Many times, people ask, how should l dress? What should I wear? What does the Bible say about dressing? What is a Christian expected to wear, should a Christian girl wear trouser and so on, what does the Bible say about dressing?
Over the years, Deuteronomy 22:5 has been a debate for several churches.
‘The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the Lord thy God.’
What is a Christian expected to wear.
Consider; 1 Timothy 2:9-10
‘In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works’.
In deciding on what to wear, a good Christian should ask the following questions:
Does my clothing illustrate my surrender to the Lord and my commitment to holiness?
Have I focused on my heart, or only my wardrobe?
1 Samuel 16:7
Am I making clothing choices consistent with transformed thinking?
Do I live with contentment regarding clothing purchases?
Am I practicing modesty and discretion in what I wear?
1 Peter 5:5
Do I dress with dignity and strength?
Are my clothing choices bringing glory to God?
1 Corinthians 6:19-20
1 Corinthians 10:31
We are not our own. Our choices should reflect Christ’s Lordship in our lives and our desire to honor Him.
