I rarely watch awards shows - do I really need to know if other people in the entertainment industry like a certain movie, play, song, or performer? Do I need to cheer on my favorites? Okay, I'm done playing the curmudgeon.
One thing that has become a regular part of these shows is the red carpet arrival and interviews. It's pretty much guaranteed that one of the interviewer's questions will be about the clothing that the star is wearing - in particular, who the designer of the dress or suit is. The standard wording of this question is, "Who are you wearing?"
Clothing is used as a metaphor by Paul in his letter to the Ephesians. In chapter 4 he encourages them (and us) to "throw off" our old sinful nature like dirty, ugly clothes. We're brand new people when we're "In Christ", so we should "put on" our new nature like brand new clothing. When asked, "Who are you wearing?", our answer is, "Jesus!"
This Sunday, October 8th, we'll be talking about our "New Uniforms" as a part of God's Team, the church. I hope you'll be able to join us.
No More Bench Riding!
This Sunday morning will also feature our Ministry Fair as a part of our Worship Celebration. Various ministries within our church will have displays describing what they do and how individuals can get involved in serving in big and small ways. Plan on coming with the goal to discover where you might fit best in using how God has shaped you to serve.
