Why would someone wear a T-shirt with a cross or a Bible verse, showing the world that he is a Christian?
Why are Christian and religious T-shirts and clothing becoming more popular and widespread in many cultures around the world?
Our foundation, as always, is to go back to what Jesus said:
“You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they
put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.” – Matt 5:14-15 and
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” – Matt 28:19-20
In the past few decades wearing a T-shirt has become a terrific way to make a statement. To advertise or promote something you stand for, and even to rebel or protest something you’re against. Generally, most people would choose clothing with statements that they can identify with. Recently I very much identified with a statement on a pajama top in a shop. It said: “Get me some coffee and no one gets hurt!” 🙂
So what do you identify with? What are you passionate about? What is the “light” in you that shines out and you can’t hide, even if you tried?
As for me; I am passionate about Jesus. And I want to see people meet Him and know Him for who He is. And consequently I see Christian Clothing as a powerful tool to shine light in a dark world.
