Mark Twain said, in a well-known quote, “Clothes make the man……naked people have little or no influence on society”. In his message, Philip Alley draws a parallel between this statement and the matter of being clothed spiritually. The Bible has much to say about what we should be spiritually clothed with, and what is to be put off and got rid of. The Apostle Paul, in his letter to the Colossians, instructed the people to get rid of anger, rage, malice, slander, filthy language, deception, evil desire and greed. Paul then goes on to say that we are to be clothed with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. James describes evil thoughts as showing favouritism and discriminating against others. Immature people, says Philip, react while mature persons respond. Philip then goes on to describe the spiritual armour that Paul speaks of in his letter to the Ephesians, giving detail of the attributes of each item and the purpose of each one. Philip closes with a quote from Paul. “When you have done everything to stand, stand firm”.
