Colossians 3:10-14

Text Overview: Paul encourages Christians (@ Colosse) to "put on" Christ-like virtues and to "put up with" the shortcomings of others in love.

*put on = array ourselves; to clothe with; to adorn oneself

*put up with = to bear patiently in love; forbearance; allowing room to grow/mature

1. DO I MAKE ALLOWANCES 4 OTHERS AS JESUS DID/DOES 4 ME?

2. DO I EXPECT FROM OTHERS MORE THAN GOD REQUIRES OF ME?

3. GOD'S LONGSUFFERANCE (w/ US) SHOULD GROW OUR PATIENCE (w/ OTHERS).

4. BABIES MUST CRAWL B4 WALKING - SO MUST OTHERS.

Sermon Moral: If GOD sent grace to follow/keep/deliver us from our mess, we must patiently love and trust HIM to do the same 4 others.
