Colossians 3:16 (ESV)
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.
 
The book of Colossians was written by Paul during his time in prison in Rome. During that time, the church in Colossae was coming under attack with false teachings and doctrines. The entire book of Colossians is written to combat these false teachings that were not about Jesus, but angel worship, reliance on human intuition, and strict religious rules. We find verse 16 to be found in a laundry list of items to act as a guide for Christian living.
 
As Christians, we need to be in Bible preparing ourselves from false teachings, worshipping together and sharing wisdom with fellow believers, and always showing our thanks for what Christ did for us in John 3:16. We find this to be especially important when looking at those in the generations after us. Every day, in many different forms, we are being combatted with teachings that oppose Jesus and for numerous reasons we are not prepared with Scripture to show others the truth. This is the very essence of why LCM is striving to GROW YOUNG.

What are some different ways that you help teach and share some of the wisdom you have with young people.
 
What is holding you back from following through with one of the ways you listed above?
