This morning I was walking in downtown Indianapolis, on my way to the final day of the North American Christian Convention. Someone on the street noticed that I was wearing a blue University of Kentucky basketball T-shirt. Smiling, he remarked, “You sure are brave to wear that shirt in this town!”
“I guess so!” I replied.
Our clothing sometimes tells others something about us. It could show that we are proud of a certain city, state, sports team, etc.
The Bible says that when we become Christians we are, in a sense, clothed in him. Our actions and our words should reveal that we are not just associated with him, but that we are indeed proud of Jesus.
Colossians 3:12 says, “Therefore, as Gods’ chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.”
If you are clothed in Jesus Christ, you just might get someone’s attention as you walk down the street.
