Are You Wearing Your Uniform

Today is 4th of July and one popular event is a parade with uniformed men and women representing the various military branches.

Wearing a uniform, whether military or part of your job (an airline pilot for example) changes the way people see you. That uniform makes you stand out in a crowd. When you put it on you are stating that you are associated with whatever that uniform represents and that obligates you to act accordingly.

As Christians, we have a uniform. What does our Christian uniform look like? Colossians 3:12 says ď...clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience...Ē (NIV)

These are characteristics that Jesus taught and modeled. These are characteristics of His Spirit that lives in us. This is what God means when He says He is making us into the likeness of His Son.

When we are compassionate when others donít care; when we are kind when others are thoughtless; when we are humble, gentle and patient when those around us are just the opposite, we will stand out. By choosing to put on this uniform we are stating that we belong to Christ; our Savior, our Redeemer, our King and that our desire is to be like Him.

Just as these are characteristics of the heart, so putting them on is an exercise of the heart. Itís not easy. Thereís no formula. It wonít happen instantly. Only through our desire, determination and sincerity can Godís Spirit clothe us daily.

Godís uniform may not be stylish or comfortable, but wearing it is a privilege. Proudly wearing our uniform of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience wherever we are, whatever we do we represent Christ as we should if we call ourselves Christians.

Are you wearing your uniform?

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

God allows us to experience pain, suffering and various trials in life so that we would be able to clothe ourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. When we are in a situation that calls for these clothings, we appreciate the 'apparel' and the inner beauty that it shows. Well written article.
