A paraphrase of Colossians 3:16-17 reads:
Let the word of Christ rearrange the interior household of your life until it comes to match God’s abundant vision for you. How do we do this but by teaching and challenging one another to live in all of God’s wise ways, and by living lives of gratitude until our heart’s song sings in harmony with God’s Spirit song. And whatever you do, whatever you think, whatever you say, do it all with Jesus, giving thanks to the One who is giving us life through him.
Think about your every day life. What is keeping you from living your best life with God? What would your life look like if you “rearranged the interior household of your life” to make it a place where Christ can live in and with you?
For what are you grateful to God? Make a list and share it with your family. Add to it all week as you encounter new things for which you are thankful. How would your life be different if you lived it primarily out of gratitude for God’s abundant blessings rather than focusing on what you wish for or lack? Try it. Pray a prayer of thanksgiving every day.
