Naked, Embarrassed and Exposed? 5

  1. 1. Naked, Embarrassed and Exposed? Then Put Something on. Colossians 3:12-17
  2. 2. Now Accessorize “I delight greatly in the Lord; my soul rejoices in my God. For he has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest, and as a bride adorns herself with jewels.” (Isaiah 61:10)
  3. 3. Now Accessorize We are the bride of Christ, adorned for the pleasure of the King of Kings. He held nothing back. We are provided with everything we need to adorn and accessorize ourselves for his delight. He is honored and blessed when we show off the gifts he gives us. He wants the world to see how wonderful and loving he is.
  4. 4. The Belt of Mercy • “Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful” (Luke 6:36) • Compassion falls down without mercy. • Emulate the King
  5. 5. The Purse of Faith • “For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ” (2 Peter 1:5-8).
  6. 6. The Purse of Faith • Little girls carry empty purses. • Teenagers carry a few items. • After carrying a purse for a few decades, you need wheels on it because it is so full. • When you forget your purse you may suffer without necessities, like your glasses. • "But if anyone does not have them, he is nearsighted and blind, and has forgotten that he has been cleansed from his past sins." (2 Peter 1:9, NIV)
  7. 7. Deep Pockets of Forgiveness • “Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you” (Col 3:13) • We have deep pockets filled with forgiveness. We need to reach in and hand it out freely. • Forgiveness is not based on the other persons contrition or remorse.
  8. 8. Deep Pockets of Forgiveness • Forgiveness reflects the goodness of God to the world. • God also knew something else. It is important to good health. • “A heart at peace gives life to the body” Proverbs 14:30 • The physical benefits include: lower heart rate; lower blood pressure; reduced chronic pain; and less stress.
  9. 9. The Smartphone of Peace • “Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.” (Colossians 3:15) • God’s To Do List: – Love the Lord Your God – Love your neighbor as yourself
  10. 10. The Smartphone of Peace • God’s address book: Whoever we come in contact with. • God’s schedule: Whatever he brings to our day. • When we view life this way we are at peace. • Jesus didn’t program his own agenda. Neither should we. • “You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you” (Isaiah 26:3)
  11. 11. The Watch of Self-Control • “For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men. It teaches us to say ‘No’ to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope —the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good.” (Titus 2:11-14)
  12. 12. The Watch of Self-Control • Choose wisely • Plan ahead • Work hard, you are trying to accomplish as much as possible before your deadline; the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ.
  13. 13. Conclusion • Dress every day. • Don’t wear your old stuff. • Remember that you are a child of the King and have not only the responsibility to represent him, but also the privilege and power that come with your position in Christ.
