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 one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave You. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. ~ Colossians 3:12-14
Compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, patience, forgiveness and love - these are the attributes that those looking on should see in us as Christ followers. These are the character traits that Jesus is asking each of us to allow Him to bring forth in our lives so that others will be drawn to Him. When these traits are evident in our lives than others will want the life we have in Jesus as well.
