Put On, Put Off, Put Up, Put Out

Put On, Put Off, Put Up, Put Out

It is difficult to go through any situation when we see the enemy trying to bring division. We do not war against flesh and blood, and those involved don’t always perceive what is happening spiritually. Regardless of others, we handle situations discerning the real war and walking in love.

Battles are won by receiving love, forgiveness and acceptance from the Lord—and praying the same for others. Rejection feeds insecurities, increases fears, and hinders confidence. The release of others into the hand of the Lord is attained by trusting the Lord with the outcome. We forgive others even if they don’t forgive us. Our love is unconditional. We pray for the Lord to reveal to us what healing we need in our own hearts, and what thoughts need to be taken captive. We ask Him for His ability to forbear (put up with) one another. By faith, we put on Christ, put off the old man; put up with one another and in doing so put out all the fires hindering the fire of the Holy Spirit.

As the elect of God, we elect to put on love, the bond of perfection. It bonds and knits together all the interaction that takes place between one another. Our pursuit of peace and unity is unceasing, from glory to glory!

Colossians 3:12-14 Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if one has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection.
