Garments

Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Colossians 3:12

God give to us a lovely description of His choice in clothing for our souls. Everyone who reads this must realize that these are not the traits of a political party, club, school, or any other body of people except those who place themselves in the body of Christ.

That is not to say that many people could not display some of these traits, but to really live them, to let them become part of you and you to become part of them it will take a lot more than desire, practice, and good training; it will take being part of the family of God and allowing Him to live through you. I promise you that is not easy. While it is simple to desire these and very clear of how to be a believer and follower of Jesus, it is even a deeper struggle to move over and let Him and His will and His way live through you…

These are qualities that all of us should have and display. You can just imagine how beautiful our world would be if those who are Christians would dress in these garments of character. See how it would change your office, the team you work with, and the street on which you live? We cannot purchase these in a store; we must acquire them from our Lord. They are His gifts to His children as we become deeper and deeper involved in His Word, Way, and Will.
