Are you looking for ways to show off your faith for the world to see? Do you want to find ways of livening up your fashion and getting some new pieces for the summer? If so, then you need to invest in some Christian apparel!
Doing so can help you cast a bright light in this dark world. John 8:12 says "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life". Let's use that light of life to our advantage!
See below for an in-depth guide on the numerous benefits there are to show your faith with Christian apparel.
1. Unique Fashion Sense
There's a complexity to the fashion trends that take over the marketplace. While everyone loves the way they look and wants in on the trend, they don't want to wear the same thing everyone else is wearing.
If you choose to invest in Christian apparel, you're sure to have unique pieces that your friends and family have never seen before.
Contrary to popular belief, Christian apparel isn't just shirts and hoodies with Bible verses written on them. If you're shopping with the right brand, it can also offer you things like:
Wristbands & More
Shop through our faith-based collections and you'll see the originality and uniqueness that our pieces can offer you.
We can help you add some Christian apparel for any situation. If you're looking to add faith-based apparel to your work clothes, you can invest in one of our briefcases. If you want Christian apparel to wear to the gym, give our workout clothing a look.
While everyone else at the gym is wearing clothing brands that the marketplace has pushed on them, you will be wearing inspirational pieces that will stand out.
2. Conversation Starter
If you're a believer and a Christian, then there's no denying the calling that God has put on your life: you are to go out to the world and spread the gospel.
Jesus exemplified this perfectly when he walked the Earth. For evidence of this, look no further than Matthew 4:19:
"And he saith unto them, follow me, and I will make you fishers of men."
Follow him. Live in his image. Become an active fisher of men. These are the foundations of our faith. But in an ever-changing world that gets busier by the second, how can you start that initial conversation with the lost? Perhaps your Christian apparel can open the door.
We'll give you an example. Say you bring one of our ILJ Men's rustic leather briefcases into work and one of your coworkers notices our "ILJ" logo.
They might ask you what "ILJ" stands for, at which point you'll tell them it stands for "I Love Jesus". That right there is enough of a door to open the conversation. In fact, many times, you might see others jump on that opportunity to ask you about your faith, the church you attend, and so much more.
3. Builds Your Network of Believers
As important as it is to spread the gospel and become a fisher of men, the Bible also talks about the importance of building a strong support system. In other words: finding like-minded believers that can hold you accountable.
Proverbs 13:20 says: "The righteous should choose his friends carefully, for the way of the wicked leads them astray."
Sure, go out of your comfort zone and extend a helping hand to the lost. But always have a strong network of Christian friends that you can gain power and momentum from.
In the same way that faith-based clothing can be a conversation starter to lead the lost to Jesus, it can help you find Christian friends.
Others might see your ILJ apparel and stop you to show support. It's always comforting to know that you have fellow believers at work, at the gym, serving you coffee, or wherever else you may find them.
4. Great for Gifts
Are you wanting to give your workout-crazed pastor a gift, but never sure of what kind of gift would be deemed appropriate? Do you want to get a gift for a friend who was just baptized?
If so, then things like Christian apparel and Christian jewelry are perfect for those situations (and others like them).
Each of our items is created with high-quality materials and crafted with care. We're looking to help believers make a statement, as well as promote helpful and healthy conversations about Jesus.
5. Spread Hope Throughout Your Community
As we mentioned before, sometimes it's reassuring to see others in your daily life that wear Christian apparel to show their faith. Every time you wear faith-based pieces, you're spreading a little hope.
Christian apparel is a great way to be a light of the world, just like we talked about in the intro.
God doesn't call us to spread His word timidly. He wants us to break through the chains of society and give hope to the hopeless. Sometimes that includes bringing a jolt to believers that have fallen from the path as well.
