Colossians 3:16 – “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom,…”

A couple of my favorite ministry authors, Colin Marshall and Tony Payne, talk about how Colossians 3:16 can be lived-out:

“What we are really talking about is a Bible-reading movement – in families, in churches, in neighborhoods, in workplaces, everywhere. Imagine if all Christians, as a normal part of discipleship, were caught up in a web of regular Bible reading – not only digging into the word privately, but reading it with their children before bed, with their spouse over breakfast, with a non-Christian colleague at work once a week over lunch, with a new Christian for follow-up once a fortnight for mutual encouragement, and with a mature Christian friend one a month for mutual encouragement.”
