Colossians 3:16, “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God.” (ESV)

Why has Colossians 3:16 been chosen as the key verse for the year 2021?

We have been struggling amid the pandemic, with people confused and unsure what to do. Each person faces their own challenge, but no one can solve their problems on their own. But God Almighty and the Holy Spirit can solve our problems. How? Through the word of God. We may easily be filled with worry, anxiety and fear about the future. But God wants us to be filled with the Spirit. This means being filled with his word, since the Spirit is the Spirit of truth (Jn 14:17) and the Spirit works through God’s word. When we accept God’s word, let it fill out hearts and souls, and earnestly ask for God’s mercy, he will answer us. He will enable us to overcome all challenges. He will work powerfully through his word for campus mission across the world. “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly.” God will surely help us not only to overcome the challenges, but also to sing his praises with gratitude in our hearts to him. In times of trial, may God reveal his glory through our obedience to his word. Amen!
