The Wardrobe of Christ: Putting on the Character of Jesus is a six-week Bible study to help you put on the character of Christ as revealed in Col. 3:12-14. Written by Carrie Rogers – a gal who has a closet full of different ‘hats!’ As a blogger, author, women’s ministry director, wife and mother of three, Carrie helps women dig into God’s Word and apply the blessings of a relationship with Christ.
Here’s what I liked about the study:
The study begins where Scripture does – in the Garden of Eden! Carrie helps students understand God’s original design for women, how we wrecked our wardrobe, and how God clothes us anew in his righteousness through Christ!
The study digs into both the Old and New Testament, despite being centered around the pivotal passage in Colossians 3.

Listen as Carrie shares her heart on this important passage of Scripture and what it means for women of God:
Each day, women everywhere are faced with one looming question …
one question that everything else hinges on,
one decision that sets the course for the entire day …
What should I wear today?
Ok. So maybe what we put on everyday isn’t THAT important … or it is?
One day, while I was pursuing my wardrobe options, the quiet voice of the Lord began talking to me about the importance of what I put on each day. Although I would have loved some “what should I wear today” advice, I realized that God wasn’t talking to me about what I needed to put on physically. His focus, not surprisingly, was geared toward the spiritual. The next few weeks, God began leading me to many familiar verses from His Word that deal with the issue of “putting on”… and so my studying began.
The Wardrobe of Christ: Putting on the Character of Jesus provides an in-depth look at what it means to “clothe yourself with Jesus.”(Romans 13:14) By examining each virtue listed in Colossians 3:12-14, you will discover that in Christ, you can put on compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, patience, forgiveness, and love.
This six week Bible study is broken into five daily lessons, and is loaded with personal application from Day 1. It’s great for personal or group study (with a free Leader’s Guide available to download on my website.)
God has a wardrobe picked out just for you. Will you choose to put it on today?
“So, chosen by God for this new life of love, dress in the wardrobe God picked out for you: compassion, kindness, humility, quiet strength, discipline. Be even-tempered, content with second place, quick to forgive an offense. Forgive as quickly and completely as the Master forgave you. And regardless of what else you put on, wear love. It’s your basic, all-purpose garment. Never be without it.” Colossians 3:12-14 The Message
