Wear your tee as an encouragement that God accepts us just as we are. He does not ask for our striving and efforts and good works - all will be made well in Him. Come as you are.
I personally wear a small, but chose a medium because I like my shirts roomy)! Sizing chart is attached! As it is unisex, the sleeves on my medium are a bit long on my little short arms, but I cuff them back once and have no problems with them coming down.
Each shirt comes with an insert card that shares the story behind the design. It reads:
"In 1828, at age 32, Charlotte Elliott suffered a serious illness that left her semi-invalid. Depression stemmed from this and one night, years later, she lay awake, distressed, feeling uselessness and doubting her salvation. The next day, as she reflected, she set her mind on truth to conquer those lies by the grace of God. She “gathered up in her soul the grand certainties, not of her emotions, but of her salvation: her Lord, His power, His promise” (Lutheran Hymnal Handbook). Pen met paper and the hymn “Just as I am, without one plea” was the result. Her reminder to herself has become such comfort to countless believers, as we see we are not alone as Christians who experience doubt and uncertainty in their faith. But, we meet that fear by declaring that Christ invites us to come to Him, just as we are.
Just as I am, without one plea, but that thy blood was shed for me, and that thou bidd'st me come to thee, O Lamb of God, I come, I come.
Just as I am, and waiting not to rid my soul of one dark blot, to thee, whose blood can cleanse each spot, O Lamb of God, I come, I come.
Just as I am, though tossed about with many a conflict, many a doubt, fightings and fears within, without, O Lamb of God, I come, I come.
Just as I am, thou wilt receive, wilt welcome, pardon, cleanse, relieve; because thy promise I believe, O Lamb of God, I come, I come."
