SPIRITUAL GUMBO PDF Print

"Let 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."  Colossians 3:16 ESV

Gumbo is a concoction of many different ingredients, right?  Chicken and sausage or shrimp and crab or raccoon and possum – whatever the tastebuds desire.  When mixed together with other flavor boosting veggies and spices or species... they compliment one another taste-wise and make the mouth water as the stomach grumbles.

Not quite the same thing here, but the Apostle Paul is mixing a spiritual gumbo... of sorts.  He begins with the Word of God (this is the main ingredient and it ain't worth eating without it!).  The Word has to permeate all other additions to the pot in order for the meal to be editable!

What would you teach, or use in admonishing if not the Word of God?  There is no spiritual wisdom found outside of God's precepts.  All spiritual songs have only one foundation – and that is the sacred script delivered by God Himself!

The Word must simmer within us, within in our hearts, in order that the flavor of our lives might be pleasing to our God!  Oh sha, when it's cooked right... it brings nothing but delight!

– Dale
