Colossians 3:12 to 4:1.

Ch. 3 further describes what life as God’s chosen people looks like. These are beautiful verses, painting a picture of love, harmony, peace and thanksgiving as believers live and worship together. Again we see how practical the gospel is, resulting in transformed relationships at church, home, work, wherever. It’s easy to overlook where the power comes from, so note that we are “chosen, holy, dearly loved” (v. 12) and forgiven (v. 13). God’s doing, not ours! Let the peace of Christ (v. 15) and the word of Christ (v. 16) do their work as you give thanks!
