Putting on Jesus

On August 9, Pastor Karen Witt preached on Ephesians 4:25-5:2, in which Paul advised the Ephesians to “put off falsehood … bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice” and instead to “follow God’s example.”  Karen urged her listeners to “put on Jesus” as the most important and beneficial cover we can wear each day.  The 13th century German mystic and theologian Meister Eckhart captured this idea when he wrote: “One ought to keep hold of God in everything and accustom his mind to retain God always among his feelings, thoughts, and loves.  Take care how you think of God.  As you think of him in church or closet, think of him everywhere.  Take him with you among the crowd and turmoil of the alien world.”  Listen to Karen’s sermon and meditate on how you can take Jesus with you wherever you go.
