My One Word Transformation

Colossians 3: 12

12Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. 13Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others. 14Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony. 15And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful.

16Let the message about Christ, in all its richness, fill your lives.

 

Ephesians 3:14

14When I think of all this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father

,e 15the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth.f 16I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. 17Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. 18And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. 19May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.

Collossians 3:12

12Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. 13Make allowance for each other’s faults,

 

and forgive anyone who offends you.

 

Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others.

 14Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony.

 

“Clothe yourselves with love” = To put on your identity as one Beloved by God

 

God’s Love is: Transformational

John 10:9

9Yes, I am the gate. Those who come in through me will be saved.b They will come and go freely and will find good pastures. 10The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.

 

It’s never your dysfunction that keeps God from using you – It’s how you respond to your dysfunction that does.
