What the BIBLE has been CONSISTENT about

 Colossians 3:12

King James Version

12 Put on therefore, 

as the elect of God, 

holy and beloved, 

bowels of mercies, 


humbleness of mind, 



There's a striking bunch of verses I featured three days ago on this meekness post.

I shared it, because GOD keeps commanding us to do it.

Every so often, you'd find it in the Bible.

A set of people God wants us to love -- in particular.

Here's what GOD has been commanding us to do:

Zechariah 7:8-10

King James Version

8 And the word of the Lord 

came unto Zechariah


9 Thus speaketh the Lord of hosts, 


Execute true judgment, 

and shew mercy and compassions 

every man to his brother:

10 And oppress not the widow, 

nor the fatherless, 

the stranger, 

nor the poor; 

and let none of you imagine evil 

against his brother 

in your heart.

We must search our own hearts, to see if we have love for each other.

Not just the romantic love, so loosely bandied about, causing many young to fornicate, and to defy their parents.

As well as causing many to commit abominations unto the Lord.

We need to take to heart those verses, for God's precise about who we must look after:

-- Every man.

-- The widow.

-- The fatherless.

-- The stranger.

-- The poor.

Only by being born again, can we understand God's instructions.

Only by being born again, can we delight in obeying God's will.

For His SPIRIT will surely teach us how.

SPIRIT, after all, is the teacher of all things JESUS.

John 14:26

King James Version

26 But the Comforter, 

which is the Holy Ghost, 

whom the Father will send in my name, 

he shall teach you all things, 

and bring all things to your remembrance, 

whatsoever I have said unto you.

Jesus taught us how to love God, and each other.

Matthew 22:37-40

King James Version

37 Jesus said unto him, 

Thou shalt love the Lord thy God 

with all thy heart, 

and with all thy soul, 

and with all thy mind.

38 This is the first 

and great commandment.

39 And the second is like unto it, 

Thou shalt love thy neighbour 

as thyself.

40 On these two commandments 

hang all the law 

and the prophets.

We must put on the "bond of perfectness".

Colossians 3:13-14

King James Version

13 Forbearing 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, 

which is the bond of perfectness.

We must let the PEACE of GOD rule in our hearts.

Colossians 3:15

King James Version

15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts

to the which also ye are called in one body; 

and be ye thankful.

We must let the word of CHRIST dwell in us.

Colossians 3:16

King James Version

16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you 

richly in all wisdom

teaching and admonishing one another 

in psalms and hymns 

and spiritual songs, 

singing with grace in your hearts 

to the Lord.

Lastly, we must do all in the NAME of the LORD JESUS.

Colossians 3:17

King James Version

17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, 

do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, 

giving thanks to God 

and the Father by him.
