Message of the Day: Psalms and Hymns As Means Of Instruction and Admonition!
“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.” (Colossians 3:16, NKJV)
The Colossians should be well instructed in the doctrine of Christ, that it should be frequently preached, explained, and enforced among them; and that all the wisdom comprised in it should be well understood. This refers to Christian gatherings where the teaching of the Word and the singing of hymns are the main means of promoting the growth of Christian life. Psalms and hymns are regarded as a method of teaching and admonishing, that is why they were imbued with truth, and to be such as to elevate the mind, and withdraw from error and sin.
We are to lay up the doctrines of the gospel in our hearts, to meditate upon them; to allow them to be our guide so that the word of God would dwell abundantly among us. We are to be so full of the word of God in the heart that the mouth should utter hymns of instruction, admonition, and praise!
