Colossians 3:12-17

12 Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. 13 Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. 14 And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. 15 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. 16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God. 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 started out with a bang for me… As God’s CHOSEN people, holy & dearly loved!!! WOW! Just WOW!!

    Then I noticed the first word, “Therefore.”

    BECAUSE I am chosen, this is how I should live! I need to REPRESENT!

    Represent means: to speak, act or be present officially for another person.

    This passage gives specific guidelines of how to represent Him well… In ALL that I do or say!

      For me v14 was key – And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.

      Love (God’s love not the worlds’ version of it) when it’s ruling in our hearts, unifies, gives us peace, helps us to be thankful – makes our words and deeds glorify the Father.
