Word of Christ should dwell in us

The Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth (John 1:14).

Jesus is the revelation of God’s Word and the character of His thoughts, opinions, imaginations and entire being. He was the Word of God in flesh and a master of words. The Bible tells us how the temple guards who were sent to arrest Him, stopped to listen to Him, and upon hearing His words, went back without arresting Him.

When the chief priests and Pharisees asked why they returned without Him, the officers replied, "No man ever spoke like this Man!" (John 7:46 NKJV).His words brought healing to the sick, restored sight to the blind, unstopped deaf ears, gave the lame new legs to walk, and raised the dead. His words were different. The Bible says He cast out demons with His words (Matthew 8:16). He ruled and reigned with words. He showed us the power of words; their value and how to use them.

Don’t just talk; speak the Word. Build our self. Develop our spirit and distinguish our self. Make our words different and become an excellent person. This won’t happen, however, until we feed our spirit with the right information—God’s Word. The Bible says, "For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things" (Matthew 12:34-35).

God gives us His Word so we can receive it, meditate on it, and let it become a part of us. Jesus said, "Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God" (Matthew 4:4). Remember, food becomes a part of our body when we eat. In the same way, if we would meditate on God’s Word, we’ll produce God’s words. If we don’t have it in us, it can’t come out of us.

"Let the word of Christ dwell in us 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" (Colossians 3:16).
