Word and Deed - Colossians 3:16-17
If we are to walk in the peace to which we have been called we must develop habits and dispositions that will form this new character in us. That can only happen as we learn to practice new behavior within the nursery of the Church. Among those new habits Paul lists three in our sermon text. The first is giving pride of place to the Gospel narrative. Second we are tasked with giving ourselves to loud and vigorous singing of psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs. Finally we are called to integrating all of life under the lordship of Christ and unto the Father's glory.
