Colossians 3:16  Let the message about the Messiah dwell richly among you, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, and singing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, with gratitude in your hearts to God.

How does the message dwell richly within you? Does the message ooze out of you, like a creme filling that fails to stay in its boundaries of cake?

As Christians, Paul instructs us to be so filled with the message of the Messiah that we cannot help it from escaping our lips and thoughts. As we dwell upon that Word, that holiness fills us and overflows into others, so that others may see and testify to the message that has saved us. Sometimes it comes out in speech, and sometimes in song. But may it always be when we are in one another’s presence, this message oozes out in holy worship and joy when we fellowship together.
