• We begin by prizing the name of our Lord Jesus Christ (Colossians
3:17). This liberates us from being consumed with our own names and reputations. We are called to sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs with thankfulness in our hearts to God.
• We continue by pursuing the peace of our Lord Jesus in our own lives and relationships (Colossians 3:14). This occurs as we confess our sins and forgive those with whom we have complaints.
• We then devote ourselves to planting the word of Christ deeply in our hearts (Colossians 3:16) as we hear the Word of God read and preached.
• As a result, the Spirit of God begins a transformation process by which He produces the character of Christ in us (Colossians 3:5-12), and we are sent forth from God’s sanctuary to love and serve our neighbors.
Please pray that your worship would so transform your life that you reflect more of the character of your Lord in your daily life.
