Living as Those Made Alive in Christ
Colossians 3:12-14 — Living as Those Made Alive in Christ
Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
Questions for Reflection
After reading the scripture a few times, close your eyes and think of your morning routine. Imagine getting dressed and ready in the morning and picture yourself slowly “putting on” these virtues described in the passage as different items of clothing, meditating on each individual word. How does it feel?
Why might Paul say that love is what binds all other things together?
