Why is it so hard for me to remember, to keep my perspective on what I really am?
"Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God." Colossians 3:1-3
I am a missionary.
I am a preacher.
I am a teacher.
I am a nurturer.
"Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity." Colossians 3:12-14
Clothe yourself with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.
Bear with each other.
Forgive one another.
Put on over everything else like a veil, LOVE.
I am a bride.
"Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him." Colossians 3:15-17
And be thankful.
Know that with out the message of Christ dwelling among you, you are hopeless.
Whatever you do.
Dishes. Organizing. Discipline. Schooling.
Do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus.
