Christmas Clothes

Born on Christmas morning, Jesus was wrapped in swaddling cloths and placed in a feeding trough (Luke 2:1-15).

Transfigured on the mountain, His clothes became dazzling white to reveal His heavenly glory (Luke 9:28-36).

Condemned by sinful men, He was dressed with a purple robe and mocked as the King of the Jews (Mark 15:16-20, Luke 23:11).

Crucified on Good Friday, He was disrobed of His clothes as the soldiers divided it among themselves (John 19:23-24).

Buried that same day, He was wrapped in linen cloths and placed in a sealed tomb (Luke 23:50-53).

Resurrected on Easter morning, He left only the burial clothes to be found by his friends in the empty tomb (Luke 24:1-12).

Coming again, Jesus will wear a robe dipped in blood with a name written on it and on his thigh: King of Kings and Lord of Lords (Revelation 19:11-16).

“Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others. Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony.” (Colossians 3:12-14)

We’re dressed and ready this Christmas day. Come, Lord Jesus (Revelation 22:20-21).
