Set Apart

by Sharman J. Monroe

So, as God’s own chosen people, who are holy [set apart, sanctified for His purpose] and well-beloved [by God Himself], put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience [which has the power to endure whatever injustice or unpleasantness comes, with good temper]. Colossians 3:12 (AMP)

Yeah, I know the world is crazy today. People are quick to react, in a bad way. They say and do things designed to incite hate and division. They curse at each other at the drop of a hat. They abuse, assault and kill each other simply because of differences in sex, appearance, thoughts and ideals.

But you are not of this world. You are set apart. Your behavior should be a reflection of Who I Am. I freely forgive your sins all day, every day simply because you ask. I am freely patient with you while you decide to whether or not to do something I asked you to do. I am freely gentle with you when I correct you. I freely give you my Peace which helps you endure all the craziness.

BTW: all the craziness is rooted in some kind of fear. I didn’t give you the spirit of any kind of fear.

Have an awesome day!
