Strike a pose in this …
Other than hitting the snooze button once too often, a common reason for people running late for work is spending too much time in front of the closet trying to decide what to wear.
Clothes are important to us, hence the multi-billion dollar fashion industry. Many of us are very concerned (if not too concerned) about what we put on and how we present ourselves to the world.
At least, regarding how we look externally.
But how much time do you spend caring for what you look like spiritually?
“And all who have been united with Christ in baptism have put on Christ, like putting on new clothes,” Galatians 3:27.
“Instead, clothe yourself with the presence of the Lord Jesus Christ …” Romans 13:14.
“Put on your new nature, and be renewed as you learn to know your Creator and become like him,” Colossians 3:10.
“Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience … Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony,” Colossians 3:12, 14
“Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all the strategies of the devil,” Ephesians 6:11.
How are you dressing yourself each morning?
