SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 09/23/15- “Don’t Be A ‘Put On,’ But ‘Put On,’ All Of These Attributes!” (Colossians 3:12)
Premise Question: Did Papa God choose us because we are a righteous, holy and pure people, or did He choose us because He loves us and desires that we become a righteous, holy and pure people, with His divine help and through His gracious provision of His Son, our redeeming LORD and Savior, Jesus Christ?
“Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.” (Colossians 3:12 NLT)
Therefore, since you’ve been divinely selected, because of The LORD God Almighty being favorably inclined towards you, to be one of His very own devout and cherished family members, of The Company of The Redeemed; you must make sure you are always clad appropriately, with these vitally important attributes, wearing them at all times, for all to see and personally experience. Now, regarding all of these attributes, don’t just be a “put on,” but actually put them on! Put on compassion, being moved to action, with sympathy, becoming empathetic towards others plight, by doing something that will really offer them the help needed, in order to alleviate their condition. Put on kindness, exhibiting kind benevolent favor, that’s thoughtful, helpful and cordial. Put on humility, not elevating yourself, by thinking you are superior or above others. Put on gentleness, always displaying a meek, mild and calm disposition and manner towards others. And finally, put on patience, by showing great restraint and self-control, choosing to learn and train yourself not to be reactionary, but responsive, not hot headed, but even tempered, persistent, long suffering and that, without any grumbling or complaint. (Colossians 3:12 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Oh what joy and pure delight, with an absolute certitude and a wholehearted gratitude, that’s full of exuberant rejoicing and thoughtful thanksgiving, being lifted up continually unto Papa God, His Son and The Holy Spirit, who is The King Eternal, The LORD of all, The One True and Faithful Sovereign LORD God Almighty, The Maker of Heaven and earth and everything therein, The One who comforts, heals and restores, forgives and renews, and The One who chooses and loves and gives us an abundant new life, and that, forevermore. He is The One who, with His divine enabling, asks us to clothe ourselves, each and everyday, with His divine, yet quite practical, as well as, being extremely beneficial, attributes of The LORD. He greatly desires that we be very tenderhearted, showing mercy and compassion, with great affection and benevolence, towards others. Papa God wants us to be kind to one another and others, being gracious, showing favor and generosity towards others. It is of the utmost importance that we clothe ourselves in humility, walking and comporting ourselves in lowliness and exhibiting meekness towards others. Our attitude and approach towards others, should always be characterized as being gentle, amiable and with much caring and real concern. And finally, we must exhibit the divine and unique quality of being patient, having a huge reservoir, full to overflowing, of patience, calmness, steady composure, long suffering and forbearance. So, don’t be a “Put On,” but, “Put On” all the attributes of The LORD! Blessings…
