Clothe Yourselves

Colossians 3:12 Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. 13 Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others. 14 Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony. 15 And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful.

Yesterday we discussed the new nature that we put on as fully devoted followers of Christ. Today we see that God chose us to be holy and part of our responsibility is to live holy. Living holy requires some new clothes. Everybody loves new clothes! Clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Call it the Christian's Layered Look! Each layer is important. Each layer plays a part. Some are closer to the "skin" and others cover it all. Verse 14 tells us that love covers everything! It's the final garment that helps you make allowance for faults and forgive people that hurt you.

So are you "layered" in the things that matter to the Lord? Dress yourself properly and find yourself in perfect harmony with others and with your Creator!
