These studies do not tell you what the Bible says. The scriptures given direct you to specific topics. The questions are intended to help you focus on the study. No answers are given. You have to read and search the scriptures for the answers. We encourage you to use Bible helps such as concordances and commentaries. However, scholars and theologians often disagree on interpretation and application. The best study help comes from God. Pray. Allow yourself to be honest with your reactions, but don't jump to conclusions. It takes time to read and meditate on all the Bible says on various topics. Feel free to ask questions in your prayers. You will be amazed to discover that God does answer the sincere seeker. You will also be surprised that the Bible may not say what you might think it does on many subjects. Keep a notebook. A loose leaf one would make it possible to add thoughts and additional information as you learn more about different subjects. Welcome to an exciting search.  

Bible Study Guide:

Clothe Yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ

By Scarlett Stough


To prepare for this Bible study, please read the women in Christ commentary, Put Off. Put On.

The Greek word enduo refers to the action of putting on clothing, "literally to sink into." [The New Strong's Expanded Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible, Number 1746.] It is sometimes translated into English as "clothe," "clothed," or "putting or put on."

1. Romans 13:12-14. How can we guard ourselves against falling into gratifying the desires of the sinful nature? What does it mean to you to be clothed with the Lord Jesus Christ?

2. 1 Corinthians 15:34-58. What motivations do you find in this chapter to "stop sinning" and "stand firm?" What is sin? [See I John 3:4-6.] How do we have victory through Christ?

3. Galatians 3:21-29; John 5:39-40. How are we "clothed with Christ?" What does Christ do for us the law of God cannot? When we are told to stop sinning, what is it we are supposed to stop doing?

4. Ephesians 4:17-32; 5:1-21. What must we "put off" and what are we to "put on?"

5. Ephesians 6:10-18; Ephesians 3:14-21. Whose power do we "put on" and how do we use it so we can struggle against and not fall prey to evil?

6. Colossians 3:1-17. How can we mentally prepare to do battle against those desires of the sinful nature? What good qualities should we be doing instead of those things we are instructed to "put to death?"

7. 1 Thessalonians 5:1-11. Since we have salvation through Jesus, why do we still need to be alert and self-controlled and not asleep?

8. 2 Corinthians 5:1-10; Revelation 19:6-9; Ephesians 5:25-27. How is the Bride of Christ made ready for the wedding?
