“Do not present your members to sin as instruments for unrighteousness, but present yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life, and your members to God as instruments for righteousness.” (Romans 6:13)
I learned a few things in my short time here in the world, some profound, other general information, and some are just useless facts. One of those things, though I don’t know what category it falls in, is to dress according to the place, situation, occasion, and the like. If I’m in a court room, I must present myself in regards to the court. Job interviews alone require various attire on their own. Sports, parties, work, beach, even going to Church has a… I’m going to leave that alone. A costume for every event is a presentation.
The presentation or the representation of our members are extremely important for ourselves, the gospel, and moreover to glorify Our Lord and Savior Jesus of Christ. The way we present our members demonstrates the impact Christ has had on our life. It gives a lost world hope, a struggling believer a purpose, the name of Jesus magnified.
In my luxurious career in sin, you never had to question my level of depravity. It was obvious and I represented well, how much more should we present these new members to for the kingdom. The New Living translation states it like this, “For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” (Ephesians 2:10) We are God’s presentation, masterpiece, artwork; represent.

Daily Quote: The clothes we wear are what people see. Only God can look on the heart. The outward signs are important. They reveal something of what is inside. If charity is there, it will become visible outwardly, but if you have no charitable feelings, you can still obey the command. Put it on as simply and consciously as you put on a coat. You choose it; you pick it up; you put it on. This is what you want to wear.”
This Week’s Verse to Memorize:
“whom having not seen you love. Though now you do not see Him, yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory.” 1 Peter 1:8
