Put on, those chosen by God, compassions, kindness, humility, meekness and patience. Bear with one another, forgiving as the Lord forgives.
How do we specifically put these evils to death and put on the new self?
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly...
Is God's Word at home in my heart? Do I take advantage of the word preached and taught? Do I sing God's Word or listen to praise and worship music? Do I thank God for his written word, meditating and memorizing it? And can I say...
Your words were found, and I ate them,
and your words became to me a joy
and the delight of my heart,
for I am called by your name,
O Lord, God of hosts.
