Wouldn’t that be great? Living a life clothed in compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. I have yet to master this skill but I try really hard to live up to it. God sent his son for me but I still live a stubborn and angered life as if that price was not enough. I need to swallow my pride and reflect Jesus throughout my days.
I believe that if we want to live the life presented to us in Colossians 3:12, we need to do some deep dissection people!
The word ‘clothe’ means to put on clothing. We all “put on clothing” every day. We do not just wake up clothed and ready to face the day. It takes time, effort, and some days all the energy we have in the early morning.
The same runs for our attitude. If we want to reflect Christ, it will take time, effort, and all the energy we have. When we become annoyed or frustrated, it will take all of our efforts. When we are tired, it will take all of our energy.
Colossians 3:12 is our ultimate goal when we interact with others. Our aim should be to show Christ’s love and joy to the faces of this world.
I want to be a compassionate, kind, humble, gentle, and patient person. I want people to be able to see Christ through me. I know that those traits will take time and effort but I believe they are totally worth it.
My prayer for you is that you will continue to seek Christ above all else and strive to live a life in harmony with Colossians 3:12.
