Good morning people who wake up and make a choice what to put on
Colossians 3:12, 14 NIV Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience…And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
Imagine how different the world would be if the people of God woke up each morning and chose to clothe themselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience, and then over all of these, they put on love.
The foundation for putting these on is that we are holy and dearly loved by God. It is not about us being good. It is about being a child of our good and perfect Father. The fruit comes from the Holy Spirit but it must be put on by us.
The fact that this scripture uses the phrase ‘clothe yourselves’ and ‘put on’ tells me that it is our choice and it is possible. I need to believe this and I need to be more deliberate when I wake up.
What did you choose to put on this morning?
