 They put on, therefore, as such, as elect, holy, beloved (Christ being their life), the character of Christ (Colossians 3 by J.N. Darby)
 The putting on of these qualities is in the consciousness of the blessed place before God expressed in the words “elect of God, holy and beloved.” It is as such. Nor can we do it otherwise. It is in the sense of this wondrous favor that grace develops itself in our hearts. (Colossians 3 by J.N. Darby)
 Hence, another garment, so to speak, is to be “put on” which manifests the character of the new man. This character change is illustrated typically in Elijah and Elisha. Elijah is a type of Christ who ascended into heaven and Elisha is a type of the believer. (The Believer's Identification With the Death and Resurrection of Christ by B. Anstey)
