Wednesday Message 2-22-17
12 As God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience. 13 Bear with one another and, if anyone has a complaint against another, forgive each other; just as the Lordhas forgiven you, so you also must forgive. 14 Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. 15 And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in the one body. And be thankful. 16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly; teach and admonish one another in all wisdom; and with gratitude in your hearts sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs to God.[c] 17 And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
Have you let God dress you today?
Wear the glasses of compassion… see others through God’s vision.
Wear a shirt of kindness… make sure there’s some symbol of your faith.
Wear some pants/skirt/kilt/shorts of humility… let God be the focus of your journey, not your self
Wear a sweater of meekness…. control the strength that God has given you and use it for God’s good.
Wear shoes of patience…. be patient with yourself in your steps, and be patient with others as they take their steps.
And wrap your whole self in LOVE….
Now, you are dressed by God, and ready to live a Godly life in Christ!
Peace in our journeys,
Pastor Steve Melde
