One Another Devotion - Day 23

One Another

Encouraging one another - Speak Life

Chalane Coit

Colossians 3:16 (NIV)

16 Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. 17 And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.


This verse tells us to encourage (teach and admonish) one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns and songs from the Spirit. It reminds me of a song from Toby Mac called, “Speak Life.”


There is so much wisdom in this song.


Here are the lyrics:


Speak Life, by TobyMac


Some days life feels perfect

Other days, it just ain't workin'

The good, the bad, the right, the wrong

And everything in between

Yo it's crazy, amazing

We can turn our heart through the words we say

Mountains crumble with every syllable

Hope can live or die


So speak life, speak life

To the deadest darkest night

Speak life, speak life

When the sun won't shine and you don't know why

Look into the eyes of the broken hearted

Watch them come alive as soon as you speak hope

You speak love, you speak

You speak life, oh oh oh oh oh

You speak life, oh oh oh oh oh


Some days the tongue gets twisted

Other day my thoughts just fall apart

I do, I don't, I will, I won't

It's like I'm drowning in the deep

Well, it's crazy to imagine

Words from my lips as the arms of compassion

Mountains crumble with every syllable

Hope can live or die


So speak life, speak life

To the deadest darkest night

Speak life, speak life

When the sun won't shine and you don't know why

Look into the eyes of the broken hearted

Watch them come alive as soon as you speak hope

You speak love, you speak

You speak life, oh oh oh oh oh

You speak life, oh oh oh oh oh


Lift your head a little higher

Spread the love like fire

Hope will fall like rain

When you speak life with the words you say

Raise your thoughts a little higher

Use your words to inspire

Joy will fall like rain when you speak life with the things you say


So speak life, speak life

To the deadest darkest night

Speak life, speak life

When the sun won't shine and you don't know why

Look into the eyes of the broken hearted

Watch them come alive as soon as you speak hope

You speak love, you speak

You speak life, oh oh oh oh oh


Go watch this video on Youtube today. It is very good. Read the lyrics as you watch it.


Speaking life to one another is a way to encourage one another.


Colossians 3:16 starts out like this: “Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly…”


The message of Christ is life. The message of Christ is love. Let that message dwell in you richly as you speak life to one another.


Speak life. That is the message of Christ.


John 10:10

A thief is only there to steal and kill and destroy. I came so they can have real and eternal life, more and better life than they ever dreamed of.


1. Who needs to hear the message of Christ today - the message of life, the message of love? What are you going to do about it?


2. How can you speak life to people today?


3. If you haven’t been speaking life to someone, repent of that to God, apologize to the person, and begin speaking life from here.
