Spreading The Gospel To The 4 Corners Of The Earth With Christian T-Shirts

Filed Under (Clothing) by Kev1 on 21-04-2008

cool4Christ™ Christian Apparel Emblem - The '4'

In our cool4Christ™ emblem, you will see the ‘4’ formed as part of the Cross. This ‘4’ signifies the spreading of the Gospel to the 4 corners of the earth and is exactly what we aim to accomplish through our Christian apparel. By the grace of God, we will not miss the mark. As followers of Christ, we are all commissioned by Jesus to take the message of the Gospel to the whole world.

15 And He said to them, Go into all the world and preach and publish openly the good news (the Gospel) to every creature [of the whole human race]. - Mark 16:15 (Amp)

We have a message of hope and life that a crying and desperate world needs to hear. However, approaching a complete stranger and talking about God is agreeably neither an effective nor easy way to reach out to people. You could probably be misperceived as a self righteous person with a ‘holier than thou’ mentality and scare people away. To share your faith without being overbearing, it is better to get individuals to come to you so you don’t have to approach them, especially if it’s someone you don’t already know.

In an increasingly global community, we are constantly exposed to numerous slogans and sayings all around us. And t-shirts are probably one of the biggest mediums of expression ever invented. There’s no reason why Christians shouldn’t effectively utilize this medium with Christian t-shirts. T-shirts are everywhere and the reach of the t-shirt culture extends far and wide, providing an excellent platform for lifestyle evangelism and getting this message out there.

In the Bible, we can see that the apostle Paul at times tuned-in with his audiences culturally. He was not of their world but when he was in it, he used references to the cultures of their day to bring home the message of Jesus Christ and salvation. Christian t-shirts are a great way for us to do the same today.

T-shirt industry estimates indicate that a single t-shirt might be seen about 1000 times in a year, considering that one trip to a shopping mall, festival or sporting event can easily garner 250 impressions. Some also say that during its lifetime of wear, the average t-shirt is read by as many as 3000 people. That’s pretty astounding, don’t you think?

And it’s very good news too, considering that most of us would never get the chance to share The Good News with that many people in our entire lifetime unless we’re a pastor or church professional. All of us as followers of Christ Jesus though, are called to be His ambassadors in sharing the boundless goodness of God’s amazing grace. In Paul’s letter to the Corinthian church, he wrote:

20 Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God. 21 For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. - 2 Corinthians 5:20-21 (NKJV)

Wearing Christian clothing enables us to use our lifestyle to evangelize in one of the most effective yet simple ways; in the places we go to, and to the people we meet as we go about our everyday lives. It is a splendid avenue for us to profess our faith in God and share the good news of the LORD with other individuals around us. As an ambassador, we would want to reflect positively on Him whom we serve and represent our commission well. Every believer can, in effect, be walking billboards for Jesus wearing hip, stylish and quality Christian apparel. The really neat thing about impressively designed Christian t-shirts is their ability to catch the eye, and eventually lead the viewer to read a message about the goodness of our awesome God. It’s often been said that the Christian may be the only ‘Bible’ some people read. Paul says:

3 You show that you are a letter from Christ, the result of our ministry, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts. - 2 Corinthians 3:3 (NIV)

Finding a connection with someone and getting them to be receptive to what you share may not usually be an easy thing to do. But that Christian t-shirt you wear can many times open the door to meaningful conversations with non-believers who like your shirt, which would have otherwise never happened.

It also lets us share and proclaim Christ in more ways than just talking. Sure, we witness and share testimony. But just donning Christian clothing is in itself another way of honoring, praising and worshipping God. If you want to tell other people that there is a higher power watching over humanity, you can sport Christian apparel. The chance to manifest an individual’s great sense of fashion comes as a bonus. :)

Fashion experts tell us that what you wear speaks volumes about you. Your clothes reflect your thoughts and your personality. So why not your faith? We can allow God to use our lives just by being lights; shining beacons in a dark and fallen world, constantly inspiring others and always pointing to Jesus.

Being sons and daughters of the Most High God is a great privilege which we should be proud of. Let your creative side out, dress uniquely, deviate from the norms and make a statement in body, soul and spirit!

Why not let your light shine wearing a Christian t-shirt?
