(KJV.) COLOSSIANS 3:16-17
(16) Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
(17) And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.
SEEDS OF THE SPIRIT
Brethren, in the beginning, our Father said, "Let there be light and there was light." (Genesis 1:3); he spoke all things into existence by words of his mouth; notably, lights would not have manifested in darkness, without the words of our Father, to manifest in the firmament of glory: our Father spoke his words with faith, faith comes by hearing, and hearing by his words: therefore, if the spirit of our Father dwells in our mortal bodies, let us mind our spoken words, they are powerful as well, and will manifest thought process, positively or negatively when spoken out into the atmospheres; let us be careful what words we hear, to influence our thought processes into our hearts, engineered actions and behaviors.
If anyone should ask, where do these words come from, to implant our spirits? Firstly, Jesus was the Word spoken by our Father, to create all things of creation, (John 1:1-5); therefore, spirits of Jesus Christ leaves within all things of creation, that is the major aspect of the word. Secondly, we receive the word into our spirits when our Father, breathe his breath of life into humanity; (Genesis 2:7); thereafter, the word became seeds planted within our spirits, whenever we speak, we throw out seeds from our innermost spirits, into the atmosphere, to manifest upon our own lives, or lives of others: therefore, let us be careful of our words.
Physically, sown seeds need plant food, water, adequate sunshine to grow; therefore, farmers work tirelessly to nourish soils of their plantations, keep seeds lively, for healthful growth and maturity: spiritually, our Father planted his words through breath of life, breathed into mortal bodies; to be powerful as he is, one has to watered down his words within our spirits every day, bear good fruits, if we neglect to take care of his words, nothing good will germinate from our spirits, we cannot bear fruits, worthy of harvesting: (John 15); if we ask ourselves, how can we nourish seeds of the spirits already planted within our spirits? the answer is simple, we have to read his words every day, word resources come from our Father, to fertilize and nourish his words within our spirits: therefore, the word is essential to the welfare of humanity; saved or unsaved, our blessings, happiness, healings, victories etc. come from the word of our Father, which is Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Amen!
Therefore, in today's text Apostle Paul encourages believers to "Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns, spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him."; in other words, let us eat the words of Christ to its fullest, be filled with his words, which has wisdom, to warn others of perils and dangers of this world, instruct them to walk in godliness, preach the kingdom message, reprove one another gently with kindness, counsel against wrong practices, guide souls pathways from darkness into life everlasting.
In all things, let us give thanks to our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Amen and Amen!
