OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR TEENS 15 FEBRUARY 2019 – DRESSING TO KILL?

MEMORISE: Le your moderation be known to all men. The Lord is at hand. Philippians 4:5

Read: 1 Peter 3:3-4

3 Let not yours be the [merely] external adorning with [elaborate] interweaving and knotting of the hair, the wearing of jewelry, or changes of clothes;

4 But let it be the inward adorning and beauty of the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible and unfading charm of a gentle and peaceful spirit, which [is not anxious or wrought up, but] is very precious in the sight of God.

MESSAGE:

While it is good to look nice, neat and presentable, you must take care not to go overboard. Christian teenagers don’t dress to kill, you dress to heal. It is the devil that came to kill, steal and destroy, not Christian teenagers.

Anytime you dress and become a symbol of lust or temptation to the opposite sex, you have gone beyond being decent to the realm of becoming an agent of Satan to kill other people’s spiritual destiny.

If worldly girls expose their cleavages, and worldly boys ‘sag’ their trousers, should you do the same because you want to be seen as trendy and fashionable? If you do, then what is the difference between you and them? If your dressing is stirring up lust in the hearts of brothers/sisters, then you must change it. Read – Open Heavens 15 February 2019

You may not know it, but those who are not yet born again look up to you for the standard of righteousness and that involves dress sense too.

If you dress in a worldly way, you will be misleading them as they will wonder why you dress just like them if you profess to be born again Christians. The worst thing about this is that you would have lost the opportunity to bring such people to Christ.

ACTION POINT:
Look in the mirror every morning and ensure that you are not seductively dressed.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
Leviticus 20-21
Matthew 28

Hymn 15

1. Wonderful story of love;
Tell it to me again;
Wonderful story of love;
Wake the immortal strain!
Angels with rapture announce it,
Shepherds with wonder receive it;
Sinner, 0 won’t you believe It?
Wonderful story of love.

Chorus:
Wonderful! Wonderful!
Wonderful, Wonderful story of love.

2. Wonderful story of love,
Though you are far away;
Wonderful story of love;
Still He doth call today;
Calling from Calvary’s mountain,
Down from the crystal bright fountain,
E’en from the dawn of creation,
Wonderful story of love.

3. Wonderful story of love:
Jesus provides a rest;
Wonderful story of love;
For all the pure and blest,
Rest in those mansions above us,
With those who’ve gone on before us,
Singing the rapturous chorus,
Wonderful story of Love.
