Inside Out

Posted by David DuBois on March 02, 2023

"The night is far gone; the day is at hand. So then let us cast off the works of darkness and put on the armor of light."
Romans 13:12

I remember when I was younger in my college days, I wore some outfits that were comfortable but years later seemed to me to be very inappropriate. But now as I look into the mirror, those pieces of clothing don't seem to match the person I am today.

The Holy Spirit impresses on my heart, Make the outside match the internal change I’ve made.
So I went through every item in my closet, asking, God does this reflect the new me You are making me to be? I want people to see my heart, not my body when I meet them. Lord, I’m learning that I am the temple of your Holy Spirit, so how would you like your temple decorated?

I observed what godly men wear on different occasions.
“But, Lord, I don’t want to be a clone! How can I be me—not a clone of others but a reflection of the new me?”

1 Corinthians 10:23 says: “ ‘All things are lawful’—but not all things are helpful. "All things are lawful," but not all things build up.

How about you? Does your outward appearance match the inward you?
