LIKE FINE CRYSTAL
Colossians 3:12 Therefore as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
The Scene: A fine crystal vase: representing God’s people, the Church; the vine and leaves etched into the vase represent Jesus. He is the vine, we, God’s people, are the branches.
Instructions for the caring of fine crystal: wash gently by hand. Include using a soft cloth, warm mild soapy water; use a soft brush, to clean gently. Air dry naturally; this will insure the crystal’s life will be extended looking beautiful.
Like a fine piece of crystal, Christians are to treat each other gently and with kindness.
John 15:5 “I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit, apart from me you can do nothing.”
1 Thessalonians 2:7 but we were gentle among you, like a mother caring for her little children. (The Apostle Paul speaking to the Church).
Matthew 11:29 “Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
