Don’t lie to one another. You’re done with that old life. It’s like a filthy set of ill-fitting clothes you’ve stripped oﬀ and put in the fire. Now you’re dressed in a new wardrobe. Every item of your new way of life is custom-made by the Creator, with the Creator’s label on it. All the old fashions are now obsolete. Words like Jewish and non-Jewish, religious and irreligious, insider and outsider, uncivilized and uncouth, slave and free, mean nothing. From now on everyone is defined by Christ, everyone is included in Christ.
(Colossians 1:9-11, The Message translation)
God, there is something in the air: it’s itchy, scratchy and it’s kind of like trying to fit into new clothes. God, whatever it is, help us to lean into the new, help us to fit into whatever this new thing is, whatever these new garments are that You have prepared for us. We’ve acquired all of these old clothes and now it’s cleaning time. So, Lord, help us to give over the old things and help us make room for Your new clothes. Whatever You are calling us to, we will not tiptoe around it, we will continue to seek You and trust You. Amen.
