Colossians 3:16

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom.

We all know that the Word of Christ must dwell in a believer. But Apostle Paul adds two things to the word of Christ dwelling in us.

1. In all wisdom. Yes, to understand and live by the Word of Christ, we need understanding. Not just the understanding of this world, for the wisdom of this world is insufficient to understand the hidden knowledge present in the Word of the Lord Almighty. Since the Word of Christ is given to us from the heavens above, we need the wisdom of God to understand His Word. Yes, we need the Holy Spirit to understand the Word of Christ.

2. Richly. Abundantly. Not in short supply, but in copious amounts. Many Christians learn few verses here and there, but do not take the effort to know the Scriptures completely. And over the years, this has led the Christians to believe in erroneous doctrines like Rapture and to question the divinity or the humanity of Jesus Christ. So, let us yield to the advice of Paul and may the Word of Christ dwell in us richly in all wisdom.
