Can changing your wardrobe really change your life? Of course, it can! Imagine how light and powerful you would feel if 100% of the clothes in your closet were the right clothes for you right now. Imagine that your wardrobe reflected both your personality and your personal style while suiting your lifestyle.
Your wardrobe needs to contain a selection of clothes suitable for all the possible situations that you may need to dress for. These situations are entirely unique for all of us and are ever-changing. Your wardrobe should be dynamic – it should adjust and change with your life. It is not a storage box to archive clothes!
By overhauling our wardrobe we give ourselves a chance to reimagine who we are, and more importantly, who we are going to be.
I had a favorite T-shirt that I liked to wear. It was well worn and soft, and it was my “go-to” shirt for wearing on a lazy day.
As followers of Christ, the changes in our behavior following conversion should be like a complete change of wardrobe. We should throw out the old clothes, and fill our closets with brand new ones. We should, “set [our] minds on things above, not on earthly things.” (Vs. 2) The problem is that for a lot of us, we tend to not throw away all of the old clothes. Sure, we throw out most of them. We get rid of most of our bad habits and most of our sinful desires, but sometimes we find ourselves tempted to hang on to that one comfortable old shirt. We keep it hanging in our closets, and we keep wearing it from time to time. God, however, is not looking for a partial change in wardrobe. He is looking for us to wear only the new clothes He has provided us through His Son Jesus Christ. If you have a favorite old t-shirt lying around in your life – one or two things from your past sinful life that you are not willing to give up – save yourself a lot of time and trouble and just throw it away. The new clothes are in much better shape, and they will last for eternity.
