Don We Now our Kind Apparel

“…and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of its creator. … Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.” – Colossians 3:10, 12-14

When we turn from our old selves and don this “new self,” there must be a complete reversal of our lifestyles. There’s no room for sin in this life. Instead, we must be holy, compassionate, kind, humble, patient, forgiving, loving, and meek (a meek person is quiet and gentle, readily diminishes their own importance to uplift someone else’s; selfless).

Take some time to read over cf. Isa 29:19, Eph 1:4, Jas 5:11, Matt 18:22, 1 Cor 13. These may lead you to rabbit trails as to how to execute each of these attitudes in your life. Look up the other cross reference verses. Meditate. Pray. You’ll see the way.
