Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; bearing with one another, and forgiving one another.
Colossians 3:12-13

Recommended Reading: Ephesians 4:32

David Jeremiah Devotional 17 August 2022 MESSAGE

In the first century, getting dressed was a bit simpler for the average person than it is for us today. The apostle Paul likely wore a knee-length tunic, perhaps a kind of undergarment, a robe or cloak, and sandals for his feet—and maybe a belt around his waist. Still, that small number of items was enough to stimulate his thinking when it came to describing the Christian’s spiritual wardrobe.

In Colossians 3:12-14, Paul described at least eight different articles of spiritual clothing that the Christian should “put on” daily: tender mercies (compassion), kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering, patience, forgiveness, and love which is “the bond of perfection” (that which ties the others together in unity). In a world where many people strive to be fashion forward, imagine the impact of a person dressed in Paul’s eight spiritual qualities. Which would change the world more—being dressed in the latest fashions or being dressed in the likeness of Christ?

As you get dressed each morning, imagine putting on love and the other traits Paul mentions. Being dressed in Christlikeness will set you apart in the world.

To be much like Christ, be much with Christ.
