COLOSSIANS 3 11- 28-29- 2017

Tuesday 11-28-2017 Colossians 3  12-13  QT

12 So, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience;13 bearing with one another, and forgiving each other, whoever has a complaint against anyone; just as the Lord forgave you, so also should you.

Terry, forgive not avoid.

Wednesday 11-29-2017 Colossians 3  14-17  QT

14 Beyond all these things put on love, which is the perfect bond of unity. 15 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful. 16 Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God. 17 Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father.

Terry,

Unity is based on LOVE not agreement – can you LOVE and yet hold a different opinion?

Be thankful for My peace and be thankful, to Me, for being a member of “My Church”; along with others you may disagree with.

Listen to Me with Ears of Faith to give or receive:

         Teaching (even if you’re in disagreement)

         Admonishment (even if you’re misunderstood)

         Together with “My Church” express with music, a mutual admiration toward Father, Son and Spirit.

Stay in harmony with Our Personal intimacy, with Each Other, as you live in your community:

Give Verbal Expressions of love in your teaching, admonition, praise and thankfulness

Do Visible Actions of love, service, support, acceptance, and actions that communicate you value those I have chosen, for you and I to serve.

Colossians 3 – 11- 26-27- 2017

Sunday 11-26-2017 Colossians 3  1-4  QT

1 Therefore if you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth. For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, is revealed, then you also will be revealed with Him in glory.

Terry, it is not when you make yourself holy, or when you change, you have already been made holy and have already been changed.  I Am, your Life.  Seek Me through all the enhancers I have provided for you.

Monday 11-27-2017 Colossians 3  5-11  QT

Therefore consider the members of your earthly body as dead to immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and greed, which amounts to idolatry. For it is because of these things that the wrath of God will come upon the sons of disobedience, and in them you also once walked, when you were living in them. But now you also, put them all aside: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and abusive speech from your mouth. Do not lie to one another, since you laid aside the old self with its evil practices, 10 and have put on the new self who is being renewed to a true knowledge according to the image of the One who created him— 11 a renewal in which there is no distinction between Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave and freeman, but Christ is all, and in all.

Terry, you are “NEW” because you are now One with Me.  Do not let the flesh have free reign with your thoughts for your thoughts will always influence your attitude and actions.  Because your “NEW”, you have My Life and power to control the flesh and all it’s passions.  Remember to give into the flesh is idolatry.  Go back and read verses 1-4; so let Us have a great day.
