Some things that the show has caused me to contemplate, are that:
Shoes are a need and not a luxury. Because of the terrain, their scope of hunting and fishing is limited. It just beats up the feet terribly. They are hungry a lot because of this.
Does that make you think of "having your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace". Eph. 6:15.
Anyway, I think we need to get dressed in the clothing God has available to us.
This week I read Titus 2:10 and the phrase "adorn the doctrine of God our Savior in every respect." NASB "Adorn the doctrine of God our Savior in all things." KJV. That phrase has never stood out to me before. I am curious to get your thoughts on how Christians are to do this.
Throughout the Bible, there are references of 'putting on' things and even taking off things.
Putting on or adorning:
Romans 13:14 - Put on the Lord Jesus. NASB
Eph 4:24 - Put on the new self. NASB
Eph 6:11 - Put on the full armor of God NASB
Isa 61:3 - Put on the garment of praise
Isa 61:3 - Take off the spirit of heaviness.
Heb 12:1 - Put aside every weight that so easily besets us.
Eph 4:25 - Lay aside every falsehood.
I've looked up things on commentaries, but I want to know what you think. (I'm sure this portion of Scripture is not about clothing.)
These are comments made by friends on Facebook.
1. We need to 'wear' our faith regardless of our state in life.
2.My commentary says "Practice what you preach". So if we're preaching the Word of God, we should be living the Word of God through actions, words and deeds. The gospel is so simple and we try to make it so hard.
3. Be Christ-like in all we think, say, and do 24/7.
4. It means to live in such a way that other people can see that you genuinely and sincerely love God.
5. I feel like it says, in a nutshell, if you will allow me... "Don't just throw His name around and shame Him." Your life and your words should make others WANT what you have in Him.
Basically what your daddy told you about HIS name when you were growing up. At least mine did.
6. One thought. Put on the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness.
7. I've been reading a lot of Francis Schaeffer this week, and the word "adorn" triggers an "art" response in me. Be beautifully creative in our personal presentation of Christ in us?
