Put On the Lord Jesus Christ
Notice with what solemnity the Apostle gives the master His full, official formal title here, put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ.
Do we put Him on as Lord: bowing our whole wills to Him, and accepting Him, His commandments, promises, providences, with glad submission?
Do we put on Jesus, recognizing in His manhood as our Brother not only the pattern of our lives, but the pledge that the pattern, by His help and love, is capable of reproduction in ourselves?
Do we put Him on as the Lord Jesus Christ, who was anointed with the Divine Spirit, that from the head it might flow, even to the skirts of the garments, and every one of us might partake of that unction and be made pure and clean thereby?
Are we daily, as sure as we put on our clothes in the morning, putting on Christ the Lord?
Put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and do it day by day, and then you have put on the whole armour of God.
Alexander Maclaren, Exposition of Holy Scripture
