Leters From God–Book of Colossians 3:12-17

*********************************************************************************

My child, as I have said in the last two letters, You were spiritually dead in trespasses and sin, but you have been born of My Spirit and are now spiritually alive in connection with Christ, and are to live your life differently.  Put off the characteristics of the old life in the flesh and put on the characteristics of the new life in the Spirit.  This life in the Spirit will manifest itself in acts of mercy and kindness, and in an attitude of humbleness, meekness, and longsuffering.  You will be enabled to endure the faults, thoughtlessness, insults and injuries of others and forgive them.  Even as Christ forgave you so you are to forgive others.  Above all, manifest my love which is shed abroad in your heart by My Spirit, which is the bond of perfectness.  Let My peace rule and have control in your heart to which you are also called in the one spiritual body of Christ; and be thankful.  As My children you are to let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching, warning and correcting one another in psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, singing unto Me with My grace in your hearts.  Colossians 3:12-17
