3:8 Wrath - Is lasting anger. Filthy discourse - And was there need to warn even these saints of God against so gross and palpable a sin as this? O what is man, till perfect love casts out both fear and sin.

    COLOSSIANS 3:1 if you then be risen with CHRIST seek those things which are above where CHRIST sitteth on the right hand of GOD --3:2-- set your affection on things above not on things on the earth --3:3-- for you are dead and your life is hid with CHRIST in GOD --3:4 when CHRIST who is our life shall appear then shall you also appear with HIM in glory

    "...above all these things put on charity,3:14" "Charity...beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. Charity never faileth." 1Cor.13:4-8; "3:14 ...the bond of perfectness", capsules the essence of The Godhead and the Word; God is Love. Love sent His Son to Calvary that we may have eternal life, because of this Love came the Comforter--the Spirit of Truth.

    God gave me Col. 3 a few years back. While walking and talking to God He brought up Col. 3. I broke down crying because I was very depressed and needed strengeth and encouragement. Because of God's grace, love and mercy I'm still here. I think, meditate and apply Col. 3 nearly every day since that time. All because of the power of the Holy Spirit am I able to live the Christian life. Praise God ..

    Christ died for us and if we want to we can invite Him into out hearts for salvation. Someone of us ride in our cars to church. Some have to walk and others hitch a ride with someone. We are all going to the same place church. So maybe our comfort zone has been invaded and the hairs on our neck stands up. But if itt's only a change of sound and not doctrine we need to thank God others are coming.
