Don’t Take Off Your Clothes!

            Col. 3:12 Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.

            Any of you old timers, like me, remember the streaking craze? Dianne Neal Matthews wrote something, a couple of years ago, which reminded me of it.
            During the spring of 1974, college students around the nation, as a prank, began shedding their clothes and running naked in public locales. It was a fad. (A streaker even crashed the Academy Awards and ran across the stage.)
            I wonder if we, Christians, ever look like spiritual “streakers” to the beings in heaven. It seems easy for us to shed our spiritual clothes of “compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.”
            Unfortunately, this is not prank. Let’s not take off our spiritual clothes—received from Jesus.
