“The law tells me how crooked l am. Grace comes along and straightens me out.”D. L. Moody

“And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.”
Colossians 3:17 

Because of grace, which Christ gives freely, these are the characteristics we, the receiver, should have:

Kindness, humility, meekness, forgiving one another, but above all these things, putting on love.

These are some characteristics the elect of God put on for all to see.

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, and the peace of God rule over your hearts.

Paul wrote this in a letter to the people of Colosse while in prison, 60 AD.

How those words ring true today for our benefit and enrichment.

So thankful for the life of Paul.
