Writing to the Colossians, Paul instructed that as God’s chosen people, they were to clothe themselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. Today, too, Christians are to be different from the world and are to forgive others as the Lord forgave us. Alistair Begg reflects on what it will look like for us to wear the new clothes provided by Christ.
12Put on then, as God's chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, 13bearing 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. 14And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.
