Bible Verse of the Day – Colossians 3:16-21

Bible Verse of the DayBible Verse of the Day and Thoughts

Colossians 3:16
16 “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.”

This does not mean you need to be or act like a holy roller. Be yourself, but be Christ like. Remember your actions are influencing other people around you and some are waiting for you to make a mistake if they know you are a Christian so it can be a mark on your record. Do things God’s way and you will never go wrong.
