JESUS IS THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE
Modest Dress for Christians.
Being deceived by thinking we can wear whatever we want to, and its alright. Whats acceptable to the world is not acceptable to GOD.
Mind, heart, intentions and your motivations determine your wardrobe.
How should we dress as Christians?
We should be careful how we dress, inappropriate clothing we wear may offend, or cause our brothers, and sisters to stumble.
Men, we are responsible for our own desires and temptations GOD said, we would not be tempted above what we could handle, and he will always give us a way out. There will be times in the world, and in church, that you will be uncomfortable around women and men, who are not dressed in a modest, and GODLY way. Remember Jesus wants us to come as we are, there will be people convicted to come to church, and may not yet be saved. They may not be dressed modestly because they don’t realize they are offensive. Be responsible and act in a GODLY manner. Treat these people with love, God will do the rest. God will convict them to dress modestly once they truly commit their lives to JESUS CHRIST . If they continue in offense, the pastor of the church will have to tell them the truth about the way they are dressing.
Women, you will find yourselves in the same situations. Be responsible and act in a GODLY manner.
1 CORINTHIANS 10: 13 There hath no temptation taken you, but such as is common to man : but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able: but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
Men should dress appropriately, making their sisters and brothers in JESUS CHRIST, feel comfortable when they are around them. Men deceive themselves if they dress inappropriately, and think God approves.
Women should dress in a way, they do not entice or tempt their brothers in JESUS CHRIST, or make them feel uncomfortable ,when they are around them. They should not come to church, or be out in the world as sex objects. Women deceive themselves, if they think wearing bikinis, short shorts, short skirts and dresses, tight pants, open topped blouses and dresses, to church, beach, or anywhere out in public is approved by GOD.
Expensive jewelry is a way of saying, look what I have, this is prideful, and worldly minded. Does this make you mad to hear someone say this? Just think what you could do, for the needy, with this money. Is it one of your riches you are storing upon this earth? Can you take it with ,when you die? What if you used the money, instead of on expensive jewelry, to help someone in need, or somehow use it better the kingdom of GOD. Then, would you not be storing your riches in heaven?
There are many things in our life, that is, of this world, such as worldly traditions, material things and fleshly lusts, that keeps us from putting our full focus on JESUS. We need to get in the word of GOD, and pray that these worldly desires will be taken from us and that our eyes will be opened to the truth.
JESUS said I am the way, the truth, and the life.
This modest way of dressing will apply to all Christians that claim to obey and follow JESUS CHRIST.
