C.S. Lewis once described our new life in Jesus as “dressing up as Christ” (C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity, 50th Anniversary ed. (London: HarperCollinsPublishers, 2002), p 188). The Bible discusses this same concept in the parable of the wedding guests and wedding clothes (Matthew 22:1-14). This is a great way to teach our kids about how the new life in Christ works. Have each of your children dress up in—or design and draw—an outfit that represents our “new creation” life in Christ. Encourage them to be detailed in what each color or decoration on their outfit means—use Ephesians 6:13- 17 and Revelation 7:13-14 and 19:8 to get started with ideas. Then use these costumes to discuss how we actually “wear” our new righteousness after being saved into a new life through Christ.
