is heard only
there.In order to hear it, you have to
advance in your spiritual life.And only
then will you experience some of the hidden secrets of truth.
Now is the time to post a prayer.

Study to show thyself approved (mature) unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing (studying/discerning), the Word of truth.
