Colossians 3:12-14 Since God chose you to be the holy people He loves, you must clothe yourselves with tender hearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others. Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in unity.
Are you aware that God ______________ you and that He has made you ______________?
1 John 4:8-10 Anyone who does not love does not know God, for God is love. God showed how much He loved us by sending His one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him. This is real love – not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.
To be holy is to be _________________ from this world and to be ________________ for God.
1 Peter 1:15-16 Now you must be holy in everything you do, just as God who chose you is holy. For the Scriptures say, ” You must be holy, because I am holy.”
Lev 19:2 Jesus said, “My kingdom is Not Of This World!”
As you have been ________________, so you are in _________________ with others through the same love.
John 13:34-35 ” Love each other: Just as I have loved you, you should love each other. Your love for one another will prove that you are My disciples.”
For those of you who missed it…

A Distinct Class
Colossians 3:1, 11 Since you have been raised to new life with Christ, set your sights on the realities of heaven… In this new life, it doesn’t matter if you are a Jew or Gentile, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbarian, uncivilized, slave or free. Christ is all that matters, and He lives in all of us.
Life with Christ begins with a classy _______________.
Romans 12:2 (NLT) Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.
Classy personalities become less ____________ conscious.
Galatians 3:28 There is no longer Jew or Gentile, slave or free, male or female. For you are all one in Christ Jesus.
When Christ lives in us, the we are ___________________ His.
1 Corinthians 12:12-13 The human body has many parts, but the many parts make up one whole body. So it is with the body of Christ. Some of us are Jews, some are Gentiles, some are slaves, and some are free. But we have been baptized into one body by one Spirit, and we all share the same Spirit.
