That coat of many colors is now one

Joseph’s coat of many colors; people have tried to envision what it would have looked like and the only thing I can say is that it must have stood out from all the other coats.

Joseph’s coat was a symbol of his father’s love, but his father’s love became something that his brothers hated. And no matter how much that coat cost Jacob, in the eyes of Joseph’s brothers that sign of love would end up costing Joseph.

Likewise, our spiritual Father has given us a coat to wear – a coat that is a symbol of his love, a coat of one color (John 3:16); but we must remember that as this coat stands out from all other coats people will hate it and it will cost us, but we must continue to wear it as a reminder of who we are to our Father (John 15:18-19; 1 John 3:13).

For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ.” (Galatians 3:26-27)

“…So he said to me, “These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.” (Revelation 7:14)
