• “How very narrow is the gate that leads to a life in God! (Mt 7:14) How little one must be to pass through it, it being nothing else but death to self! But when we have passed through it, what enlargement do we find! David said, ‘He brought me forth also in a large place’ (Ps. 18:19). And it was through humiliation and abasement that he was brought there.” – from Madame Guyon’s autobiography Ch. 22

Put on Love by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 06/10/11

Put on Love

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: I would guess that one of the first things you did this morning was pick out your clothes and get dressed. But did you remember to put on love?

No, that’s not a new perfume. It’s one of the characteristics Paul mentions in Colossians 3, where he says, “Clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience” (v. 12).

Wow! Can you imagine what our homes and workplaces would be like if each of us consciously put on those five qualities every morning?

The passage goes on to say, “Above all these put on love which binds everything together in perfect harmony.” Love is what pulls the whole outfit together.

How much time do you spend getting dressed in the morning? And how much time do you spend putting on compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, patience, and above all—love?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
