BE A “PUT ON” AND DRESS APPROPRIATELY
October 22, 2021
“Therefore, as God’s chosen ones, holy and dearly loved, put on…” (Colossians 3:12 CSB)
Yesterday, we focused on being called God’s holy and beloved chosen. As a chosen daughter or son of God, and brother of Jesus, King of Kings, we are loved so much that the Lord tells us, “do not worry about your life, what you will eat; nor about the body, what you will put on.” (Luke 12:22 NKJV). Life is made simpler for us. He tells us not to worry about what to put on. He is the ultimate stylist and gives a whole list of things to put on and also, things to purge out of our closet.
