Dear Readers in Christ, "Draw near to GOD, and He will draw near to you" (James 4:8).

“Unto Adam also and to his wife did the Lord God make coats of skins, and clothed them” (Gen 3:21)

God Himself took the trouble to clothe man. The coat of skin God made for them was an exemplary garment. It covered their whole body – the Amplified Bible renders ‘coats’ as ‘long coats or tunics’. It was also not a ‘see-through’ garment – like those we often see people wearing.

The Lord wants us to be properly clothed – in “modest apparel”, as St Paul calls it (I Tim 2:9). The New Living Translation says, it is not to be expensive garments or clothes that attract others.

Even in the Old Testament the Lord was very particular about how His peoppe dressed. ”I will punish all such as are clothed with strange apparel,” He says in Zephaniah 1:8. He also says, “A woman must not wear men’s clothing, nor a man wear women’s clothing”; He says He “detests” anyone who does this! (Deut 22:5 NIV).

Child of God, what is your dress like in the light of the above? Are your clothes what please the Lord? We should dress “as becometh women professing godliness” (I Tim 2:10). Does our dress reveal we are Christians? Are our clothes what the Lord would have made for us, if He would?
