My daughter loves fashion. At one time she thought she wanted to be a fashion designer. She used to sketch designs in little sketch book I had given her after spending hours pouring through magazines. I told her I would support her passion as long as she followed one standard…
Everything you designed and everything you wear must bring honor and glory to God.
She’s since moved on with her career ambitions; however, she still maintains that standard regarding her own wardrobe.
We need to stop looking at magazines or Hollywood to determine what we wear. We need only to seek the Word of God. Galatians 3:27 says,
How do we clothe ourselves with Christ? By our actions and our words. My friend, Annie Downs, speaks of this very thing in her new book, Speak Love. If you need help reflecting Jesus with your words, this is a great resource.
Do your actions and words reflect Jesus to the world? When others look at us or listen to what we have to say, do they see and hear Jesus? If so, then you are clothed in Christ, and that’s a fashion trend that never goes out of style.
So, I ask you again, what are you wearing today? I’d suggest you make sure whatever it is, you coordinate it with some Jesus. You’ll look better than ever if you do.
