Transcript of Colossians 3:12-17
Dressed Up With Someplace to Go
It's a Lifestyle
A deeply felt sense of care for someone else.
An assesment of self that is in line with how God sees you and the Word describes you.
Dealing with situations so the force is primarily in the content of the communication and is appropriate for the need of the moment.
The gentle response to ongoing irritations and differences
It's a Choice
“And he arose and came to his father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and felt compassion, and ran and embraced him and kissed him.”
It is a deep sense of mercy for the condition of another that sees people as God sees them and then volitionally seeks to meet the specific needs of their lives.
A benevolent attitude toward others as an expression of nearness to them.
“4 But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, 5 he saved us”
It is beyond need but instead is the normal disposition toward everyone else.
“And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.”
It is a willingness to place all of you; your preferences, your talents, your money, your position, your respectability, and your time for the building up and service of others to help them move toward God.
2 Timothy 2:24-26
"24 And the Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome but kind to everyone, able to teach, patiently enduring evil, 25 correcting his opponents with gentleness. God may perhaps grant them repentance leading to a knowledge of the truth, 26 and they may come to their senses and escape from the snare of the devil, after being captured by him to do his will."
Dealing with difficult and sinful situations in a way that comes alongside to help rather than to destroy.
Patience is the willingness to hold back a just reaction toward someone that has wronged you for the sake of pursuing relational reconciliation and connection.
"Or do you presume on the riches of his kindness and forbearance and patience, not knowing that God’s kindness is meant to lead you to repentance?"
Compassionate hearts seek to meet the physical needs of others.
Kindness is the normal disposition toward others even when there are no needs.
Humility is a right view of yourself that dispels self-righteousness.
Meekness is the way we approach others to confront sin and handle disagreements.
Patience is the attitude we hold while a matter is unresolved.
