Who Is Your Dressing Glorifying – Seeds Of Destiny, 21st August 2022
SCRIPTURE: And, behold, there met him. a woman with the attire of an harlot, and subtil of heart. Proverbs 7:10.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: In our world today, you cannot even differentiate a Christian from an unbeliever when it comes to dressing.
Your appearance is very critical to your identity. Your appearance speaks volumes about your personality. As a child of God, God expects you to dress with decency and decorum. Our dressing style is meant to glorify God, not the devil.
Unfortunately, in our world today, you cannot even differentiate a Christian from an unbeliever when it comes to dressing.
In Proverbs chapter seven and in verse ten, King Solomon talked about the attire of the harlot:
And, behold, there met him a woman with the attire of an harlot, and subtil of heart.
Yet, some people would say that there is no attire peculiar to harlots or commercial sex workers.
The question is: what is the attire of a harlot? The same way organizations market their products, the attire of a harlot is the attire that markets the flesh as goods to be sold and used or a product to be merchandised.
In this end time, there are many people who are marketing the flesh by wearing seductive clothes that expose the cleavages or contours of the body. It seems the tighter these clothes look on their bodies, the better for them. These clothes are usually tight at the back, tight at the chest and also at the sides, revealing every imaginable detail about their body shapes. They do this in order to properly market their flesh. They wear these clothes to night clubs, cinema halls and even to church. They do it as though God is not watching. Why do we deceive ourselves? Why do you want to continue singing and clapping in church yet planning to end in hell by the way you dress and live?
Beloved, who is your dressing glorifying God or the devil?
Remember this: In our world today, you cannot even differentiate a Christian from an unbeliever when it comes to dressing.
1. Refuse to dress like an unbeliever.
2. Do not dishonour God with your dressing or lifestyle.
PRAYER: Lord, let my lifestyle reveal You to my world. I receive the grace to dress with decency and decorum, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
