“Let the peace of Christ keep you in tune with each other,
In step with each other.
None of this going off and doing your own thing.
And cultivate thankfulness.
Let the word of Christ–the Message–have the run of the house.
Give it plenty of room in your lives.
Instruct + direct one another using good common sense.
And sing, sing your hearts out to God!
Let every detail in your lives–words, actions, whatever–
Be done in the name of the Master, Jesus,
Thanking God the Father every step of the way.”
Colossians 3:17 MSG
Oh, friends. May these words exult over you this weekend. May every line resonate in harmony off the chords of your heart. Be at peace. Stay close to each other. Don’t believe the lie that going off on your own will bring what your soul craves. Stay close to the Word. Let it be very near you, even as near as your own breath. Give it full run of your life. Stand-under it in order to under-stand. Help one another. Reach out. SING. SING your heart out to God. Be so very thankful. Find the things to list, the things to sing out to the praise of His name. They are innumerable. Are you in Christ? Then all the riches of the kingdom are already yours. SING, child. And let every detail–every detail–be done in His name. How that would change our doing. How that could change our being.
And every step of the way.. thank Him.
