Do All in Jesus' Name

Colossians 3:12-17 KJV
12 Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; 13 Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye. 14 And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness. 15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful. 16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. 17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.

We are to put on mercy, kindness, humbleness, meekness, longsuffering, forbearance, forgiveness, charity, peace and thankfulness. Dwell (live) in God's wisdom and teach that to others. Sing songs of praise to God and do all things in Christ's name. Follow His example, strive to live like Him and bet thankful for an example to live by.
