Thought for the day

Psalm 27:8 & Col 3:1

If the desire of David to seek God’s face is fulfilled in Jesus, in whom “we see the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ”, then Paul’s exhortation in Col 3:1 can be understood in that light:
“Seek those things that are above where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God….”
We are urged to put off the old man’s rags (sexual immorality, lying etc) and to put on the new man’s dress. The new man is Christ and we are to don His virtues: compassion, love, forgiveness, peace etc. Godly qualities are ours in Christ, who is God become Man, God with skin on His face and shoes on His feet.
