bring it on [+] Monday E-Devotion

There are some things in life that you have to allow to happen while there are others that you can not stop and can not control.  Those things that we can control often get out of control really easy as we allow them to get bigger or as we leave them alone or push them away.
 
As I begin this week, there are some verses that have been on my heart in big ways.  Lets take a look...but here is the over shadowing thought.  We have to ask God to "bring it on".  To bring the right stuff into our lives.  Remind us to allow these things to stick close to us and be real.  We have a choice, and here they are:
 
from Colosians 3 (nlt)
 
13  Make allowance for each other's faults, and forgive...
 
14  Above all, clothe yourselves with love...
 
15  And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts.
 
16  Let the message about Christ, in all its richness, fill your lives...
 
17  And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus...
 
How do we do that?  How do we ask God to "bring it on"?  Keep reading from the same passage:
 
2  Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth.

5  So put to death the sinful, earthly things lurking within you...

10  Put on your new nature, and be renewed as you learn to know your Creator and become like him.

That makes sense!
