THE STORY OF STELLA - Part 2 [Shared for every wise woman to read]
It grieves my heart each time I see brothers struggling and striving to live sexually pure lives, yet fellow Christian sisters are a stumbling block to them with their indecent dressing. Almost every Christian woman confesses that they love God. But do they really mean it? Because if they do, we'll not have to deal with indecent dressing in the Christendom; for every woman will know that if they love God, they will also love His children, which means -they cannot dress indecently to lead any one of God's children to sin against God and against their body sexually. Each time you dress indecently as a woman, you make someone to lust, masturbate, fornicate or commit adultery. Please genuinely love people. Love the children of God. You are not walking in love but in hate when you make men lust, masturbate, fornicate or commit adultery with your indecent dressing.
Do you know that you do not really love God if you hate His children? A Christian brother who's a child of God you're instigating to commit the sin of lust, masturbation, fornication or adultery with your indecent dressing, you do not love, but hate. 1 John 4:20 explains this, "Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen."
Every man you cause to stumble in sexual sin - lust, masturbate or fornicate with your indecent dressing, you'll give account of before God on the judgement day. Beware of the warning of Mark 9:42, "It will be terrible for people who cause even one of my little followers to sin. Those people would be better off thrown into the ocean with a heavy stone tied around their necks."
You cannot truly possess the fear of God in your heart and the love of God in your heart and be boldly dressed in indecent clothes. If you have a glimpse of how many brothers are struggling to live pure and you keep making them stumble with your indecent dressing, you'll repent from your indecent dressing if you really possess the love of God in your heart.
You cannot profess to love God and hate the children of God. 1 John 5:2 says: "This is how we know that we love God's children: it is by loving God and obeying his commands." Is it possible to hate God's children and still love God? I believe you answered "No" based on the statement of the scripture above, but why then do many Christian women today profess to love God yet outrightly hate His children? This is what you do as a Christian woman each time you dress indecently and still profess love for God, because you cause a brother to sin sexually (lust, masturbate, fornicate, commit adultery, watch porn) when they see you dressed indecently.
The justification some women give by saying, "I wear what I'm comfortable with" is very wrong. Because when what you're comfortable with brings discomfort to a fellow believer, you're not practicing love but selfishness and self-centeredness. It is selfishness and self-centeredness that makes someone dress indecently as a professing Christian woman without giving concern on the effect it has on the minds of Christian men. Emulate the selflessness of Apostle Paul. In 1 Corinthians 8:13, he said, "Therefore, if what I eat causes my brother or sister to fall into sin, I will never eat meat again, so that I will not cause them to fall." And in Romans 14:15, he also admonished, "And if another believer is distressed by what you eat, you are not acting in love if you eat it. Don’t let your eating ruin someone for whom Christ died."
If I may ask, what joy and pleasure do you derive from seeing your fellow brothers in Christ falling into sexual sin every now and then ogling your exposed body? Is hurting others what brings you happiness? Please beloved sister, you've walked in this wrong path for long, it is time to make a U-turn and get onto the path of love and selflessness. Repent from indecent dressing and honor the Lord with your body by covering it appropriately like Ms. Stella has done. Love your fellow brothers in Christ. 1 John 3:18 enjoins us to love genuinely: "Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth." And Romans 15:1-3a instructs: "We who are strong must be considerate of those who are sensitive about things like this. We must not just please ourselves. We should help others do what is right and build them up in the Lord. For even Christ didn’t live to please himself..."
May God bless you as you start the new year 2020 dressing rightly and appropriately.
