Colossians 3: 12-17
This Sunday Bella will be speaking about thankfulness in worship, from Colossians. Here are some questions you might like to consider whilst reflecting on the scripture;
1) Who are the people in your life that you admire for their attitude of thankfulness? How have they impacted you and the community they live in?
2) What strikes you in our passage in relation to thankfulness?
3) What are you grateful for and how do you express your gratefulness to God and others? What helps you to cultivate thankfulness in this particular season?
12 Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. 13 Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. 14 And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
15 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. 16 Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. 17 And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
