“The Garments of Our Home”
(Based on Colossians 3:12–17, The Message)
Leader: Chosen by God for this new life of love, dress in the wardrobe God picked out for you: compassion, kindness, humility, quiet strength, discipline.
Congregation: Be even–tempered, content with second place, quick to forgive an offense.
Leader: Forgive as quickly and completely as the Master forgave you.
Congregation: Regardless of what else we put on, we must wear love. It’s our basic, all–purpose garment. We should never be without it.
Leader: Let the peace of Christ keep you in tune with each other, in step with each other. And cultivate thankfulness.
Congregation: Let the Word of Christ—the message—have the run of our homes, allowing for plenty of room in our lives.
Leader: Sing, sing your hearts out to God! Let every detail in our lives—words or actions—be done in the name of the Master, Jesus, thanking God the Father every step of the way. Amen.
