What Are You Wearing?

Ephesians 6:13-17 NIV Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.  Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

My two year old is absolutely engrossed by anything princess-related! Disney movies, dolls and dresses!  In fact, she associates any type of dress with being a princess.  A few days ago, I wore a dress to work and she said, "Mommy, you're a princess!" :-)  Whenever she pays attention to our wedding photos, she points to me and says, "princess." Whenever she wears a dress, she identifies herself as a princess. It does not matter to her what kind of dress it is: summer, dressy or casual.

The point is that when she wears a dress and identifies herself as a princess, her attitude is different. She feels prettier and she's prancing around the house, twirling around in her dress!

My question to you today is "what are you wearing?" Are you putting on the full armor of God? When you're wearing the full armor of God, is your attitude different? It should be. You are an ambassador of Christ and what you "wear" should be representative of this fact.   The scripture says that we should wear the belt of truth, breastplate of righteousness, gospel of peace as shoes, shield of faith, helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit.

As you begin your week, be sure that as you're putting on your physical clothes, you do not slack in dressing your spiritual man as well. What you're wearing spiritually is very important as it will impact your attitude and your entire day.

May you experience the life that God has called you to live as you dress as Kings and Queens in your spiritual gear!
