For Adam also and for his wife the Lord God made long coats (tunics) of skins and clothed them – Gen. 3:21 (Amp. Bible) There is no reference point in the Bible that a Christian should put on rags or tattered cloth to portray a daily life of humility. If you willingly choose to put on rags or tattered clothes, people will despise your identity as a child of God and will tag you as a disgrace to the Kingdom. The fashion designers employed by God for the clothing of Aaron and his sons were asked to sew clothes that depict beauty, glory and honour to God (Ex. 28:40). It is mind-boggling that many Christians have exchanged their dignified royalty for seductive and worldly dresses. The Bible says God covers Himself with light and the robe (skirts of His train) He wears fills His temple (Isaiah 6:1 – Amp Bible). This makes it easy for God to stretch His legs from heaven to earth without uncovering Himself. When you put on short, tight and seductive clothes in the name of fashion, you are simply promoting seduction and not celebrating Christ. Today, many Christians are wearing fig leaves like Adam and Eve, who thought they were well dressed, when they sinned against God (Gen. 3:7). Both of them lost their royalty and sewed for themselves seductive clothes which kept them secluded from God's presence. They were simply half-dressed like most ungodly dresses that are in vogue in our society today. God saw them and shook His head. In order to salvage the situation and to give them a restored sense of dignity and royalty, God sewed for them long (not short) coats, for beauty, honour and glory. Above all, the most fashionable attire you can put on is Christ. That means people must see you and identify you as a child of God without having to question your royalty and decency. God is the prime mover of fashion that is established on righteousness and holiness. He took away our filthy self-righteousness, which are mere rags, to cloth us with His holiness. God loves you and doesn’t want you to fall short of His glory in the way you dress, among others. If you have amends or changes to make, do it as a proof of your sacrificial and irreversible love for God. May your clothes not cut you off from the commonwealth and Kingdom of Christ in Jesus name.
