Psst! Don't tell the supermodels, but... (whisper) they are there to make the clothes look good, not vice versa. Clothes are not designed for the model. The model is selected for the clothes.
When we speak of clothes spiritually, we are talking about righteousness or unrighteous. And our clothes are filthy rags (Isaiah 64:6). Our deeds are evil. Our thoughts are impure. Our attitudes are selfish. Those are the clothes that "match" us. The problem is rags can't get us in to see the King and they keep us from having a relationship with Him. This relationship is precisely what the King created us to have. Yet, we are not even worthy to enter His presence.
So, His Son, Jesus Christ, whose robes are holy and pure, came to our wicked world and lived a flawless life. His clothes were never stained by sin, yet He died a sinner's death by execution on a cross. The Lord of Creation was buried in a tomb. Until three days later He rose again. Death had no authority over Him because death is the wage of sin. Having never sinned, Christ took our punishment on Himself and paid it in full. Having done everything His Father commanded Him, Christ was able to provide His righteous robes (Isiaah 61:10) to me and you and as many as would believe in Him so that we may live in relationship with God, forever.
Next time you see a supermodel, maybe think about the Only Real Supermodel -- Jesus Christ the righteous (1 John 2:1).
