Dress Like An “Israelite” Not Like An “Egyptian”

DAILY SOUL’S NOURISHMENT (DSN) BY PASTOR JULIUS U. BETHEL, PASTOR OF THE BIBLE PRACTISING CHURCH.

FRIDAY 28TH JUNE 2024

BIBLE REFERENCE: EXODUS 2:19

19 And they said, An Egyptian delivered us out of the hand of the shepherds, and also drew water enough for us, and watered the flock.

THE MESSAGE: A saying goes thus: “The way you dress, is the way you will be addressed.” That is true. If you dress like a lawyer, people will address you the way a lawyer should be addressed. If you dress like a police officer, you will be addressed in that same way. If you dress like a Muslim, you will be addressed that way. Similarly, if you dress like a Christian, everybody will address you that way, too.

 Actually, your dressing speaks volume about who you are. It reflects your beliefs, your social status, your profession, and so on.

Our Bible reference shows us the seven daughters of Reuel, the priest of Midian, whom Moses helped to fetch water and to get back home earlier than usual. When Reuel asked them what happened, they said it was an “Egyptian” that helped them. What is an Egyptian actually that helped them? No, not at all. He was called an Egyptian because he dressed like an Egyptian.

How do you dress? Like an “Egyptian” or an “Israelite”? How is your wardrobe? Filled with worldly clothes, and attires? Do you wear tight fitting and skimpy clothes? How about those so-called female trousers and shorts? What are you doing with the sleeveless, backless, topless and perforated clothes? Wearing them portray worldliness instead of godliness. They are Egyptian decorative materials. Don’t use them! Your beauty should not be of the outward man, but of the hidden man, of the heart. Your head and face should be void of their use.

You can’t wear them, if you are a pilgrim on the way to heaven. They do not bring glory to God or His church but to Satan and the world. How is God glorified by your Jezebelic or harlotry clothes? Your salvation should not only clean up the inside of you, it should also cleanup the “outside” of you, that is, your outward appearance, too! You must dress to please God, not your spouse, your boss or even yourself.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT: Looking godly and holy in dressing counts in the sight of God and the saints.

PRAYER POINT: Ask God to show you if dressing like an “Egyptian” matters to Him or not.
