“And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They donâ€&#x;t work or make their clothing, 29 yet [King] Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. 30 And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the Matt 6:28-33 | Luke 12:27-31


... fire tomorrow, He will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith? 31 “So don‟t worry about these things, saying, „What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?‟ 32 These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. Matt 6:28-33 | Luke 12:27-31


33

Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and He will give you everything you need.

Matt 6:28-33 | Luke 12:27-31


Spiritual Clothing #1 Armor of GOD


10 A final word: Be strong in

the Lord and in His mighty power. 11 Put on all of GODâ€&#x;s armour so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. 12 For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, ... Ephesians 6:10-17


... and against evil spirits in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore, put on every piece of GODâ€&#x;s armour so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm. 14 Stand your ground, putting on the belt of truth and the body armour (breastplate) of GODâ€&#x;s righteousness. 15 For shoes, put on the peace that comes ... Ephesians 6:10-17


... from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared. 16 In addition to all of these, hold up the shield of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil. 17 Put on salvation as your helmet, and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of GOD. Ephesians 6:10-17

The Helmet of Salvation Keeping the head safe. Do I believe in JESUSâ€&#x; complete, saving work at Calvary? (Hebrews 5:9 | Philippians 4:7)


The Sword of the Spirit Defensive & Offensive weapon. Am I allowing the Word of God to cut through and expose my innermost thoughts and desires for GOD to see? (Hebrews 4:12) (John 6:63)


Spiritual Clothing #2 Disguised Wolf


15

“Beware of false prophets who come disguised as harmless sheep but are really vicious wolves. 16 You can identify them by their fruit, that is, by the way they act. Can you pick grapes from thorn-bushes, or figs from thistles? Matt 7:15-20


17 A

good tree produces good fruit, and a bad tree produces bad fruit. 18 A good tree canâ€&#x;t produce bad fruit, and a bad tree canâ€&#x;t produce good fruit. 19 So every tree that does not produce good fruit is chopped down and thrown into the fire. Matt 7:15-20


20

Yes, just as you can identify a tree by its fruit, so you can identify people by their actions.

Matt 7:15-20


Disguised behind my ... Self-righteousness (Luke 18:9-14)

Insecurities False Humility

“Holier than thou ...�


self-publicity motivated

keep your motives in check do it for the Right Reasons!


“Watch out! Don‟t do your good deeds publicly, to be admired by others, for you will lose the reward from your Father in heaven. When you give to someone in need, don‟t do as the hypocrites do – blowing trumpets in the synagogues and streets to call attention to their acts of charity! Matt 6:1-4


I tell you the truth, they have received all the reward they will ever get. But when you give to someone in need, donâ€&#x;t let your left hand know what your right hand is doing. Give your gifts in private, and your Father, who sees everything, will reward you. Matt 6:1-4
