LOVED AND CHOSEN BY GOD

Paul reminds us of our identity in Jesus and how that identity should shape our behavior and attitudes.



Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering, Colossians 3:12



Paul begins by addressing us as the elect of God, holy and beloved. This is a powerful affirmation of our standing before God. 



God chooses us and sets us apart as holy and dearly loved. This changes the way we see ourselves and how we interact with others. 



Knowing that God loves and chooses us should fill us with confidence and security.



Paul then instructs us to adopt tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, and longsuffering, which reflect the character of Jesus. 



As Believers, we are called to reflect these virtues in our lives intentionally. It is not only about trying to be nice; it is about allowing the Holy Spirit to transform our hearts so that these qualities become natural expressions of who we are in Jesus.



Imagine a life where tender mercies and kindness flow effortlessly from you, humility and meekness characterize your interactions, and you exhibit patience even in challenging circumstances. 



This is the life that God is calling you to, a life that mirrors the compassion and grace of Jesus.



Take a moment to reflect on how you can live out these virtues today. It could be showing compassion to someone in need, extending forgiveness to someone who has wronged you, or speaking with gentleness and humility in a difficult conversation.


Do you need Prayer? We are here to pray with you.



Heavenly Father, thank You for choosing us and loving us unconditionally. Please help us to live out our identity as your beloved children by clothing ourselves with tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience. Transform our hearts so that these virtues become second nature to us. May our lives reflect your love and grace to everyone we encounter today. In the name of Jesus, we pray, Amen.


This Is The Life That God Is Calling You To, a Life That Mirrors The Compassion And Grace Of Jesus.
