Paul commands us to let the Word of Christ dwell in us richly (Colossians 3:16).
Yet for too many of us, the Bible is an add-on to our lives, not the center of our hearts, minds, words, and actions.
In this episode, we talk about what it means for the Word of God to dwell in us abundantly and how it in turn should bubble forth out of our lives to the world around us.
