Clothe yourselves // 14-09-18

“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.” Colossians‬ ‭3:12-13‬ ‭NLT‬‬

That all sounds great when we’re on the receiving end of it, but when we actually have to do it, we’ll that’s another thing altogether! Lord, I want to be holy (blessed, set apart for God’s purposes) so help me to put on the right clothes! Help me not to wear offence or anger or bitterness or to hold on to unforgiveness! I want to be like You, to live free in Your love and to be a carrier of it. Thank You for the mercy and kindness and gentleness and patience You have shown to me, Amen 🙏🏼
