Romans 12:1 – I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, [which is] your reasonable service.
An Immodestly Dressed Woman Works For Satan whether she knows it or not. An immodest woman has NO FEAR OF GOD and NO RESPECT FOR HERSELF or others around her. Each time a woman goes out into the public sector dressed immodestly, she’s actually being sent out on an assignment by Satan. Her assignment is to seduce the minds and imaginations of men, women and children to cause them to be unholy and separated from God. When a woman says that she “loves God” and dresses immodestly she is actually mocking God even if she doesn’t realize it.
AN IMMODEST WOMAN
- Cause men to sin by lusting after her/ looking at her nakedness
- Cause little girls to sin by emulating her
- Cause other women to sin by envying her and emulating her
- Cause marital problems by sewing seeds of discord
- Invokes jealously, low self esteem, anger and hatred in others.
1 Timothy 2:9 – In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel with shamefacedness and sobriety…
Every woman who claims to love God should ask herself, “What message am I trying to convey or what am I trying to accomplish by what I’m choosing to wear?” Does your clothing illustrate your commitment to holiness (Romans 12:1; Titus 2:11-12; 1 Timothy 2:10)? Women must distinguish between the world’s evaluation of beauty and the true loveliness of inward character not only in how they dress but also in their behavior. Cultivating holiness should be the priority of every woman. Did you know that a very effective way to minister to others is in how you dress? A woman can draw others closer to holiness or draw them away from God in just one second according to the way she dresses.
Cultural discretion is a key component. Just as Paul acknowledged what was communicated by the Greco-Roman culture and warned followers of the Messiah at that time not to follow those fashion patterns, women must be aware of the messages and values clothing might communicate in their own culture and carefully consider how women of other cultures often emulate you! If you are a woman who enjoys dressing immodestly in public to gain attention, to make others jealous, or for any reason at all, repent and put some clothes on! It’s not too late.
~ As a jewel of gold in a swine’s snout, so is a fair woman which is without discretion. Proverbs 11:22
