In this wicked day and age, as a part of the Church of Jesus Christ, women of GOD: we must present ourselves with a pure heart in all of our ways. We must strive after holiness, for The LORD has said: “Be holy, for I am holy”. We must represent Jesus 100% when out there in that world, and we had better believe that this world is watching us! If you are a woman of GOD who speaks as a representative of Christ then you have to meet the mark! You cannot walk one way and talk another. We are to love everyone and to pray for our enemies and for those who persecute us. We are held to a high standard when we say we are followers of Christ. The eyes of The LORD are upon the righteous and His ears are open to our prayers, but His face is against them who do evil. He is the searcher of our hearts and He sees ALL THINGS. He is El Roi: The GOD Who sees us. He knows your heart and it’s true intentions. We are to sanctify The LORD in our hearts and pay Him the respect He deserves as a Holy GOD! If we love Jesus, then we will honor Him and obey Him.
This world is watching us, looking for a Savior. Jesus is the Way but many are hesitant to follow after Him if they’ve seen a bad example of how Godly people are supposed to be and act. We cannot say with our mouths that we represent Christ when our outward appearance or our inward expression speaks otherwise. When we have such a hunger and a thirst to please our LORD, there is an inner desire present that seeks to outwardly represent Him! Ladies, as women in this wicked seductive and perverse age, we cannot be flaunting our bodies being a stumbling block to Brothers in Christ or other men around us. We must be modest and cover ourselves to the point of respect, honor, dignity, and holiness which represents Christ appropriately. We must honor ourselves and others in this way!
Every action and every word spoken must be in light of our love for our LORD and King! He is the One we are aiming and striving to please and He alone holds the reigns to our hearts. When we walk in such a way where every thought is held captive to the obedience of Christ and every step is taken in the fear of The LORD, there will be no second guessing if we are representing Christ appropriately or honorably. It will just flow. Women of GOD I encourage you to be modest in all of your ways, holding every word and every thought captive to His obedience and to be mindful of the possibility that you may be a stumbling block unto another person simply by your walk and how you dress. We must represent Christ in holiness and in purity! We must strive to meet the mark of righteousness in every way, for our LORD and King is coming back for a spotless Bride not tattered and torn, without spot nor blemish. We must be pure. We must be Holy. We must be honorable. We must be righteous. We must be beautiful in The LORD! We are His precious sacred jewels. We are His Chosen Remnant. We are His daughters. Therefore WE MUST REPRESENT A HOLY GOD in purity and in honor, in dignity and in royalty.
📯”Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives; While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear. 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. For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands: Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement.”📯
📯1 Peter 3:1-6📯
📯”Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life. She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands. She is like the merchants’ ships; she bringeth her food from afar. She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens. She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard. She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms. She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night. She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff. She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy. She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet. She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple. Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land. She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant. Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come. She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness. She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness. Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all. Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.”📯Proverbs 31:10-31📯
