• “I henceforth take Jesus Christ to be mine. I promise to receive Him as a husband to me. And I give myself to Him, unworthy though I am, to be His spouse. I ask of Him, in this marriage of spirit with spirit, that I may be of the same mind with Him — meek, pure, nothing in myself, and united in God’s will. And, pledged as I am to be His, I accept as part of my marriage portion, the temptations and sorrows, the crosses and the contempt which fell to Him. — Jeanne M.B. de la Mothe Guyon, Sealed with her ring.”

Your Philosophy Is Showing by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 08/17/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: The world’s view of clothing and fashion is quite different from the biblical view. Let’s take a minute and compare the world’s philosophy . . .

“You’ve got to dress so people notice you.”

Nancy: . . . with God’s idea.

“We choose clothing that glorifies God.”

“Clothes are for attracting attention.”

“The purpose of clothing is to cover and conceal the body.”

Nancy: Modesty is really a way of thinking about God, about men, and about ourselves.

“It’s just your body—do what you want with it.”

“Your body is God’s home—take care of it.”

“If you are going to be loved, first you have to be beautiful and alluring.”

“You are loved by God. He made you beautiful for His glory.”

Nancy: What do your clothing choices say about what you believe? Are you being influenced by the world’s philosophy? Or is your thinking based on the Word and the ways of God?

“What you wear reflects your heart.”

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “In all places and at all times, we can have that familiar friendship, we can have Him with us; and there may be through the day a constant interchange of private words, of little offerings, too small to have any name attached to them—by which the bonds of that familiar friendship grow closer and more real, until it comes to that special personal intimacy, which we call sanctity.” – Janet Erskine Stuart, 1857-1914
