“Put On” ( Colossians 3:12, ASV ) by Carley Evans

Did you know you can get dressed up as a Christian? You can put on your neatly pressed, fully cleaned heart like a garment especially tailored for you!

“Put on therefore, as God’s elect, holy and beloved, a heart of compassion, kindness, lowliness, meekness, long-suffering;”

The heart you put on is not like your own human heart. Rather your tailored heart is like Christ’s — “a heart of compassion, kindness, lowliness, meekness and long-suffering.” Christ’s heart makes you “God’s elect, holy and beloved.”

    That is an excellent point…when we put on Christ’s righteousness, we put on His “heart of compassion, kindness, lowliness, meekness, long-suffering;” A lot to think about there – because His heart becomes our heart if we belong to Him.
