THE CHRISTIAN DRESS CODE

Believe it or not, the church of Jesus Christ has a dress code. It is found in the Bible, and all God's people are expected to dress in this fashion.

I, along with Paul, must insist in the Lord that all of us dress in the appropriate fashion as befits the people of God: "Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience". (Colossians 3:12)

Ah! it would be much easier to follow this command if it involved matters of color, cut and design, wouldn't it? It would be much easier to spurn denim than selfishness. Women would find it simpler to be required to wear a dress or a hat than to wear kindness. And all of us would find it easier to wear any kind of standard clothing rather than humility! But, there it is, a Christian dress code. It seems that too many think these wonderful clothes are too good to wear all the time.

Like evening wear, these lovely clothes hang in our spiritual closets waiting for special occasions like conferences and such. But, these clothes are work clothes: suitable attire for "works of faith and labours of love." They are daily wear, always acceptable and always in fashion. What are you wearing?
