EXPLORING OUR REFORMED FAITH
"Clothed with the Virtues of Christ"
Dr. Neal Plantinga, Jr.
In Colossians 3 the Christian life is positively described as a set of characteristic "clothing" worn by Christians. The idea is that certain virtues fit Christians especially well—compassion, for example, as well as humility, patience, forgiveness, and "love that binds these virtues together in perfect harmony." What are these virtues like? What are their counterfeits? How would a person hope to get them? How may Christians receive the counsel to "clothe yourselves with the virtues of Christ" not simply as moral duty, but also as glad invitation?
