677. Put on the new spiritual man that you are
Put on the new spiritual man that you are – Colossians 3:8-14
8 But now ye also put off (like a tee shirt) all these; anger (anger with revenge), wrath (the causel passion that could lead to wrath) , malice (every form of evil), blasphemy (slander), filthy communication (the license of the ungoverned tongue, obscene language) out of your mouth.
9 Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man (mans nature) with his deeds;
10 And have put on (like a tee shirt) the new man (new spiritual nature), which is renewed (daily acquiring strength) in knowledge (epignosis: a true and personal relationship with an object where you hear from that object and heed it’s advice) after (in parallel motion with) the image (pattern) of him that created him:
11 Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.
12 Put on (like a tee shirt) therefore, as the elect (chosen) of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies (subjective compassion), kindness (sweetness of disposition input of ingratitude), humbleness (modesty) of mind, meekness (enduring all things with an even temper), longsuffering;
13 Forbearing (holding up) 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 (love), which is the bond of perfectness.
Put on the new spiritual man that you are
