God's fashion style

This brief post is concerned with God's fashion style, that is How does God clothe us. God's ultimate garment, or suit jacket or for the girls, the dress, which He covers us all with, is His Son, Jesus Christ. But underneath it, we find thick layers of colourful clothing, when on any given day we may wear numerous of these clothing but not all at the same time depending on the day and situation. On a very cold day, it is more a necessity to wear more layers than one would wear in the summer. Therefore God bids us to open his wardrobe (which he has given to us) and has lavishly enriched with all manner of clothing, for us to put them on and to never go out or in without the Jacket or the dress which is Jesus Christ.

Clothes are worn to cover nakedness and for defending the body from cold or injuries. These are the primary reasons why clothes are worn, but clothes are also worn for the sake of style, or to display one's identity or personality. God clothes us so that we may be like his Son, manifesting all of his holiness and ways and to the praise of His glory.

The clothes which the Lord has adorned us with is described as being beautiful (Isa 52:1) and being the best (Luke 15:22). The clothes are all fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia, (Psalm 45:8).

What do we find in the wardrobe

  • Salvation (psalm 132)
  • Righteousness (Psalm 132:9, Job 29:14)
  • The new self (Eph 4:24)
  • Compassion (Col 3:12)
  • Kindness     (Col 3:12)
  • Humility       (Col 3:12)
  • Patience       (Col 3:12)
  • Gentleness  (1Pet 3:4)
  • Modesty (1Tim 2:9)
  • Self-control (1Tim 2:9)
  • Love        (Col 3:14)
  • Jesus Christ Rom (13:14) - This is not an exhaustive list.

These clothes are ours because Jesus Christ has purchased them for us and it is like the servant of Abraham who brought out jewellery of silver and of gold, and garments, and gave them to Rebecca. Likewise the Spirit brings out this beautiful attires for us to wear with all adorned with the aroma of Jesus Christ.

What do you need today? Reach into your God-given wardrobe and pull out a piece of clothing and wear it, put it on by the Spirit. Do not open your old wardrobe and put on the filthy clothes found in them, but open your new wardrobe and put on the Clothes of your God which Jesus Christ has happily and expensively purchased for you.



  1. Enjoyed your post and like your thought process....excellent reading

  2. I really like this post. The richness of your metaphor conveys much more depth than just describing the fruits that living a Spirit-filled life bears! It's also very down to earth, as well - I could use this for my youth group, or any young christian who is learning about their relationship with God. Thank you for sharing!

When God turns a deaf ear on prayers

Does God always hear people’s prayers, or do some pray in vain thinking that God hears them, when in reality He chooses to turn a deaf hear to their cries? Some may perhaps have a notion that all prayers are worthy, and God being who He is is by nature willing to listen and hear their prayers delightfully. They entertain the notion that it is their birth right for God to listen to their prayers and answer them accordingly. Also, there are some who come before the presence of the Lord with severe doubts, defeated by the devils whisper that they are such an unworthy soul that for them to lift up their cries to the Lord is an abomination. They are mute by their own wickedness, depressed and thus fail to pray.

What does the scripture say about God turning a deaf hear to prayers? It is to be said that God is sovereign and can choose to answer any prayer as He sees fit. He is altogether happy and never backed into a corner, God always does whatever He pleases for He is free to do as He wills…

What does it mean to live a godly life?

If you ever asked yourself the question, what does it mean to live a godly life? and if your not exactly sure what living a godly life involves, this extract taking from Charles Seet book 'A Christian in a non-Christian world' provides ample guidance on just what to do.

Now it is worth asking the question then, 'What does it mean to live godly?' It does not mean that we are just to confine ourselves within a set of rules and regulations. Some people reduce godly living to a list of 'do’s and don'ts.' But the meaning of godly living goes far deeper than that.

Godly living means living in the manner that God wants us to live. It means having the same feelings, attitudes and heart's desires that God has. It means that we love the things that God loves, care for the things that God cares for, and dislike those things which He dislikes. And since God loves righteousness, a godly person also loves righteousness. Since God hates sin, a godly person also hates …

Women of the Bible: Adah and Zillah

The Sin of Adam and Eve resulted in the fall of humanity. Every generation after them became wicked and that is why scripture affirms, ‘that there is no one righteous, no, not even one.’ Mankind became enslave to the passions of its flesh, its desires became its ruler and men followed the natural dictates of their hearts; and were it not for Sovereign grace, the race of men would now only be read of by angels in the library of extinct creatures. Adam and Eve witnessed the consequences of their sin in the death of their beloved son, Abel, by the hands of Cain who murdered his brother in anger and was thus sent away from the presence of God. My dear sisters, sin is not only sin when it is found in its extremes, sin is also sin in its subtlety and vanity. Sin is sin when one's affection is set on another and not on God, when one lives to please a thing or a being which is not God; this is also sin.
This becomes especially evident in the lives of Adah and Zillah the wives of Lamech. Th…
