Galatians 3:27 For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ.

Galatians 3:27 For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ.

Christ is the clothing of the priests (Galatians 3:27; Romans 13:14). Although we have been baptized into Christ and are already in Christ (Romans 6:3; Galatians 3:27), we must still put Him on; to put on Christ is to live by Christ (Galatians 2:20) and to live out Christ (Philippians 1:21), thus magnifying Christ (Philippians 1:20). Putting on Christ is the same as putting on the weapons of light (Romans 13:12), indicating that Christ is the weapons of light for the warfare between the Spirit and the lusts of the flesh (Romans 6:13; Galatians 5:17). (S2015 ITERO, msg. 3 outline)

The priestly garments, being mainly for glory and for beauty, signify the expression of Christ’s divine glory and human beauty. Glory is related to Christ’s divinity, His divine attributes (John 1:14; Hebrews 1:3), and beauty, to Christ’s humanity, His human virtues. Christ’s divinity, typified by the gold of the priestly garments, is for glory, and His humanity, typified by the blue, purple, and scarlet strands and the fine linen, is for beauty. A life that expresses Christ with the divine glory and the human beauty sanctifies us and qualifies us to be the priesthood. (Exodus 28:2, footnote 2, Recovery Version Bible)
