Episode ThemeImage- Reflecting: Our actions are one way we can show God to the world.
Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.
Do Christians dress differently than non-Christians? Time for a Bible quiz on clothes!
Question 1: Who was famous for wearing clothes made out of camel's hair? (Mark 1:6)
Question 2: After she died, people gathered together to show Peter all the robes and clothing she had made and given away to poor people around her. (Acts 10: 39)
Question 3: Whose father loved him so much that he bought a richly decorated robe just for him? (Genesis 37: 3)
Question 4: Who told a story about a wedding banquet at which a man who wasn't wearing wedding clothes was tied up and thrown outside the banquet into the darkness? (Matt. 22: 1-14)
How did you do? John the Baptist was famous not only for his camel-hair clothes, but also for preparing the way for Jesus. Dorcas (or Tabitha) was famous for her sewing and acts of kindness-so famous that people made Peter come to her town when she died. Not only did Peter come, he raised her from the dead. Jacob loved his son Joseph so much, he bought the fancy coat so that everyone would know who Joseph was. Jesus told the story about the wedding banquet to teach the people about the kingdom of God.
So what do clothes have to do with being a Christian? A lot! Colossians 3:12 says because we are "God's chosen people," this means that we are "holy and dearly loved." So how do we react to being chosen and loved by God? We want to look and act like God. We want to reflect God to others. How? By "clothing ourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience." By our "clothes," others will see God!
