"Put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to gratify its desires." Paul used a word that means "clothe." We are supposed to dress with Christ's purity and goodness.

But if you had to remove one garment for each of your jealous thoughts, for each time you became impatient, or thought too much of yourself today, would you look like a Hanes display? Paul wanted us to know what time it is and what kind of clothes we need because the day of Christ may be imminent. What clothes will you wear today or tomorrow, if it comes?...
