What Are You Wearing

Have you ever been asked, “What are you wearing?” Let’s be honest, if you have been married over a year, you have been asked this question multiple times. If it was up to me I would wear jeans and a T-shirt everywhere I go. My wife and I will go out to a nice restaurant, and we both will start getting ready. I clean up a little and I put on a clean pair of jeans and fresh T-shirt, and I am ready to go. So I sit down and watch ESPN while she gets ready. After an hour goes by, I go to the bathroom to speed her up, because it is time to go. I walk into the bathroom and then I get that look! Guys, you know that look! Then she asked the question, “What are you wearing?” That means I have to take my jeans and T-shirt off and put on something a little nicer.

Romans 13:11-14 and says, “The hour has come for you to wake up from your slumber, because salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. The night is nearly over; the day is almost here. So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light. Let us behave decently, as in the daytime, not in orgies and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and debauchery, not in dissension and jealousy. Rather, clothe yourself with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the sinful nature.” Paul was asking the Roman Christians and He is asking us today, “What are you wearing?” So many times we confess one thing and live another. Professing followers of Christ living no different from the world. Take off the ways of the world and put on Christ today. Clothe yourself with the Lord Jesus Christ! The hour has come Church, wake up from our slumber. I hope you have a great Friday!
