Colossians 3:16 (NET) Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and exhorting one another with all wisdom, singing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, all with grace in your hearts to God.
Ola had once come out for an altar call when he was a teenager. He accepted Christ as his Lord and savior that day, but he fell back into his old life when he resumed school weeks later.
There were times he would try to be holy, but this usually didn’t last long. The longest period of sanctification he ever experienced was four weeks. But after those four weeks, he fell back into a life of sin.
Ola got a breakthrough in his spiritual life when he attended a conference filled with great teaching sessions. There, he was taught that Christianity is a relationship. He was introduced to the Holy Spirit and was baptized with the evidence of speaking in tongues. He learned that if he wanted to grow spiritually he would have to give more time to the word of God and to prayers.
He deleted all the worldly music on his phone and filled it with sermons that he started listening to. He also started making new friends because all his old friends were unbelievers.
The Lord became real to Ola. What he now had was a relationship and not merely religion. For the first time in his life, Ola now knew he was in Christ and he was no more afraid of the future or the unknown.
Go into today remembering that the secret to consistent spiritual growth is consistent feeding on God’s word. Ask the Lord to help you give more time to the word and prayer.
