I am in the books of Colossians today. Not the first time I read this, but just like any other book in the bible, it always brings me fresh instruction and wisdom from God.
Let me share:
And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please Him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and joyfully giving thanks to the Father....
So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.
Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.
But now you must rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips. Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices and out on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator.
...... clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against once another. Forgive as the Lord forgive you. And over all this virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
Colossians 3: 17
And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and Father through him.
Tomorrow, I am going to share verses from the same book on rules for christian household.
May all of us be blessed and empowered today to do the will of God! We ask this through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who reigns and lives forever and ever.
