So, chosen by God for this new life of love, dress in the wardrobe God picked out for you: compassion, kindness, humility, quiet strength, discipline. Be even-tempered, content with second place, quick to forgive an offense. Forgive as quickly and completely as the Master forgave you. And regardless of what else you put on, wear love. It’s your basic, all-purpose garment. Never be without it.

Colossians 3:12-14

We have a new life, and God is always gracious in His giving. God has given us a new wardrobe to go with our new life. Before recovery, many of us dressed in our own wardrobes of worry, control, anger, and mistrust. We wore coats of resentment and bitterness but found they never kept us warm.

Our old suits slowly faded, looking worn and weathered from use, yet never felt the comfort of familiarity. We couldn’t wash our old wardrobes, nor could we take them off, so we continued to wear them in filthy conditions. Many of us grew tired of wearing our old struggles and sin. We longed to wear clothing that was new and fresh, instead of our grungy attire.

God heard our cries and offered us a new wardrobe. We were faced with deciding to keep our old, dirty costumes or to receive God’s gift of new, freeing armor. Letting go of our tattered and worn apparel wasn’t easy for a lot of us. They were the only garments we had ever known. In recovery, we learned how to shed, then discard, those heavy burdens weighing us down. We learned how to feel comfortable in our new clothing God made specially for us. We are now wearing God’s armor of truth, righteousness, peace, faith, and salvation. We carry with us the sword of the Holy Spirit as we practice compassion, kindness, humility, strength, discipline, and love. We have chosen to remove the worn, dirty outfits of our old lives. God has dressed us in His finest clothing as His gift for our new lives.

Today’s Prayer

Father God, we now have new clothes to wear. We are now dressed in Your love. You have adorned us in radiance and we shine brightly in this dark world. Thank You for the love we now wear and the joy of never having to put on the clothes from our past. In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.
