Bible: Colossians 3:10-16

3:10 and have been clothed with the new man 1  that is being renewed in knowledge according to the image of the one who created it. 3:11 Here there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave 2  or free, but Christ is all and in all.

Exhortation to Unity and Love

3:12 Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with a heart of mercy, 3  kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience, 3:13 bearing with one another and forgiving 4  one another, if someone happens to have 5  a complaint against anyone else. Just as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also forgive others. 6  3:14 And to all these 7  virtues 8  add 9  love, which is the perfect bond. 10  3:15 Let the peace of Christ be in control in your heart (for you were in fact called as one body 11  to this peace), and be thankful. 3:16 Let the word of Christ 12  dwell in you richly, teaching and exhorting one another with all wisdom, singing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, all with grace 13  in your hearts to God.
