NEW CLOTHES


Colossians 3:12


"Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience." NIV


"Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering." KJV


A lot can be revealed about us by the clothes we wear. We tend to judge people and place them into groups by what they are wearing. There is always a choice about what we wear in our inner selves, like our attitudes, thoughts, and demeanors. We do wear these things every day and every hour. We will be identified as belonging to the Bride of Christ if we are wearing the holy garments of the Spirit. We wear them because we belong to Him and He gave us these new clothes at a great price so that our shame would be seen no more.


Heavenly Father, there is nothing we can give you to repay the wonderful gifts you have freely given us. We ask you for your grace and mercy to wear the clothes of the Holy Spirit so that others will be drawn to our Lord Jesus Christ. In His name we pray, Amen.

Thank you Bobbie for reminding us all about Jesus when He was walking the earth. God wants all His children to emulate His Son by being clothed with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. I pray daily to our Lord to check my heart for anything that would make any of these attributes diminish in anyway. I am working hard with the Lord to improve my patience. Blessings, Lloyd
