And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful. Colossians 3:14-15
The verses before us today gives us so much assurance. The first verse, talks about charity as the bond of perfectness, makes me think of glue, which is a way to bond things together. And that is what true love is; it isn’t just love, which can be jealous and corrupt and selfish sometimes, but it is a pure kind of love… God’s love, which bonds everything together, and makes us part of each other, and part of God. Even though sometimes we feel oddly shaped and like we don’t fit in, it’s that bond that puts us all together in the puzzle and makes us all perfect and complete in Him.
The second verse is amazing as well. Let the peace of God rule in your hearts… wow. I think that so often we let something else rule in our hearts besides God and his peace. Our anger, or frustration, or loneliness, or desire, or sorrow, or despair… so many things fighting for supremacy in there… but if we take a step back and let God in, all of that either goes away, or falls into a manageable place.
Today, let’s accept some of the love and peace that God is offering to us, and then offer love and peace to the people around us as well.
I Declare: Today I declare that the love of God is poured on me without measure, I am bonded and rooted in God’s family. God’s peace rule my heart, I am not ruled by fear and anxiety. I have the liberty of the spirit, I am always thankful.
Ignite Thought: To be bonded in God’s love and Have His peace rule our hearts is the highest form of joy and life!
