Thoughts on Today's Verse...

What are you wearing today? I hope you are clothed with Christ. Anything else is simply out of style by heaven's standards, no matter whose designer fashions you may be wearing. You can be clothed with Christ by surrendering your life to Jesus as your Savior through faith (Romans 13:14), believing that he is God's Son who died for you, and trusting in God's power that raised him from death to give you life (1 Corinthians 15:1-7; Colossians 2:12; 3:1-4). Confess Christ as your Lord and Savior, trust him for your salvation (Romans 10:9-13) as you share with him in his death, burial, and resurrection through baptism (Romans 6:3-14; Acts 22:16). He promises to send his Spirit to live inside you and to forgive you all of your sins as he gives you new birth into his family (Titus 3:3-7). You will be God's child and have a home waiting for you in heaven. For those of us who are Christians, these thoughts are a reminder of what God has done for us. If you are not a follower of Christ, the world doesn't have to be a cold and lonely place; the Lord Jesus can be with you everywhere you go if you respond to him in faith.

My Prayer...

Father, thank you for providing a way for me to become your child. Thank you for clothing me in Jesus' righteousness. Thank you for making it possible for me to call you Father and to have Jesus as my older brother. Thank you, dear Father, for Jesus, in whose name I pray. Amen.
