“So, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience;
bearing with one another, and forgiving each other, whoever has a complaint against anyone; just as the Lord forgave you, so also should you.”
Colossians 3:12-13 (NASB)
Some people search all their life for significance. If only I was successful. Perhaps a scholar or a celebrity. If I had fame and fortune, everything would be perfect. Yet all this pales in comparison to what you and I already have. In today’s passage, Paul wrote that you were chosen by God to be holy and loved by Him. God chose you. No random coincidence, God knew you from the beginning of time and He has called you to be His ambassador of love in this world. He has chosen to give you a new heart of compassion. This new heart changes everything. With it you can see the whole world differently. Now you have the power to be all God wants you to be. With your heart of compassion you can be kind, humble, gentle and patient. Because of God’s love you can now bear with the shortcomings of others and truly forgive them. Paul said it best, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” What God has called, He will empower. So today, rise up and recognize your calling. God has chosen you to be His ambassador of love.
Dear Father, thank You for choosing me to be Your ambassador of love. Thank You for my new heart of compassion. Help me today to really know what this means. To really know You and the power of Your Holy Spirit. Come Lord, fill me, guide me, live through me today. I pray in Jesus’ name.
