Are you willing to wear this garment?

By Adrian Rogers

BIBLE MEDITATION:

“Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.” 1 Peter 5:5

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:

To be “clothed” in 1 Peter 5:5 means to tie a knot or put on a servant’s apron. Basically this verse tells us to tie on the apron of a servant or slave and be humble.

Why do you think Peter used that figure of speech? I think it was because the night before He was crucified, Jesus laid aside His garments, girded Himself with a towel, and washed the disciples’ feet. Peter would never forget that moment. The Scripture records, “Peter saith unto Him, ‘Thou shalt never wash my feet.’ Jesus answered him, ‘If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with Me’ ” (John 13:8).

ACTION POINT:

There are two lessons here:

1. We must be clothed in humility. You can’t look down on somebody when you’re washing their feet.

2. Even though we are saved, we walk in a dirty world. We need to come to Jesus daily to cleanse us from our sins, restore and refresh us.
