How long does it take you to pick out the clothes you’re wearing on any given day? Do you pick your clothes out the night before or just go for it the morning of? The truth is, what we wear represents a part of who we are. Whether it’s the company logo on our hats or shirts that tell others who we work for, the work boots that express our consistent work ethic, or the casual jeans and t-shirt that yell “it’s the weekend”! As Christians, we know we are to represent Christ in all we do. Sometimes, however, we do not take the time to intentionally put on our team jersey, which is our new nature, that says “Chosen” on it.
So today, let’s practice putting these characteristics on today: mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, patience, forgiveness, love, peace, gratitude, and wisdom. I wonder what our community would be like if we, God’s chosen people, would put on our new nature and represent him in this way?
