Colossians 3 v 12-16 “Gospel Clothing”


Intro: Our new clothes are not out of reach



         1) The clothes of love (v12-14)


A choice of 2 towns to live in



Jesus’ fashion range called “Love”;


  • Compassion




  • Kindness




  • Humility




  • Gentleness



  • Patience



  • Forgiveness


“This is how we know what love is: Jesus laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters.” (1 Jn 3 v 16)


         2) The peace these clothes bring (v15-16)


Let the;

  • Peace of Christ



  • Message of Christ


How consumed are you with God’s word?



Conclusion: “Put on” and “Let the”



Colossians 3 v 12-16 “Gospel Clothing” Home Group Questions


1) Read verses 12-14. Think of the most difficult people and situations you have to deal with and talk through how putting on each of these pieces of clothes will affect that relationship.   


2) How does the fact that we already belong to God help us to bear the cost of relating to others in this sacrificial way?


3) Read verses 15-16. In CC Riverside, can you see us letting the peace of Christ rule and letting the message of Christ dwell richly? How can you personally help to make this happen more?
