So as we work our way through this passage, we are being reminded of what The Spirit of God is up to in our lives. As followers of Jesus, He is allowing us to experience things in our lives that necessitate that we “put on” the new garments of Christ-likeness, with the greatest garment being His precious love. These garments of compassion, forgiveness, love, peace, worship, and service for our King are the fruit borne by those whose imperfect condition is being gloriously transformed into our heavenly position that we hold in Christ (2 Corinthians 3:18). We are to “put on” these garments because this is who we really are in Christ! We are being renewed in knowledge after the image of Him Who created and recreated us.
