Let The Word Of Christ Dwell In You Richly

[16] Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. Colossians 3:16 We know that all Scripture is God breathed and is profitable for...

Above All These Things Put On Love

[14] And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. Colossians 3:14 We have all heard numerous messages over the years on the subject of loving one another and yet this most simplest of things seems to be the one thing we struggle...
