Our Daily Bread Devotional For September 18, 2023 : Topic - The Red Dress Project

--> Note :- Are you born again? You are never going to win the battle against the devil if you are not born again. I plead with you to give your life to Jesus today because the longer you stay in sin and remain unsaved, the more hardened your nature becomes against the purpose and the way God wants you to be for His purpose. To give your life to Jesus now, say this prayer: “Father, I come to You in the name of Jesus. I know that I am a sinner and I cannot save myself but Jesus died for me and shed His blood that I might be saved. Today, I accept Jesus as my Lord and Saviour. Jesus, I ask You to come into my heart, be my Lord, wash me with Your blood and make me whole. I believe with my heart and confess with my mouth that Jesus is my Lord. Thank You for saving me. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.” I congratulate you and welcome you to the family of God if you have sincerely said that prayer. Now you are fit to discover, know and walk in your destiny.

Bible in a Year:

Make sacred garments for your brother Aaron to give him dignity and honor.

Today's Scripture : Exodus 28:1–8,40–41


Exodus 19:3Numbers 10:10 contains the account of the covenant (treaty) between God and Israel given on Mount Sinai. Exodus 28 provides detailed directions for the priests’ garments. The priests were the people’s representatives before God and were to be holy men worthy of the office. They performed the daily sacrifices, maintained the tabernacle, and demonstrated how to follow God. The high priest, Aaron, oversaw the other priests and Levites. His garments would “distinguish him as a priest set apart for [God’s] service” (v. 3 nlt).

Message : The Red Dress project was conceived by British artist Kirstie Macleod and has become an exhibit in museums and galleries around the world. For thirteen years, eighty-four pieces of burgundy silk traveled across the globe to be embroidered upon by more than three hundred women (and a handful of men). The pieces were then constructed into a gown, telling the stories of each contributing artist—many of whom are marginalized and impoverished.

Like the Red Dress, the garments worn by Aaron and his descendants were made by many “skilled workers” (Exodus 28:3). God’s instructions for the priestly attire included details that told the collective story of Israel, including engraving the names of the tribes on onyx stones that would sit on the priests’ shoulders “as a memorial before the Lord” (v. 12). The tunics, embroidered sashes, and caps gave the priests “dignity and honor” as they served God and led the people in worship (v. 40).

As new covenant believers in Jesus, we—together—are a priesthood of believers, serving God and leading one another in worship (1 Peter 2:4–59); Jesus is our high priest (Hebrews 4:14). Though we don’t wear any particular clothing to identify ourselves as priests, with His help, we “clothe [ourselves] with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience” (Colossians 3:12).

Reflect & Pray

Which of the attributes from Colossians do you most need to put on today? How else has God “outfitted” you for service to Him?

Please clothe me, Jesus, in compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.
