									Put On the New Man
    Colossians 3.12-15
   (Ephesians 4.17-24)
       Ephesians 4.17-18
This I say, therefore, and testify in the
Lord, that you should no longer walk as
the rest of the Gentiles walk, in the futility
of their mind, having their understanding
darkened, being alienated from the life
of God, because of the ignorance that
is in them, because of the blindness of
their heart;
      Ephesians 4.19-21
who, being past feeling, have given
themselves over to lewdness, to work all
uncleanness with greediness. But you
have not so learned Christ, if indeed you
have heard Him and have been taught
by Him, as the truth is in Jesus:
      Ephesians 4.22-24
that you put off, concerning your former
conduct, the old man which grows
corrupt according to the deceitful lusts,
{23} and be renewed in the spirit of your
mind, {24} and that you put on the new
man which was created according to
God, in true righteousness and holiness.
     Colossians 3.12-13
Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and
beloved, put on tender mercies,
kindness, humility, meekness,
longsuffering; {13} bearing with one
another, and forgiving one another, if
anyone has a complaint against
another; even as Christ forgave you, so
you also must do.
     Colossians 3.14-15
But above all these things put on love,
which is the bond of perfection. {15} And
let the peace of God rule in your hearts,
to which also you were called in one
body; and be thankful.
        Colossians 3.12
Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and
beloved, put on:
             Tender Mercies
             Kindness
             Humility
             Meekness
             Longsuffering
       Tender Mercies
Compassionate heart

But whoever has this world's goods, and
sees his brother in need, and shuts up
his heart from him, how does the love
of God abide in him? {18} My little
children, let us not love in word or in
tongue, but in deed and in truth.
                      (1 John 3:17-18 NKJV)
           Kindness

humbled, and he who humbles
himself will be exalted.”
                     (Mat 23:12 NKJV)
            Meekness
Strength and courage under control
coupled with kindness, gentleness &
humility

Take my yoke upon you, and learn of
me; for I am meek and lowly in heart:
and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
{30} For my yoke is easy, and my
burden is light.       (Mat 11:29-30 KJV)
