Dressing in modesty is especially important to consider, as a Godly woman who are in their walk with CHRIST. It does not mean that man should ignore the way of their clothing, because both genders do have the responsibility to clothe themselves in modesty as a follower of CHRIST, when walking into the world. Where the world wears, would you clothe in the same way as theirs?
Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. James 4:4
Ladies, do you wear mini skirts? Why do you wear it? Is it because other people wear it; that you think it is cool and fashionable?
Let’s look at this scripture below:
What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
As a follower of CHRIST, you are representing CHRIST. When you are dressing in a worldly manner, you should question yourself whether you belong to the world or belong to GOD. If you belong to the world, you would dress like unto them. But if you belong to GOD, you would not follow in the manner of the world. For whoever is the friend of the world is GOD’s enemy.
To glorify GOD is to follow HIS will-part of HIS will for us is to live in holiness (set apart) and in purity.
Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord: Hebrews 12:14
But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God’s holy people. Ephesians 5:3
Do you know that lust can be a sin committed in one’s heart?
Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart. Matthew 5:27-28
The bodies of females are normally attractive to the opposite sex and it could drive people to lust, adultery, fornication, sexual immorality, impurity and perversion, such as when the females have uncovered areas near their privacy and tight clothing.
Before you dress, ask yourself these questions “Does this clothing lead others to sin, such as lust?” and “What is my heart condition when I wear this clothing? Do I wear it to show off with pride or am I wearing it for comfort reasons, in a Godly manner?”
We should not lead others to sin because it is wrong. God sees the heart. Therefore, it is essential to examine your spiritual heart conditions. Different people may have different views on the same thing. The definition of beauty can be different for everyone.
As a Godly woman, she should NOT expose her breasts, but to well cover the area that would not show any cleavages. It is the same with the length of her skirt, that it should be long enough to cover up completely where others cannot see the under garments. The word “sexy” comes straight from the pit of hell. Are you a man pleaser or are you a pleaser of GOD? Repent for displaying immodesty if you have done so, for now is the hour of repentance!
For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ. Galatians 1:10
Let your beautiful jewels and accessories display be the fruits of the Spirit. Inner beauty reflects the outward part!
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. Galatians 5:22-23
In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; 1 Timothy 2:9
And the Lord said unto him, Now do ye Pharisees make clean the outside of the cup and the platter; but your inward part is full of ravening and wickedness. Luke 11:39
Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel; But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price. 1 Peter 3:3-4
Let’s look at these verses in regards of woman’s hair:
But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering. 1 Corinthians 11:15
For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered. 1 Corinthians 11:6
Let’s look at this verse about cross dressing:
The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the Lord thy God. Deuteronomy 22:5
Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. 1 Corinthians 6:9-10
God looks at the heart and HE is going to judge the heart of all men. The heart cannot lie and even though you are to say all the good things to GOD but inwardly you did not mean a thing, then GOD knows it. God is NOT partial and races, outer appearance, education level, economic status, reputation possibly mean nothing to HIM. Meaning nothing as in GOD just wants the heart.
And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works. Revelation 2:23
Let’s look at this verse below:
Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised. Proverbs 31:30
A person who wear the latest fashion and dolled up beautifully is deceptive. Beauty do attracts people, but what is the point of the person is all charming, yet inside of this person is full of disgusting sins that have not been dealt with? Even Satan before the fall, he was one of the more beautiful angel. Although, he turned out to be the father of lies and is full of pride.
Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee. Ezekiel 28:17
Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. John 8:44
But the mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children’s children; Psalm 103:17
Have your hearts prepared! GOD is terrible to behold when HIS wrath comes upon the people who have turned their backs to HIM and blatantly disobey HIM. Blessed are those who fear HIM.
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. Proverbs 1:7
