Sexy is DEAD!

The way I dressed in high school would have given you NO indication that I grew up in church most of my life. It was awful!  Cleavage out, mini-skirts, tight pants, you name it! If it wasn’t somewhat revealing I thought it was old lady…how foolish I was.

Then God touched my mind and I began to truly seek to know God for myself. And He changed everything about me, especially my wardrobe. When I became filled with the love of God I wanted to represent God in a Holy way. 19 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?20 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).

So that meant no more cleavage, no more mini-shirts, no more revealing clothing. Why? Sexy dressing does NOT honor God who lives inside of me.

Even as a mature Christian, I still had and have a lot of growing to do and am still checking myself, and learning to dress in a way that becomes holiness. When Esosa and I were courting, we had planned to go on a date, so I bought what I thought was a nice outfit with what I thought were long shorts. Esosa came to pick me up…we got in the car and he was about to start the ignition and he paused. He stopped and said “I need you to go change your clothes”…I was so shocked! I thought I was covered-up…but the shorts stopped in the middle of my thighs, leaving most of my legs exposed. I changed and returned the outfit later. A true man of God wants a true woman of God…PERIOD. A true woman of God seeks virtuousness and holiness…PERIOD. So even though in my mind the outfit was not revealing,  a man’s eye saw something different, and I did not want to cause my brother  to stumble. Romans 14 says,12 So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God. 13 Let us not therefore judge one another any more: but judge this rather, that no man put a stumblingblock or an occasion to fall in his brother’s way.

So ladies do all you can to stay COVERED…even a little cleavage is too much. We have to do all we can to be HOLY, not try to get as close to the world as we can and still be Christian. We have to come up to God’s standard . That means not participating in all the latest trends, that means putting camisoles under revealing tops, that means NOT buying things if they are too short. We have to live the word and DO the word.

Yes be stylish, and Yes stay covered…God is in you and around you, represent Him well.

Let’s set a new standard for ourselves and those we influence…
