Lent 2009 (19) – Getting close to God

Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in the one body. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly; teach and admonish one another in all wisdom; and with gratitude in your hearts sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs to God.
Colossians 3:15-16

It is not only our personal relationship with God which is crucial. In the Old Testament God calls an entire people to be his own. This doesn’t change in the New Testament. God calls a people to be his own, although now he has extended his call to all the peoples of the world.

He calls us to be one body, ruled by his peace. As a people we should have the word of Christ living in us so that we can teach and correct one another wisely. We are to be a thankful people and together we should engage in singing, praising and worshipping.

It is not just me plugging in a pair of headphones to receive my own personal spiritual experience. We listen to and learn from each other.
