Colossians 3:16, Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. 17 And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.

From time to time, I come across spiritual elites. A spiritual elitist is someone who pretends to be more spiritual than the average Christian or one who claims to have some special knowledge beyond the Bible that very few can understand. However, Colossians 3 says, “Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom… 17 And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.”

I am thankful for those words from Apostle Paul when he said, “Let the message of Christ dwell among you…” Those words “among you” mean every one of you. You see the message of Christ is not reserved for a select few spiritual elites. No, in fact Paul says the message of Christ is available to every one of us, and that message is found in the written words of the Bible. All we have to do is take the time to read it. So today, spend some time reading God’s Word. After all, that’s why God gave it to us.

Think about it, and have a blessed day!
