Put On Christ

Text: Gal. 3:26-29

Introduction: If you are a child of God this morning then we are told to put on Christ. This is not referring to putting on a mask when we come to church on Sunday. Or putting clothes or a costume on. It is not referring a temporary change in our attitude or actions. These are some things that are done on a regular basis by people everyday. Some of you know people who are like that.

I. Prerequisite – Must be a child of God – v.26

A. By faith only

B. Faith is a loose word that we use generally speaking. It takes faith to get married because marriage vows are basically promises. It takes faith to send children off to school. It takes faith to get a prescription filled. It takes faith to eat in a restaurant, deposit money in a bank, sign a contract, drive on the highway, or get on an airplane or an elevator. Faith isn't some kind of religious experience for the elite; it's the glue that helps hold people's lives together.

But remember, faith is only as good as its object. If we trust people, we get what people can do; if we trust money, we get what money can do; if we trust ourselves, we get what we can do; if we trust God, we get what God can do.

C. Faith is described in Heb. 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

D. substance—The Greek word for this (hypostasis—that which gives reality, or “confidence” Things are made real by faith—which is to say that faith gives us the confidence that the things we have hoped for will be realized. evidence—The Greek word here (elenchos) means “proof.” of things not seen—They are invisible because they are going to happen in the future.

E. Faith comes by hearing the word of God.
1. Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

Ill. A twelve-year-old boy became a Christian during a revival. The next week at school his friends questioned him about the experience. "Did you see a vision?" asked one friend. "Did you hear God speak?" asked another. The youngster answered no to all these questions. "Well, how did you know you were saved?" they asked. The boy searched for an answer and finally he said, "It's like when you catch a fish, you can't see the fish or hear the fish; you just feel him tugging on your line. I just felt God tugging on my heart."

II. Baptized into Christ – v.27
A. We became members of His body, therefore we shared in His crucifixion, his burial, his resurrection, and his exaltation.
1. Romans 6:3,4 Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.

B. Immersed into Christ

C. Washed by Christ - Cleansed

Little Betsy had faithfully attended baptism classes. Her mother, wanting to be sure her daughter understood its significance, asked, "Honey, what does baptism mean?"
"Well, it isn't the water that makes you clean ..." she began.
Smiling, Mother thought, Yes, she understands,
"... it's the soap."

III. One in Christ – v.28

A. Having the mind of Christ – 1Cor. 2:16 “But we have the mind of Christ.”
1. Through our union with Christ, we have access to Christ’s mind, Christ’s divine thoughts, Christ’s counsel.

B. Unity

C. Submission

IV. Put on Christ – v.27

A. It’s a way of life – A lifestyle – Permanent

B. It’s a new attitude

C. It’s a devotion or being loyal to a new master

Conclusion: Won’t you put on Christ today. Let His light shine through you so others can see Christ in you all the time, not just at Church.
