God's Dress Code

Scripture: “Rather, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the sinful nature.”

Romans 13:14 NIV

Amos has no dress code! That I am sure of! I can spend hours grooming him and as soon as I turn him loose in the paddock he will go a few steps, drop his head looking for some nice loose dirt and roll! Not once but several times. He then turns, looks at me with his now dirty face and I think I see a slight smile. I even believed he winked at me once, the stinker. He really doesn’t care how he looks. Actually the rolling in the dirt gives him a layer of “protection” from bugs and those little critters that want to bite him.

God has a dress code for you and I. No, I am not referring to clothing items such as dresses, pants or shirts. I will say that in that sense modesty and proper attire are appropriate. However, I am referring to the dress code above. We should “clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ …” and Romans 13 give us a good idea what that is all about. Take time to at least read that chapter today if you can. If you do, and follow those guidelines, you will keep the dirt, bugs and little critters out of your life.

Prayer Thought: Lord, help me to keep Satan from bugging me today.
