Along with love and truth, Colossians 3 instructs us that the church is to be marked by peace and the Word of God. Where differences threaten our fellowship, how do we find this peace? By remembering the lengths Jesus went to on Calvary, we are motivated to let His peace rule in our hearts and to pursue peace in our relationships with each other. When a deep love for His Word inspires us, we not only read and study it, but consider its meaning and how to apply it in our lives.
15And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. 16Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. 17And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
