God instructed ALL followers of Jesus Christ, through Paul, to commit ourselves to prayer, to pray that God may open doors for the message of the mystery of Christ, and to pray for us to share it clearly. These instructions are from our Heavenly Father’s desire to communicate with us and for others to know His love for the world.
We are called to live differently as followers of Jesus! This passage provides instructions on the roles and functions for different members within the family. The one over-arching objective is to live for our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ regardless of our different roles.
We are now royalty, through Jesus, living in the Kingdom of God. Let's clothe ourselves with outfits deserving of people who are holy, chosen, and dearly loved. These are the outfits of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, patience, tolerance, forgiveness, love, peace, and thankfulness.
