Clothe yourselves therefore, as God’s own chosen ones (His own picked representatives), [who are] purified and holy and well-beloved [by God Himself, by putting on behavior marked by] tenderhearted pity and mercy, kind feeling, a lowly opinion of yourselves, gentle ways, [and] patience [which is tireless and long-suffering, and has the power to endure whatever comes, with good temper]. (Colossians 3:12 AMP)
We put physical clothes on part for decoration, to bring out our best coloring and figure and to cover us and keep us warm. We have a limited amount of clothes. No week is complete without shopping for more and new and prettier outfits.
With Jesus we have clothes also.They’re to beautify our internal qualities, they’re to comfort us and they’re to comfort and love others. We need to dress up in a kind feeling. Kindness comforts a baby and it also can be used to ease an adults’ turmoil. When we dress ourselves with a lowly opinion of ourselves, people can confide in us, they feel safe. Pride comes before a fall so we want to not be always getting down on ourselves but we have to have a healthy picture of who we are, leaning towards humility. Those are just some of the Jesus clothes we dress in each day. As we work on these and other qualities we’ll find the possibilities are endless. So we have a different outfit for each day of eternity. Sounds good to me!
