RCL Daily Devotion for Wednesday, July 17, 2019
RCL Daily Devotions written by Dr. Kimberly Leetch from RCL Worship Resources (see more).
We all have one in our closet. Admit it, you have one too. It’s one perfect outfit. One article of clothing or an accessory that, when you wear it, makes you feel unstoppable. What is it about that outfit that makes us feel so powerful? For me, my perfect outfit shows the world externally how amazing I feel on the inside. It’s a reflection of my personality. It’s a signal to others that I am confident, happy, approachable, caring, someone they want to know. (Incidentally, it’s currently a flower print sundress.)
Paul knew what he was talking about when he suggested that we clothe ourselves in Christ. When we’re clothed in that perfect outfit, nothing can stop us and we’re a positive influence on the world. When we wear our most sinful selves, it’s like a stain on our perfect outfit. When we clothe ourselves in Christ, the light of Christ shines so brightly from within us – we are most certainly a positive influence on the world when we are wearing Christ!
