David Jeremiah Devotional 14th September 2022, Wednesday
TOPIC: The Word in Song
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. Colossians 3:16
Recommended Reading: Colossians 1:15-20 (NASB)
15 [a]He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation: 16 for [b]by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones, or dominions, or rulers, or authorities—all things have been created through Him and for Him.
17 He [c]is before all things, and in Him all things [d]hold together. 18 He is also the head of the body, the church; and He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that He Himself will come to have first place in everything.
19 For [e]it was the Father’s good pleasure for all the [f]fullness to dwell in Him, 20 and through Him to reconcile all things to Himself, whether things on earth or things in [g]heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross.
David Jeremiah Devotional 14th September 2022 MESSAGE
“Mighty Fortress Is Our God” is a famous hymn written by the Protestant reformer Martin Luther. The first line of the hymn-“A mighty fortress is our God, a bulwark never failing”-is likely based on Scriptures like Psalm 46:7,11 and Psalm 91:1-2-verses which speak of God as a fortress.
Luther’s hymn is an example of many throughout Church history that teach biblical truth
through song. The book of Psalms was a type of hymnbook for Israel, but the practice of composing spiritual songs did not end with the Old Testament. New
Testament scholars find remnants of early Christian hymns embedded in passages like Ephesians 5:14; Philippians 2:6-11; Colossians 1:15-20; and 1 Timothy 3:16. Just as we memorize popular songs today by hearing them played over and over, we can also memorize biblical truths by the repeated singing of hymns and spiritual songs.
Consider purchasing a hymnal to use in your devotions to familiarize yourself with the riches of God’s Word as recorded in hymns of the Church.
Thy Word is like a glorious choir, and loud its anthems ring. – Edwin Hodder
Read-Thru-The-Bible: Hosea 1-4
