TEXT: MATTHEW 5:14-15
(14) Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
(15) Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
KEY VERSE: 2 CORINTHIANS 7:1
Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.
Christians are guided by the scripture on how they should live their lives including dressing. The people of the world say they have freedom in dressing and go about dressing in nakedness, claiming they are not dressing for anybody else; but they are on the street where everybody walks. Even in the secular world there is limitation to freedom of speech. Does this mean that you are free to dress as you want to the extent that others are offended or defiled by your actions?
Christian dressing should not be according to the pattern of the world. Painting of face with lipsticks, powder, etc., and nude dressing are the pattern of harlots - Proverbs 7:10, and Christians must avoid it. They must not copy the fashions and designs of the world aimed at corrupting the society. The fashion of the world passes away - 1 Corinthians 7:31.
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.
Wearing of trousers (pants) by women is condemned by God no matter the style -Deuteronomy 22:5. Trousers are associated with men even in Bible days. It was called Hosen and the three men thrown into Nebuchadnezzar furnace wore I -Daniel 3:21. All these tight fitting clothes by men and women should be avoided. The use of jewelry: earrings, necklaces, chains and wedding rings have been condemned by the scripture and should be avoided by Christians waiting for the coming of their Savior in rapture - Genesis 35:1-5, Exodus 33:4-6.
It is disobedience for a woman to pray or prophesy or even come into the presence of God with her head uncovered. The Bible says if she will not cover her head let her be shorn and if it is a shame for a woman to be shorn, then she should cover her head - 1 Corinthians 11:6. Head covering is a symbol of power upon the woman’s head because of angels; orderliness is golden - 1 Corinthians 11:10. Judge in yourselves; is it comely that a woman pray unto God uncovered?
Cleanse yourselves from all these filthiness and be holy.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: God desires orderliness in Christian activities and dressing.
SONG FOR THE DAY: You fill Heaven and the earth, there is no one like you Lord 2x
BIBLE READING FOR THE DAY: 2 Samuel 13-14; Luke 20:1-26
