Colossians 3:12-17

Just a quick post to share with you a wonderful passage of scripture that offers guidance about how we should live our lives. This New Testament passage, written by Paul in his letter to the Colossians, seems to convey the heart of the gospel message that Jesus preached. It also sets an example for how we should behave in our church communities.

12
Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering;
13
bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do.
14
But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection.
15
And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful.
16
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
17
And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.
