This Week We're Looking at Garment
How do you feel about clothing? There’s no doubt that what we wear speaks to who we are. Some prefer the classic lines of a business suit. Others feel comfy in yoga pants and a T-shirt. Sometimes our circumstances dictate the appropriate garment to don. A bride usually wears white, while those in mourning wear black. We can glean so much about someone simply by the clothes they wear.
Did you realize the Bible has quite a bit to say about garments? The first time we see anyone using clothing, Adam and Eve were ashamed after committing that first and far-reaching sin. As time went on, ancient peoples regarded clothing as a status symbol, a spiritual expression, and even a means to healing.
What faith it took, following the failure of every doctor, for her to press through the crowds with the goal of simply touching His garment. (Mark 5:28) What a swirl of emotions must have assailed her when she approached Jesus, looking Him in the eye to confess what she had done. Imagine the overwhelming joy she experienced to know her illness was finally over… all because she had the faith to touch the garment of God incarnate.
Our Eternal Wardrobe
We may all have different tastes and preferences in our clothing, but one thing is true for all Christians: when Jesus returns, we’ll be clothed in beautiful white garments, never to be blotted from the Book of Life. (Revelation 3:5) What a glorious promise. What will we do until we receive our eternal wardrobe? God calls us to be faithful and abide in Jesus, keeping His commands and relying on the Holy Spirit for guidance, teaching, and intercession. This final garment will, without a doubt, be the most costly and dear that we will ever wear. Jesus gave His own life for it. May we be found worthy to don it.
In 2017, fulfilling a long-time dream, she self-published a children’s book, The Little Vessel.
The Little Vessel is a modern-day parable, perfect for reading to children. Following the story you'll find several questions designed to help the more mature reader (tweens, teens, and adults as well) delve deeper into God's Word.
Drawing parallels with the little vessel's experiences, the questions encourage consideration of how God is working in the reader's life to accomplish His will.
LeighAnne's favorite Bible verse is Proverbs 3:5, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding."
