In Colossians 3:16 we read, “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.” We should read the Bible as often as we can so that the Words of Christ will really dwell in us, and so that we will know true wisdom, the wisdom of God.
Isn’t it interesting that we can admonish or give earnest advice and teach others through the singing of psalms and hymns and spiritual songs? This would indicate that the singer is not singing alone, but is singing with someone or singing to someone. And we notice that there are three different kinds of singing—psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs. Psalms are found in the Bible, hymns are songs of praise to God, and spiritual songs are songs which most likely encourage or lift the spirits of ourselves and others by helping us to focus on our wonderful God and our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. The purpose of the “Hymns” skill is to become more aware of our rich heritage in hymns, and to become obedient to the gentle command to be singing with grace in our hearts to the Lord.
