This is good advice for all Christians. We should use every opportunity we have to glorify God, and to show Christ in our world. Wearing a meek and quiet spirit can speak volumes in today’s din of degeneration. If someone can see that we have changed, are in submission to God and that we are trusting in Him, then it is easier for the unbelieving to understand why they need to come under God’s authority. When we practice what we preach, our preaching carries more weight, and actions speak louder than words.
What is speaking louder to your world, your clothes or your convictions? Believe me, you wear your convictions quite often, can people see them? We are talking about more than wearing a shirt or button or having a sticker with a Christian slogan on your car. There is a saying, “the clothes make the man”. When you do as Peter says then you are putting on timely apparel with timeless appeal. What are you putting on when you go out your door today?
