Hi, royal family of faith!!! I am sooo happy to be here with you and Jesus as the Jesus team for heaven!!! Today, I want to share with you the third in the series of comparisons between a physical athlete and a spiritual athlete!!! I love how our Father has chosen our running attire:
Proper clothing to cover appropriately, protect and prevent discomfort is an important choice.
Romans 13:14 says to “clothe ourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the sinful nature.”
This passage is saying that we need to put on outwardly, or model the righteousness of Christ. Just like proper clothing for the physical athlete provides protection and prevents discomfort, clothing ourselves in the righteous ways of Christ provides protection from the destructiveness of sin and spares us from the pain of its consequences. YIKES!!! LET’S WATCH OUT!!! It also brings glory to the Lord and blesses others around us when we clothe ourselves in His attributes of “compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, patience, forgiveness & love.” (Colossians 3:12-14). 🙂 DIVINE SPIRIT PROVIDED AWESOMENESS!!!
Oh let us clean out the closet (heart) of what is the old clothing that Colossians 3:5-9 says we need to take off and get rid of (that of the old sin nature) and put on what is of Colossians 3:12-14. If you have already taken it off – good!!! Keep it off!!! 🙂
Let us hand over the old clothing to God by confessing (agreeing) to Him about what is sin and ask Him to help us discard it permanently so we don’t take it back!!! Then having room in our closet (heart) we can trust Him to provide us the ability for the new needed clothing of His Spirit to fill it. Oh let us give Him thanks that through Christ’s sacrifice on the cross, He has us provided for us and covered us with His righteousness!!! It looks divine on us, divine royal darlin’s of faith!!! Let us praise Him together!
Romans 3:22 says that “Righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe.”
I love this song here that reminds us of who we are and how we are seen in Christ Jesus as royal sons and daughters of the King – His family whom He believes in to shine for Him and powerfully defended to bring heaven to earth!!! THANK YOU FOR LOVING US JESUS AND SEEING US AS HEAVENLY AMBASSADORS FOR YOUR BEAUTIFUL LIFE ON EARTH PURPOSES!!! OH YOU JUST MAKE ME SMILE AND INSPIRED TO BRING YOU GLORY!!!
