How Shall We Dress?

I am not talking about the modesty issue here although I'm a big fan of modesty :).  Did you know that God picks an outfit for us?  We are children of God, the King of kings, and we are expected to be "dressing" differently than the world.  Can the world tell when they look at us that we are Christ's ambassadors and that we belong to God's kingdom?
"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 whatever grievances you may have against one another.  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

"All of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because 'God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.'" 1 Peter 5:5b

"Clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the sinful nature." Romans 13:14

Each day, let's examine ourselves to see if we are properly dressed as God's holy, dearly loved, chosen people.  Do others see Christ in us when they take a look at us?  If not, we need to change our "clothes."

May we clothe ourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ in all these things and more!

Clever photo and as always great scripture choices & inspirational words! Truly we need to examine if we are properly dressed! Such wisdom!

I pray that others see Christ in me! I am so blessed by seeing Him in you and your living for God! My prayers today were that God would send me and send others where we need to be in WFW to be refreshed.
I wish you had come to visit the #36 right after you...but thanks for your sweet visit.

Thanks, sweet sister...enJoy WFW!
