"If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory." - Colossians 3:1-4

Colossians 3:12-17
12 Put on then, as God's chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, 13 bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. 14 And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.

Having put off our old selves and put on the new in Christ, how then do we proceed?  When the followers of Christ have put to death that which is worldly, turning form anger, wrath, malice, slander and obscene talk, what is it to live in the reality that “Christ is all, and in all.”?  Paul continues this week by showing us what the clothes look like. Christ clothes us in kindness, humility, meekness and patience but it is not without challenge. How do we bear with one another in community when sin yet ensnares and wounds.  What does it mean to forgive as we were forgiven? Join us as we worship and rejoice in the Lord! Come and hear what Paul has to say about the peace of Christ ruling in our hearts and put on display in community.
