Above All, Put On Love

Verse Logo

Colossians 3:12-17 (VOICE)

Paul tells them the key to remain unified is to show compassion and forgiveness toward one another.

Since you are all set apart by God, made holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with a holy way of life: compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. Put up with one another. Forgive. Pardon any offenses against one another, as the Lord has pardoned you, because you should act in kind. But above all these, put on love! Love is the perfect tie to bind these together. Let your hearts fall under the rule of the Anointed’s peace (the peace you were called to as one body), and be thankful.

Let the word of the Anointed One richly inhabit your lives. With all wisdom teach, counsel, and instruct one another. Sing the psalms, compose hymns and songs inspired by the Spirit, and keep on singing—sing to God from hearts full and spilling over with thankfulness. Surely, no matter what you are doing (speaking, writing, or working), do it all in the name of Jesus our Master, sending thanks through Him to God our Father.

For Paul it isn’t enough just to believe the right things. Right belief always produces right living. The gift of salvation demands that we put into practice the character of our King. Just as we take off and throw away old, worn-out clothes, we must strip off certain attitudes and actions of our old selves. Since our lives have been made new in Him, things like sexual immorality, greed, anger, lies, and the rest must find no place in us. But it is not enough to strip off the old; we must put on the new. And that new creation has many qualities of Jesus: compassion, gentleness, and humility; putting up with each other, forgiving each other, and above all, loving each other. These are the ways of Jesus, so they must be our ways too.

Thank You All!

 

200 Followers Badge

I was checking my notifications this morning and I was stunned to have found this badge. When I started this blog I had no idea of what the Lord had in store for me, only that he wanted me to share my story on here. I have no writing experience (as you may have guessed by now) and I’m a listener, not a talker so words don’t come easy for me.

Reading all of your comments of love and encouragement, and being able to learn so much through your personal testimonies, truly wise teachings, amazing photography and building friends through fellowship I feel deeply touched!

What I am trying to say is… THANK YOU ALL! 

I hope I can continue to be a small blessing or inspiration to you! God bless you all!

I’m so excited today as my great friend and brother in Christ Ben accepted his invitation from me to post his spirit led writings on my little blog for us all to enjoy. Ben leads our new small mens group ‘The Dynamic Force‘ and much more. He also helps disciple me each day with encouragement, conviction and prayer.

I pray that his writings will help encourage, challenge and bless you as we all travel along this amazing journey.

Check out his first (and hopefully not last) post ‘The Dynamic Force‘ and also check out his blog ‘The Most Excellent Way
