Scripture Reading:- 1 Peter 3:1-7

Topic:- We Are Addressed The Way We Dress

Text:- 1 Peter 3:4

The following conversation took place between a grandmother and her grand-daughter:
Grandma: Mutoni, where are you going?
Mutoni: Grandma, I am going to Church.
Grandma: Really? Please come and sit down and let’s talk for a minute before you go. I think we still have ample time before the Church service begins? Don’t we?
Mutoni: Yes, about an hour.
Grandma: The way you are dressed, in fact, you look very sexy.
Mutoni: [Smiling] Thank you very much Ma.
Grandma: Hmmmm, Mutoni, I can see you love that compliment. Please tell me, do you need someone to have sex with you?
Mutoni: Ooh, noo! Grandma. Why this question?
Grandma: If you do not need someone to have sex with you, then, why do you dress ‘sexy’?
Mutoni: There’s nothing to worry about, Grannie. I just want to….
Grandma: [cuts in]… Dressed to kill, as usual! Mutoni, a Godly girl should never feel proud or swollen-headed when someone tells her that she looks ‘sexy’. In fact, it’s a very bad and insulting compliment.

The intention of dressing sexy is to arouse men. That’s all. That’s the reason why prostitutes dress this way. They dress this way because they want someone to have sex with them and pay them.
They do everything possible to ‘look sexy’ and attractive. Not to just one person, but to the entire men in town!
They expose their breasts, they wear things that will reveal all their endowed curves, and even private parts of their body, JUST to look sexy and attractive to men. So that they will not rest until they have a carnal knowledge of them, for money.
Please, Mutoni, are you also trying to look that way so that you will be attractive to men for sex? Mutoni looked down, and was speechless.
Grandma: [continues]. This is the reason why you are not getting a husband. Do you still wonder why suitable suitors rush to take you to bed…. then, after saying ‘you are hot,’ they dump you?
They feel that you cannot stay with ‘one man’ alone. Do you now realize that I, your Grandma, am not the one using witchcraft against you?

You are young, fit and attractive, although you are a Christian yet you always look so worldly. When you dress like this to Church, the probability of bringing even the Pastor down is very high. But remember that, “Woe betide the one by whom a righteous man is made to fall.” I know you can remember this Scripture very well. Well, my beloved Grand-daughter, I am done. You can now go.
Mutoni: Thank you very much, Grandma. I have never looked at it like this before. From today onward, I promise never to dress again to look sexy. I will rather dress to look beautiful and glorify GOD with my dressing. Thank you very much Ma.
Grandma: You are welcome, my Dear. [Seeing that Mutoni started going towards her room, she said]. But, are you not going to Church anymore?
Mutoni: I will go Grannie. I just want to change my dress, first.
Grandma: May God bless you for doing that.

Prayer Points:-
1. Oh Lord God, help me to be holy in all my actions and attitude henceforth, in the name of Jesus Christ.
2. I refuse to dress in a worldly ways henceforth, help me oh Lord God to dress to glorify You, in the name of Jesus Christ.
3. My life time, I will give You my life time henceforth by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.

Have A Lovely Saturday!

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or visit TACN or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
