What Do You Put On?

You’ve probably read Colossians 3:12 (NASB) before. Did you know that it describes you as a believer? “So, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.” Notice that you’re described with the attributes of Jesus. Actually, Paul tells you and I to put on something, and the Greek refers to sinking into a garment. However, you may feel you have to work at doing that. Recognize, though, that you already have what you need. You have the compassion of Jesus. You have His kindness, gentleness, patience, and humility because He lives in you.

The disconnect is when we aren’t activating what is in us and what we have. We sink into these garments when we choose to allow His Grace to manifest in your actions. It’s allowing His compassion to pour through you to someone else. You don’t have to be hesitant. You’re equipped and beloved. You’ll touch your world as you display His love and compassion through His kindness and gentleness.
