Christian Apparel - Adorning The Church, The Body Of Christ

Filed Under (Clothing) by Kev1 on 24-05-2008

We all like our churches to be clean and to look good, and often we adorn our churches in various manners. It’s a way we honor God and establish an environment conducive to hearing the Word preached, praising and worshipping the LORD.

A beautiful church

However, the church is not just the building we go to on Sundays. As Christians, we are the church, the body of Christ. In the Bible, the apostle Paul tells us:

16 For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said:
         “ I will dwell in them
         And walk among them.
         I will be their God,
         And they shall be My people.” - 2 Corinthians 6:16 (NKJV)

And being the church, we bring God’s kingdom with us, everywhere we go, at every time, in our work places, on our campuses, in our cities, and to the nations. As living, breathing, walking temples of God, we would want to reflect positively on the LORD and represent Him well. Be it in our words and actions towards others, or by example of our own lives, I’m sure we would all love to be a good and encouraging testimony to all.

As such, we the church should also dress ourselves, God’s living temples today, in a manner befitting the honor & glory our God deserves. Wearing Christian apparel is 1 great way to do this. Just be sure you know how to choose great Christian apparel. Often, we also put up posters or banners in or around our church, depicting a message about the goodness of our God and His amazing grace. We hope these would reach out to the lost or perhaps encourage our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ. Christian apparel can do the same being worn on God’s living, mobile temples, and are probably more effective too.

So look great for God; be cool for Christ!

    “Christian Apparel”. The name itself seems to sound odd. I think I understand what you are saying but the thought did come across my mind that maybe it is not what you wear that speaks of you life with Christ. Some of my best friends wear Harley Davidson and beer add shirts and they are the strongest witnesses that I know of because of their walks.

    I work with guys in the church who are in addictions of various types and for the majority of them they are some of the “best” (dress and words) outward facing Christians that I know. Give me a Christian who has sullied himself with the homeless and the addicted and most often you will find he or she doesn’t really care what they or anyone else wears in public or to church.

    I think one of the funniest things a person has said about the clothing someone wears is “Junk ON the trunk doesn’t mean junk IN the trunk”.

    With all of that said I do enjoy my daughter’s t-shirt that says “HEAVY DRINKER” on the front and some scripture on back (can’t remember exactly).

    Thanks for the article though, it was a good read and provoked some thoughts.

    Thanks for your comment Max. I do agree that it’s not what you wear that speaks of your life with Christ. Just a cool way to express your beliefs though.

    Great to hear your thoughts. I agree with both of you. On one hand I believe in dressing modelstly and desire to honour and glorify God in this way but I also recognise that many great men and women of God (John the Baptist for example) have probably been more than a little unkempt!

    Yep, I actually do design Christian T-shirts. Just that I haven’t launched them yet. Should be out soon. In the meantime, you can check out our Credo to see what the brand stands for.
