He has clothed me with the garments of salvation!!!

Modesty. I’ve already said a lot about it. I think you can tell that it’s a subject about which I am passionate. But it doesn’t really matter what I have said. And it doesn’t really matter that I am passionate about it. What matters is what the word of God says. And it matters that God is passionate about it. He is passionate about purity of the heart, mind, body, and soul. He is passionate about the redeemed being continually conformed into the image of His perfect son, Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit.

Scripture on modest apparel:

1 Timothy 2:9-10
likewise also that women should adorn themselves in respectable apparel, with modesty and self-control, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly attire, but with what is proper for women who profess godliness--with good works.

Titus 2:3-5
Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves to much wine. They are to teach what is good, and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled.

Scripture on causing others to stumble:

Mark 9:42
Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him if a great millstone were hung around his neck and he were thrown into the sea.

Luke 17:1-2
And he said to his disciples, "Temptations to sin are sure to come, but woe to the one through whom they come! It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck and he were cast into the sea than that he should cause one of these little ones to sin.

Scripture on the Glory of God:

1 Chronicles 16:29
Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name;
bring an offering and come before him!
Worship the LORD in the splendor of holiness;

(Not in the splendor of beauty or the splendor of yourself, but the splendor of Holiness)

Romans 12:2
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.

Isaiah 61:10

I will greatly rejoice in the LORD;
my soul shall exult in my God,
for he has clothed me with the garments of salvation;
he has covered me with the robe of righteousness,
as a bridegroom decks himself like a priest with a beautiful headdress,
and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.

Praise God! I love this Scripture! Marinate in this...you are adorned in robes of righteousness and garments of salvation. PRAISE YOUR GOD!!!

I just read that verse (Isaiah 61:10) the other day! It's such a powerful metaphor!

whoops...the last comment was me, Jenn. I forgot that if I signed in to our google account it would say "single focus family."
