Modesty Pt. 2

Here's the second part to the post I did on modesty last week.

"But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: Which in times past were not a people, but are now the people of God; which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy. Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul; Having your converstaion honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evil does, that they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation."

I Peter 2:9-12 KJB

"Do you really want your dress choices in life to be determined by media fads and pop-stars who can't even stay out of rehab long enough to finish a concert tour? Is this really the crowd you want to model your life and future choices after? Obviously not.

So, once again, you have the world's system and God's teaching. Behind the world's system is a bunch of lies, deception, and a lifestyle that will lead you seriously downhill. Behiind God's teaching, you have a loveing Heavenly Father Who longs to bless your life and future and Who longs to fulfill your heart's biggest desires.

Yes, God cares about our dress choices, and He gives us a Bible full of guiding principles upon which to base these choices. This is big stuff, and should challenge you to really think. What you wear is much more than a matter of rules or simple decisions. This isn't about just 'doing what you're told'.

No, we're going to dig a lot deeper than that. We're going to actually discover the serious heart of God on this matter. We're going to uncover the principles that form our beliefs and then our choices. It's one thing to say, 'Dress Modestly!' It's another thing entirely to consider the wealth of information God gives us behinf that one statement. These are some really great reasons why you should choose to dress God's way, and we're about the find out what they are!

Stop finding your identity in what you wear. That's what everybody else does. You are more than what you wear. In fact, what you wear is actually a reflection of who you really are. We'll see more of that next week"
