What are you Wearing?
Today, style and fashion are very important. When one wears the latest trends, he is considered with the times. Daily, men and women get up and dress themselves according to their lifestyle and likes. They dress in order to show others what they think of themselves and to get a response from those who see them – rather good or bad.
In addition, many others dress according to their professions. You can know where they are employed by their uniforms. Waiters, waitresses, doctors, nurses, police officers, and the like all wear uniforms so that they are quickly identified.
And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. Eph 4:24 (KJV)
Since clothing is an important part of life, the Christian has to understand that he also must be properly dressed. We have stated that certain professions have particular uniforms for easy identification. The same holds true for Christianity. The dress code is not revealed in outer clothing, but in the “spiritual” garments on the inside of an individual; that is, within one’s character.
Paul reminded his readers to put off the old man (meaning things of the flesh that did not please God) and put on the new man, which is in the image of Christ. He reveals that the Christian is to treat their inner selves like a body that needs to be dressed. So, the question on today is “What are You Wearing?” Does your character make you easily identifiable as a Christian? If not, you need to change your clothes and put on love, joy, peace, humility, and the like.
Prayer of the Week:
“I thank you that you have provided me with what I need for spiritual growth and success. Help me as I strive to put on the new man. Amen”
