He Chose Us

We are loved by God.

And his desire is for us to be compassionate,

to be kind,December 14 2015 he chose us

to be humble,

and gentle,

and patient.

Paul tells us in Colossians 3 to bear with each other.

To forgive each other.

And, above all , to love one another in perfect unity.

We are called to be lovers of peace – to let the peace of Christ rule in our hearts.

What does that look like for me?

What does that look like for you?

To be ruled by peace.

Just imagining it lowers my blood pressure 🙂

What would our lives be like if we lived each day filled with gratitude?

What thoughts would fill our minds if the message of Christ ‘richly dwelt’ in us?

What if we could say that everything we do is done out of thankfulness for  what Jesus has done for us?

This is what growing more like Jesus looks like.

How are we doing?

We thank you for the power of your spirit living within us, Abba Father.
