“But put on the Lord Jesus Christ and make no provision for the flesh in regard to its lusts” (Romans 13:14).

To put on the Lord Jesus Christ is to clothe oneself in the garments appropriate for the life of Christ that we are to make known. It is the daily, regimented means by which the internal reality of who we are in Christ is played-out with growing consistency. Just as our childhood games of “good guys” and “bad guys” were enhanced by dressing up to look the part, the wardrobe of Christ is necessary to playing the role God has written for our lives.
