It is good for us to ponder why we wear what we do. Genesis 35:1-three might shed some light on the subject. “Then God said to Jacob, ‘Go up to Bethel and settle there. Build an altar there to honor Me. That is where I appeared to you when you were running away out of your brother Esau.’ So Jacob spoke to his family and to everybody who was with him. He said, ‘Get rid of the strange gods you’ve gotten with you. Make yourselves pure, and alter your clothes. Come, let’s go as much as Bethel. There I’ll build an altar to honor God. He answered me when I was in trouble. He is been with me in every single place I’ve gone.'”
It’s doable that as Jacob began this religion-journey to Bethel with God, he recognized how much God had carried out for him, and the way much he needed God! His response was to take everyone with him on this religion-journey, so they might expertise God for themselves. “Get rid of the strange gods you could have with you. Make yourselves pure” implies the must be united in “coming clean” before God. “For all have sinned…” (Romans 3:23). Many then had “household idols” with them that they trusted, in addition to God. They did not belief God alone. “Change your garments” implies a change of heart toward sin. It was to be a mirrored image of what had taken place on the “inside.”
We would all benefit from a “non secular tub” to confess and eliminate sin earlier than we go to church. This is making ourselves pure. For some folks, clean is their “best.” For others, their heart tells them that wearing their greatest is showing God His worth to them. For still others, there needs to be a caution that their greatest isn’t merely showing off.
It is always the heart God is looking at, quite than the exterior. Nonetheless, what we wear to worship our holy, pure God could also be a sign of the place our hearts are. In case you have by no means considered it before, ask yourself, “Does it matter to me how I look when I am going to worship the King of Kings and Lord of Lords? More importantly, does it matter to Him?” We should all be the decide of that for ourselves. It’s a personal selection, keeping in mind that having a proper perspective toward God Himself is important preparation for worship at Mens Church Suits.
