Clothed in Christ

I would not consider myself to be the most fashionable. At our women’s retreat tonight, led by Dr. Lauren Winner, I learned that the original meaning of “fashion” is a verb; “to shape”. Dr. Winner spoke of how bread dough is shaped into loaves, clay can be shaped into goblets, and fashion shapes our identity. Clothing communicates something about ourselves to the world. As a Christian, how can I, clothed in Christ, wordlessly communicate Jesus to others?

In Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith. As many of you as were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. Galatians 3:26-27
