Uniforms. Whether it is waiting tables, shooting free throws, marching in formation, yelling through a megaphone, taking blood pressure, protecting our town or fighting for our country, usually some kind of uniform is worn to designate you as a member of that particular squad.
It feels good to be a part of a team whether “team” is referencing a sports team or a work team. Wearing a uniform can bring people together and bring a sense of belonging. A uniform can also be worn to help protect the body. And with that uniform comes responsibility to do your very best to make the team all that it can be. The uniform reminds others that you are representing something specific.
As Christians we have uniforms to wear as a representative of our team – Team Believers! We are to clothe ourselves with the Christian uniform of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. (Colossians 3:12).
We are to represent Jesus to everyone so they know that we belong to Him. We should represent Him so that everyone wants to be a part of our team. There is no limit to how many can be on His team. We just have to accept the Giver of the uniform and wear it proudly.
But Satan doesn’t want us to be a part of that team so he tries really hard to break us down. Therefore, we must put on another uniform as soon as our feet hit the floor and that’s the protective uniform of armor. Spiritual pieces of armor to protect our heart, our mind and our Spirit. (Ephesians 6:10-18)
Whether or not we are on a team with uniforms in our every day life with our job, our school or our career, we can be a part of Team Believers and have the benefit of the best looking uniform ever! The Uniform of Salvation.
If you don’t already have one, please take it now. Wear it proudly. Because, wow….it looks really good on you!!
