ALWAYS AN UPGRADE

READ:
Colossians 3:12-17


Put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering;...but above all things put on love.
-Colossians 3:12-14

THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
Psalm 100-102
1 Corinthians 1

When I’m about to leave the house sometimes my wife, Martie, stops me and says “You can’t go to the office dressed like that!” It’s usually something about the tie not marching the jacket or the colour of the slacks being out of sync with the sportcoat. Though being questioned about my fashion choices may feel like an affront to my good taste. I have realised that her correcting influence is always an upgrade.
Scripture often calls us to “put on” attitudes and actions that match our identity in Christ. Sometimes we are known by the cloth we wear, but we can make Jesus known by wearing attitudes and actions that can reveal His presence in our lives. The Apostle Paul advised us to set the fashion standard by modelling the wardrobe of Jesus’ compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, patience and forgiveness (Colossians 3:12). And he added “above all these things put on love….And let the peace of God rule in your hearts” (vv.14-15).
Clothing ourselves in Jesus’ likeness begins with spending time with Him say.”You can’t go out like that!” let Him lovingly take you back to the closet so He can clothe you with His likeness. It’s always an upgrade! - Joe Stowell
Lord help us to see ourselves the way You see us.
By your Spirit teach us to adorn our lives with the
attitudes and actions You have designed for us as
a public statement about our identity with You.


Clothing ourselves with Jesus’ attitudes and actions shows His presence to our lives.

JESUS IN YOUR BOAT

No doubt, life in a sense is like the sea. A characteristic of the sea is that storms of varying degrees arise, putting the lives of those sailing on it in jeopardy of being drowned. In Jesus’ Name, the storms of life will not be able to drown you, your family and your business. While literal storms are natural...More
