And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
Colossians 3:14 (NIV)
I would start by saying what an amazing privilege it is to be a new Creation!
An outstanding of shortcoming of our lives today as Christians is lack of Love. Paul tells us to “over all” put on Love, which is the perfect bond of unity, a commandment of God. As Christians this is the Characteristic we all should be known above all else, (In Corinthians 13: 1-3) all these experiences, all these abilities are empty without Love being present.
When Love is at the center of our lives, it characterizes every aspect of our lives, our attitudes, our relationships, our interactions with others. As followers of Jesus Christ, we are called to Love like our Lord Jesus Christ. It is through the Love of our God that allowed us to become children of God. It is the Love of God that compels us to obedience of His law, and that same Love of God should flow through us with perfect unity.
Let us ask ourselves this question today, How are we known by others? Let us ask our Heavenly Father to help us to gain the maturity in how to Love and receive Love. He will even help us to see others the way He sees them.
