It is amazing how the Word of God can change our lives! I was reading in Colossians this morning and I had to stop after verse 17, and go back and read verses 15-17 again and again. I had to ask myself a simple question; Does the peace of Christ rule my heart?
Colossians 3:15-17 says, “Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of our Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.”
Does the peace of Christ rule in your heart? That is a tough question to answer so early in the morning! But, what holds you together when things seem to be falling apart all around you? There is so much truth in these 3 verses but so little time to cover it all in a blog! So I will get right to it.
I want to encourage you to do 4 things every day of your life, and watch how God will transform your heart and give you peace.
1. Be thankful! Take time to tell God thank you for all the blessings of life. Have an attitude of gratitude and don’t take His blessings for granted.
2. Take in the Word of God and let it come alive in you! Receive all the wisdom and love that God wants to give us through His Word. This book is a treasure chest of knowledge, wisdom, and Truth!
3. Worship! “Psalm 100:1-5” You and God! Set aside time to praise Him and adore Him. Sing His praises and shout it out, because He is worthy!
4. And whatever you do, do it for the glory of God! It not about me but it all about Him.
Lord, transform our hearts and give us that peace that only comes from you. Thank you Lord for your Book of Truth! Have a great Friday.
