So as the world continues to go the way the Bible predicts, we see more and more clothing issues . . . that involve less and less clothing. Things that used to be left to the imagination are now stated boldly and openly under the cloud of perverseness the devil has spread abroad. So why was I on an escalator yesterday in the mall and I could look up and the lady in front of me has her rear end hanging out of the bottom of her shorts? Shorts and skirts have gotten shorter and tighter . . . and for what reason? It’s a sign that the world is getting farther and farther away from God. The Bible teaches in John 4:24 that God is a spirit. We are made in the image of God and the real us is spirit. We have a soul (will, emotions) and we live in a body. To be God focused means that you have to be spiritual. You should pray in the spirit (tongues) and you should recognize that God only deals in spirit.
I John 2:16 says, and this is the new living translation, “For the world offers only a craving for physical pleasure, a craving for everything we see, and pride in our achievements and possessions. These are not from the Father, but are from this world.” Let’s look at this verse in context of what victoria calls a secret, but it’s not a secret because it’s in the display case of their store for everyone to see and people are wearing less and less “top” clothes and getting closer and closer to showing undergarments . . . or what my grandmother used to call “underclothes” all the time. We see briefs and boxers that these fellas show when they sag. Victoria makes sale papers with half-naked models that they send into our homes to distract the husbands of the home. More leg, more buttock, more chest . . . more, more, more and for what reason? It’s to attract the eyes . . . that means your focus is more on how good you think your backside and thighs look than you do your spirit man. To focus on the flesh is to be worldly. To focus on the spirit is to be Godly.
Let’s look at this a little more closely, as it pertains to relationships. When you show flesh, you attract flesh . . . folks who want you because of how you look, not who you are and especially not who you are in Christ. Folks who are attracted to your body will leave you when they are no longer enamoured by your body. You know how it is when you learned how to play a video game and you’ve cleared all of the levels? You know then that it’s time to move on to a new game . . . Keep victoria’s secret. You are made in the image of God and don’t have to use your flesh as an attractant. Get saved, receive Christ and the let the fruit of the Spirit be the attractant. It’s guaranteed that what’s attracted will have staying power . . .get what God has intended for you.
