do we clothe ourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ?
1st, we identify with Christ by
being baptized (Galatians
3:27). This shows our solidarity with
other Christians and with the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
2ND, we exemplify the qualities
Jesus showed while he was here on earth (love, humility, truth, service). In a
sense, we –role-play what Jesus would do in our situation (see Ephesians
4:24-32; Colossians 3:10-17). Clothe ourselves with compassion, kindness,
humility, gentleness and patience. We also must not give our desires any
opportunity to lead us into sin. Avoid those situations that open the door to
gratifying sinful desires.
受洗歸入基督的、都是披戴基督了 (加拉太書 3:27)。與她同訂死、埋葬、和復活。
