Who Are You Wearing?

Waschetikett

That's a question usually asked by reporters to "famous" people as they walk the red carpet. But today I am asking you that question:

Who are you wearing?

When you wake up in the morning and get dressed who are you wearing? The Bible clearly tells us that we are to put off the old self with its practices and put on the new self (Colossians 3:9,10).

So even before we can get dressed, we have to be naked. Naked from our previous dress designers Satan and his partner called Flesh. Their line includes designs such as:

sexual immorality
impurity
lust
evil desires
greed
anger
rage
malice
slander
filthy language
lies

(Colossians 3:5-9)

Once we clean our closets from these outdated and deadly designers, we can put on the clothes of our new designer-Jesus.

Some of the designs in His collection include:

compassion
kindness
humility
gentleness
patience
long-suffering
forgiveness
love

(Colossians 3:12-14)

So today look in the mirror and in the closet of your heart and ask yourself:

Who am I wearing?

And if you catch yourself with some clothes from the old self, not a problem. You can easily change your clothes in the dressing room of prayer.

And if even you don't own any more clothes from the old self but your clothes from the new self have gotten faded or maybe even wrinkled or torn from lots of wear, not a problem. You can just as easily have your clothes altered in the dressing room of prayer by the Expert of mending and making things new-Holy Spirit.

  1. Really enjoyed this post:)To think that our new Designer does not only have the best clothing designs, He also gives those who wear His clothes a Mansion as a bonus for Eternity!!!

  2. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints. - Ephesians 6 13-18

  3. Hi Karen,
    Thank you for stopping over to my blog and leaving a comment. Your words were helpful...yes, it is a day by day walk and I need to remember to take it day by day. Thank you for the reminder.
    I loved your post. I want to wear those things that God wants me to wear and I want to throw away the items that bring Him no glory whatsoever.
    Have a blessed day!
