Good morning everyone,
I am reading the New Living Translation and find it very helpful in understanding what God is saying to us.
Here is Colossians 3 -12 – 14
Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves
with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.
Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you.
Remember the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others.
Above all, clothe yourselves with love which binds us all together in perfect harmony.
17 – And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus,
giving thanks through him to God the Father.
Each morning we get ready for the day by getting washed and dressed,
putting on clean clothes, and shoes.
This is an easy way to remember to put on Christ. You are very important
to the world of people, who are not yet aware of who God is
and how much he loves us. If we were living in the time of Christ
we would be wearing the same type of robes he wore.
Now we wear our armor of God.Esps. 6 11-17
The motto of the Boy Scouts and Girl Guides is: Be prepared.
Prepare your day with prayer, and song, talk to Jesus, and he will guide your heart
and mind for all you have to do, through the power of the Holy Spirit.
Be blessed, give and it will be given to you.
It is more blessed to give than receive.
I hope this encourages you to live in excellence,
growing in faith and trust. God is so gracious and kind.
Now you are called His friends.
Be a good friend and neighbor today.
In His peace, your sister in Christ.
