Hello dear sisters. The other day someone asked me, "Why do you dress so old fashioned, can't you be modern and modest?" and I asked "well what do you mean by modest?" her answer was this "you know so that you just look like everyone else". That's just it! Sisters we don't want to look like everyone else, we are living in a fallen age and as Christians we shouldn't desire to look like everyone else because most of everyone else don't have ANY standards on the way you should dress, or act even. We as Christians should strive to be set apart for the Lord, we should strive to act, dress and radiate the look of a Christian women.
So what is this look? What is the look of a Christian women? Surely it isn't the look of everyone else, or the look of the world. If you saw a women wearing skin tight jeans, a low cut top and huge jewelry would you be able to guess that that women was a Christian? Of course not. We as Christians want the world to see we are different from them, we are striving to do God's will and we LOOK and ACT like Christians.
1 Timothy 2:9-10
Likewise also that women should adorn themselves in respectable apparel, with modesty and
self-control, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly attire, but with what is proper for
women who profess godliness—with good works.
The Bible calls us to dress modestly, to not only be covered up but to not dress extravagantly, I would say MOST (if not all) the "trends" of today go completely against what the Bible says here. What the Bible commands is that we NOT dress with costly, extravagant clothing or flashy, ornate jewelry. But rather the Bible calls us to dress simply as Christians
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing
you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
(different translation )And do not imitate this world, but be transformed by the renovation of your
minds, and you shall distinguish what is the good, acceptable and perfect will of God.
I do not ask that you take them out of the world, but that you keep them from the evil one. They
are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth.
As you sent me into the world, so I have sent them into the world.
These Bible clearly express the Lord's will for us to be IN this world but NOT Of IT. Being of this world is to except immorality and sin as normal and acceptable. Being of this world is to not respect the body the Lord gave you and to completely disregard the Bible and what it commands.
Modern: of or pertaining to present and recent time;
Old Fashioned: having the conservative behavior, ways, ideas, or tastes of earlier times
These are the definitions of the two words, being old fashioned is to be conservative which is what the Lord calls us to be: Conservative, not worldly. To be modern is pertaining to the present, but the present is corrupt! We live in a day and age were ANYTHING goes and everything is accepted. So sisters instead of striving to look like everybody else let us strive to look like women of God, like Christians!
