Yes! you heard me right “Clothe yourselves with the LORD JESUS CHRIST”.It says in Romans:13:14,
“Clothe yourself with the Presence of the LORD JESUS CHRIST. And don’t let yourself think about ways to indulge your evil desires.”
In ‘The Message’ translation it says “Dress yourselves in Christ, and be up and about!”.
I believe being up and about is spending time with the LORD 1st and foremost thing in the Morning. Dare not put your feet down unless you put on the LORD JESUS. I heard Joyce Meyer say, “Going out without praying is like going naked”. Spiritually you are vulnerable to the enemy.
What can putting on the LORD JESUS actually mean in literal terms?
We cannot agree more with the saying “Show me who your friends are and I’ll tell you who you are?” The more you spend time with GOD the more you tend to become like HIM. More of HIS Divine character rubs off on you. You start walking, talking, thinking and doing things like JESUS. What other way to please GOD than being in HIS Presence.
There are sooo many benefits spending time in GOD’s Presence and reading HIS Word.
Few of them are,
1. Turn into HIS image (2 Cor:3:18)
2. Divine Protection (Ps:91:1)
3. Bearing HIS fruits (Jn:15:1)
