“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” (Romans 12:2)
The world uses dress and fashion to project its spirit and morals, its ethics and values (or lack of them). Our way of dressing tells us something of our control or influence by this world. Winkie Pratney observed, “As time draws to a close, dress will become more and more perverted. We must stand as Christians and dress in a way that will speak, as loudly as our words, what is clean and valuable and real.” Every day, the way you dress will say something to the world about Jesus and you.
Now, you never have to dress to impress. God has already set you apart as different from the people around you. Look at yourself! Your fingerprints are different. Your voiceprints and brainwave channel (I watched Discovery Channel) are different from anyone else’s in the world. Even the hair on your head is not quite the same as that of your twin.
No Christian has to put on “special clothes” to feel like a special person. You know you are already. You can afford to dress in a way that is clean and comfortable, without having to follow the ways of the world around you, whether is it the K-Pop culture or the subculture in rejection of it. Remember: What you look like will tell the world something about God. Make it count. Learn to dress in a way that honors Christ.
I have 3 simple basic suggestions on dressing: 1) Be clean. Clothes can be old, second-hand, cheap, or very ordinary but they should never stay dirty. Keep them washed as neat and clean as your life-style allows; 2) Be simple. Avoid complex trimmings, complicated styles. Let your dress preach the kind of Gospel Jesus said was so simple a child could understand it; and 3) Be sensible. Don’t follow the latest fad just because it is ‘in’ the moment. Fashion-slavery is a sign of a people-pleasing, worldly heart.
In your dressing be clean, simple and sensible.
THINK BIG. START SMALL. GO DEEP.
