VERNA’S DAILY DEVOTIONAL

COLOSSIANS 3:12

Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering

 

 

PAUL IS TEACHING HIS PEOPLE TO PUT TO DEATH ALL CARNAL URGES.

CARNAL, EVIL URGES, DESIRES, & BEHAVIOURS ARE TO BE REPLACED WITH GODLY ATTRIBUTES. WE ARE TO TREAT ONE ANOTHER WITH TENDER MERCY, KINDNESS, & PATIENCE, FROM AN ATTITUDE OF HUMILITY, MEEKNESS, & PATIENCE, WITHOUT COMPLAINING.

IT REQUIRES THE LOVE OF CHRIST IN OUR HEARTS TO TREAT OTHERS IN WAYS THAT DO NOT COME NATURALLY,ESPECIALLY THOSE WHO ARE DEMANDING, AGGRAVATING, PERHAPS EVEN HATEFUL.

AND IN THESE TEACHINGS, PAUL IS NOT REFERRING ONLY THOSE WHO ARE EASY TO LOVE. JUST LIKE JESUS/YESHUA, TEACHING HIS DISCIPLES TO LOVE THEIR ENEMIES & LOVE THOSE WHO PERSECUTE US, THIS IS WHAT PAUL IS TALKING ABOUT.

MAY WE WALK IN THESE TEACHINGS FROM THE WORD OF GOD.
