Colossians 3:12-15 (NLT)
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.
Imagine if... When you got dressed in the morning that you put on tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, patience and love as you do your clothes. What would your day look like? You would probably find yourself much more able to put on the peace that comes from Christ.
Now imagine if... Everyone clothed themselves in this same way. What a wonderful world it would be. Some might call it Heavenly?
It seems like we're all looking for answers these days. What if "the answer" to all our questions was simple and yet so profound that it would change our lives forever? Well, it is simple and it is profound. It's the Gospel (the Good News) of Jesus Christ.
John 3:16 (NLT) “For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.
God sent His Son to this world. Jesus born of a virgin lived a sinless life. Being obedient to the Father He went to cross as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of the world (you and me). He rose on the third day defeating death and the grave. After some time with His disciples He ascended to Heaven and then sent us the Holy Spirit as He had promised.
Jesus is "the answer!" His Word and the Holy Spirit will guide you to the other answers.
Clothing yourself with love starts with asking Jesus into your heart and asking for forgiveness. You can do that right now if you want. Or if you want, you can reach out to the Men of Iron and we would love to pray with you or perhaps answer some questions you may have.
God is Love, clothe yourself with Him today.
Lord Bless you and Clothe you! Peace be with you.
