CLOTHES LINES

 
"All of you who have been baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Him." —Galatians 3:27
 

Being clothed with Christ means:

  • living "honorably as in daylight" and making "no provision for the desires of the flesh" (Rm 13:13, 14),
  • putting "on that new man created in God's image, whose justice and holiness are born of truth" (Eph 4:24),
  • being clothed "with power from on high" (Lk 24:49), that is, the Holy Spirit (see Acts 1:8),
  • clothing ourselves "with heartfelt mercy, with kindness, humility, meekness, and patience" (Col 3:12),
  • clothing ourselves with humility in our "relations with one another" (1 Pt 5:5),
  • "putting on faith and love as a breastplate and the hope of salvation as a helmet" (1 Thes 5:8), and
  • putting "on the armor of God" so that we "may be able to stand firm against the tactics of the devil" (Eph 6:11).

When you were baptized, you were clothed with a baptismal garment to symbolize being clothed with Christ. Have you put on the full clothing and armor of God? Are you living your Baptism to the full?

 
Prayer: Father, may I "dress for success," that is, eternal life.
Promise: "Blest are they who hear the word of God and keep it." —Lk 11:28
Praise: Jane stopped praying for her husband to change and began to pray that she find new ways to support, encourage, and love him.
