Chosen, holy, loved // 02-07-18

“Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.” Colossians‬ ‭3:12‬ ‭NLT‬‬

This is our identity as Christians: chosen, holy and loved! Being sure of that status, and having the assurance and confidence that it brings when I know that God is for me, enables me to live graciously and generously towards others. Choosing mercy over judgement, kindness over revenge, humility over pride, gentleness over hostility and patience over stress leads to a peace filled life. Lord, save me from hard heartedness, help me to be more like You this week, Amen 😊
