RCCG HOUSE FELLOWSHIP MEMBER’S MANUAL 15 AUGUST 2021
TOPIC: YOU WILL BE ADDRESSED THE WAY YOU DRESS
MEMORY VERSE: “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.” Exodus 2:19
BIBLE TEXT: Exodus 2:15-19
LESSON INTRODUCTION: The primary purpose of dressing is to cover ones nakedness and to glorify God. As children of God, we should led our dressing give glory to God. Our dressing is the first description of who we are. In today’s bible text Moses was called an Egyptian by the way he dressed. Our character is judged by our style of dressing. A well refined, cultivated mind, will be revealed in the choice of simple and appropriate attire.
WHAT OUR DRESSING SAYS ABOUT US:
i. It should differentiate us from the world. – 1 John 2:15
ii. It should not become a tool of seduction. – Philippians 4:5
iii. It should send a message of godliness. – 1 Timothy 2:9
iv. It should reveal how much we love and value God
v. It has positive or negative influence on others. – Romans 14:15-16
THE NEED FOR MODERATION IN CHRISTIAN DRESSING (PHILIPPIANS 4:5):
We are naturally concerned, because it is the quest of every believer to grow into full stature of Christ: to have temperance and control over the body, to cultivate a sound mind and to be wise in all spiritual things. In other words, we are to be transformed from this world and not to be conformed to this world.
In order, therefore, to understand the implications of clothing, it is imperative that we know what the scripture says. According to Matthew 5:14-16, we are to stand out as lights in the world and to be different and this must surely be reflected in our dressing.
DANGERS OF INDECENT DRESSING:
.- It can lead to disrespect.
.- It can lead to assault.
.- It can lead to rape.
.- It can lead to arrest.
.- It can bring shame.
CONCLUSION: Dress well if you want people to address you well.
1. Thank God for your life, for bringing you out of darkness into His marvellous light.
2. Father, help me to bring glory to Your name through my dressing.
3. Father, continue to uphold and strengthen Daddy G.O. and his family.
4. Father, let there be spiritual, material and numerical growth in RCCG worldwide.
5. Individual prayer requests.
